NovAtel Inc. has announced availability of its FlexPak6D enclosed GNSS receiver, a dual-antenna solution for application developers seeking a high precision heading-capable positioning engine for space-constrained applications.
 
Designed for efficient and rapid integration, the compact, lightweight receiver tracks GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou. Antenna placement is flexible, according to the company, which means the antenna baseline can be set according to space available on the vehicle and the heading accuracy required. In addition, NovAtel says the modular nature of the FlexPak6D’s OEM6 firmware provides users with the ability to configure the receiver for particular application needs.
 
Scalable for sub-meter to centimeter-level positioning, the 120-channel FlexPak6D delivers NovAtel’s ALIGN precision heading and relative heading firmware, as well as the company’s GLIDE firmware for smooth decimeter-level pass-to-pass accuracy, and RAIM for increased GNSS pseudorange integrity.
 
Jason Hamilton, vice-president of marketing for NovAtel, says, “Our FlexPak6D builds on our popular lightweight FlexPak form factor. The modular, flexible design makes it easy to integrate into land, air and marine-based industries, particularly for low payload UAV and robotic applications.”
 
The FlexPak6D is available for shipping now.
