NovAtel Inc. has announced that, with the release of its 6.400 firmware, NovAtel CORRECT positioning technology is now available with TerraStar’s precise point positioning (PPP) corrections.

Delivered via L-band, TerraStar corrections provide decimeter-level accuracy worldwide on all NovAtel OEM6 high precision receivers, without users having to add base-station infrastructure, according to NovAtel, headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Subscriptions to the TerraStar correction service are available to customers through NovAtel’s standard sales order process, and interested parties may contact a NovAtel sales representative.

NovAtel CORRECT combines data from multiple GNSS satellite constellations with corrections from a variety of sources, to deliver an optimal position solution. The company notes that the strategic importance of TerraStar’s decimeter-level correction service to NovAtel’s product offering is reflected in the recent purchase of TerraStar parent company Veripos by Hexagon.

“The OEM nature of TerraStar’s correction service makes them a perfect partner for NovAtel,” stated Sara Masterson, new business development manager for NovAtel. “We are extremely pleased with the performance of our current TerraStar offering and, with the ability to now work more closely together, we are very excited about developing positioning innovations for our customers in the future.”

NovAtel CORRECT is available for land, air, and sea applications, with customers able to access receivers, antennas, and correction services through a single sales channel. NovAtel says this arrangement enables integrators to choose pricing and subscription options that best match their OEM business objectives.
