NovAtel Launches TerraStar-L Correction Service

NovAtel Inc. has announced the launch of its TerraStar-L, a new 40 centimeter precise point positioning (PPP) correction service. TerraStar-L is a subscription based correction service that delivers GNSS correction data via satellite to users of precision navigation systems.
 
The company says that position accuracy of 40 centimeters makes TerraStar-L ideal for broad accuracy applications such as agriculture, GIS or unmanned vehicle navigation, particularly where tree lines, buildings and other obstructions can be an impediment to continuous positioning.

OriginGPS Shrinks Multi-GNSS Module

OriginGPS has launched its Multi Micro Spider multi-GNSS module, which features a 5.6 x 5.6-millimeter footprint and 2.65-millimeter height.

Like its predecessor, the Multi Micro Hornet (which measured 10 x 10 x 6.1 millimeters), the ORG4033 uses MediaTek’s MT3333 and is positioned for applications that require minimal power consumption and ultra-small form factors, ranging from wearables to drones. Unlike the Hornet, the Multi Micro Spider supports Europe’s Galileo system as well as GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou.
