NovAtel Inc. recently announced the release of the 7.200 firmware for its next generation of receivers, the OEM729, OEM719 and OEM7700, and with the release introduced new positioning functionality including the Interference Toolkit. The 7.200 software interface is backwards compatible with the OEM6 family software with the addition of the following key features:

• Interference Toolkit – Using NovAtel Connect 2.0, this allows the user to visually represent the RF spectrum levels to detect and manually mitigate RF interference. The receiver will auto detect in-band interference and report it in the RXSTATUS word.
• TerraStar-L service — NovAtel OEM7 receivers now support TerraStar-L, a new 40 centimeter Precise Point Positioning (PPP) correction service for broad accuracy applications including agriculture, construction, and GIS. TerraStar-L is a subscription based correction service that is delivered globally via satellites. As with TerraStar-C, the TerraStar-L correction service delivery is described as exceptionally reliable with TerraStar network infrastructure consisting of global reference stations, and fully redundant control centers
• RTK Assist – NovAtel’s RTK Assist enables users to maintain RTK-level accuracy during correction outages or disruptions. It uses multiple geostationary satellites for its corrections delivery and is available globally. To use RTK Assist, the NovAtel receiver must be capable of RTK positioning and L-band tracking. In addition, the receiver must have an active RTK Assist subscription.
• New Land Profile for INS – Provides performance benefits for land vehicles including: dead reckoning capabilities for extended loss of GPS signals, robust alignment routines, and improved attitude performance.

Compatible with Windows 10, NovAtel Connect 2.0 has a new look and feel and allows for an easy graphical interface to communicate with the OEM7 family of receivers. It can also be used to graphically display the RF spectrum levels reported by the Interference Toolkit feature and manually turn on filters to quickly identify and mitigate RF interference present that is affecting receiver performance.
