NavCom Technology Announced VueStar

NavCom Technology announced the availability of VueStar, a complete global navigation system configured specifically for all aerial survey applications. VueStar offers decimeter-positioning accuracy in real-time to surveyors working with aerial photogrammetry, LiDAR and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). VueStar utilizes NavCom's SF-2050M dual-frequency GPS receiver providing position and velocity up to 10 times a second. Included in the system package are: all necessary cabling, a combined GPS/StarFire aircraft certified antenna, 64 MB for internal data logging, event input for minimal data latency, 1 pps output and a one-year global StarFire license. The StarFire system utilizes a network of more than 50 GPS reference stations around the world to compute GPS satellite orbit and clock corrections. These corrections are broadcast via three geosynchronous satellites to the GPS receiver, enabling precise real-time navigation without the need for a ground base station.
