NavCom Technology Inc. enhanced the VueStar aerial survey solution, which utilizes the global satellite-based StarFire Network to provide precise positioning worldwide without the need for RTK base stations or GPS post-processing. This system introduces three significant enhancements: improved GPS signal processing, StarPac mission software and the optional Event Latch Interface. The new 12-channel, dual-frequency GPS receiver computes real-time positions at up to 25 times a second, reacquires GPS signals faster and includes improved troposphere modeling to better compensate for changes in altitude. Providing both pre-mission and post-mission processing, StarPac provides critical tools for mission planning, as well as RINEX conversion, datum conversion, trajectory plotting and output of position data in a number of formats, along with a quality/figure of merit for each position. The optional Event Latch Interface conditions the event signal, allowing VueStar to operate successfully with a variety of cameras and airborne sensors. This self-powered module also contains internal de-bounce circuitry to ensure proper event timing. The VueStar System includes a GPS receiver, aircraft antenna, a one-year global StarFire license, the StarPac mission software, and all necessary cables and documentation. (NavCom, Torrance, Calif.)
