The POS AV products now support on-board OmniSTAR XP real-time differential GPS corrections using a purpose-built GNSS+L Band aircraft antenna and an embedded BD960 GNSS receiver.
Hill , Ontario - Applanix announced that its POS AV products now
support on-board OmniSTAR XP real-time differential GPS corrections using a
purpose-built GNSS+L Band aircraft antenna and an embedded BD960 GNSS receiver.
"The improved position accuracy obtained using
OmniSTAR XP can save time and money for many types of mapping
applications," said Joe Hutton, Director of Airborne Products at Applanix.
"Enabling the on-board support in our POS AV products ensures our
customers can take advantage of this with even less up-front cost."
OmniSTAR XP is a Satellite Based Augmentation Service
(SBAS) that provides real-time corrections for GPS signals in order to improve
positioning accuracy. Until now, Applanix POS AV users needed to add an
external SBAS receiver and mount a separate L-Band antenna on the aircraft
fuselage to receive these corrections.
Now with the on-board capability and single GNSS+L
Band antenna, the benefits of SBAS corrections can be obtained without the
inconvenience and extra cost of having to source and install third party
components. Users only need to install their POS AV system as usual and
configure it with an 'XP' subscription purchased directly from OmniSTAR.
Subscription details and coverage maps can be found at
POS AV products with support for on-board OmniStar XP
are available immediately through the Applanix sales network. For more
