As with all NovAtel OEM6 series receivers, the OEM615 tracks existing and planned GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and Compass signals. With 120 dynamic channels configured to track GPS + GLONASS L1/L2 now as well as constellations and signals yet to become operational. According to the company, the OEM615 is backward-compatible with NovAtel’s popular OEMV-1 series form factor, providing integrators an upgrade path to bring new products to market quickly.

The receiver supports NovAtel performance-enhancing firmware options, including AdVance RTK, ALIGN, and GL1DE, as well as receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM), enabling users to configure the OEM615 for application-specific needs. Application programming interface (API) functionality provides system developers the ability to eliminate system hardware and reduce reducing development time.

Gord Dale, NovAtel’s marketing vice-president, says that the new receiver’s compact form factor is "ideal for space-constrained applications such as unmanned vehicles, survey, aerospace and defense.”

The OEM615 receiver is available for purchase immediately.
