NovAtel Upgrades SPAN-CPT with OEM6 GNSS

NovAtel has announced that its single-box SPAN-CPT GNSS/INS receiver now supports the company’s next-generation OEM6 GNSS technology platform.

According to the company, the OEM6 GNSS engine significantly improves positioning performance through its support of GPS and GLONASS, all-in-view satellite tracking, and intelligent measurement selection.


NovAtel has announced that its single-box SPAN-CPT GNSS/INS receiver now supports the company’s next-generation OEM6 GNSS technology platform.

According to the company, the OEM6 GNSS engine significantly improves positioning performance through its support of GPS and GLONASS, all-in-view satellite tracking, and intelligent measurement selection.

Jason Hamilton, director of marketing for NovAtel, says the company kept the design of the enhanced SPAN-CPT identical to its legacy product to facilitate the upgrade process for customers. “The enhanced SPAN-CPT is fully backwards compatible with the previous generation of product. It retains the same compact form factor with identical pin-out and log structure,” Hamilton says.

As with the previous generation product, the upgraded SPAN-CPT integrates NovAtel’s precision receiver technology with fiber optic gyro and MEMS accelerometer inertial components from KVH Industries in one compact unit.

The tight-coupling of the GNSS and INS technologies optimizes the raw GNSS and IMU data, delivering a superior position, velocity and attitude solution, the companys says.
