Eos Positioning Systems Rolls Out Arrow Gold GNSS Receiver

Terrebonne, Canada-based Eos Positioning Systems has released its Arrow Gold Bluetooth GNSS receiver. Arrow Gold is the first iOS, Android, and Windows Bluetooth GNSS receiver to work with GPS, Glonass, Galileo, BeiDou, Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS), and the Atlas correction service, the company said.

The palm-sized Arrow Gold receiver provides centimeter-level accuracy on iOS, Android, and Windows devices. Arrow Gold, which costs $4,395, works with such data collection systems as Esri’s Collector/Survey123 and others.

Arrow Gold also features a real-time kinematic (RTK) capability, for poor cellphone coverage areas, called SafeRTK. The SafeRTK feature uses satellite corrections to work when the user’s RTK network connection is lost, even in urban areas, the company said.

SafeRTK works when wireless coverage fails, allowing users to achieve centimeter-accuracy for as much as 20 minutes, free of charge, the company said.

Arrow Gold includes a rechargeable battery pack, weighs less than a pound, is waterproof, and works in rugged environments, the company said. The unit’s Bluetooth radio stays connected to a mobile device as far as 1,000 meters away.

Arrow Gold will be marketed to such markets as GIS, environmental, agriculture, electric/gas/water/telecom utilities, surveying, machine control, and governments.

Arrow Gold features include:

  • Supports GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS.
  • Triple-Frequency L1/L2/L5.
  • 1-centimeter RTK real-time accuracy.
  • Long-range RTK Baselines up to 50 kilometers.
  • SafeRTK for poor cell coverage areas.
  • Worldwide satellite correction service.
  • 100 percent iOS, Android, and Windows compatibility.
