This latest firmware upgrade features optimizations to NovAtel’s AdVance RTK for industry leading GPS-only and GPS+GLONASS RTK positioning performance.
Calgary, Alberta, Canada – NovAtel Inc. (NovAtel), the leading original equipment
manufacturer (OEM) of precise positioning technology, announced in
Calgary, the launch of its Version 3.800 firmware for its OEMV
family of GNSS precision receivers. This latest firmware upgrade features
optimizations to NovAtel’s AdVance RTK for industry leading
GPS-only and GPS+GLONASS RTK positioning
research and algorithm adjustments have been made to AdVance RTK,
increasing solution availability and accelerating ambiguity resolution in real
world conditions while maintaining high accuracy. Additional routines have been added to
minimize the effects of increasing solar activity for consistent and
reliable RTK positioning in long baseline RTK positioning in
active ionosphere conditions.
Comprehensive support for RTCM Master Auxiliary Concept (MAC)
messages has also been added for optimal positioning accuracy in RTK
networks featuring MAC technology.
intelligence has been added to AdVance RTK to automate RTK
positioning calculations depending on the working conditions of customers. Whether users are working with a single
physical GNSS base station, or within an RTK network (MAC,
VRS, FKP), AdVance RTK automatically adjusts its
positioning algorithm to maximize positioning accuracy without any user
Masterson, Portfolio Manager, Core/Survey commented, "NovAtel has always
provided the best in accuracy for our customers" adding,
"Automating AdVance RTK for optimal positioning accuracy
regardless of the scenario minimizes integration efforts of NovAtel
technology and ensures the universal high performance that NovAtel
latest firmware release and the corresponding CDU software are available
at no additional charge to all OEMV customers. By providing this functionality as a firmware
update, customers can apply it to their existing receivers, enabling quick
changeover and no downtime.
