Precision GNSS Module for Industrial, Last-Mile and IoT Platforms

Swift Navigation announced the availability of its Precision GNSS Module (PGM), designed to offer fast evaluation and a quick path to production for those requiring a precise positioning solution.

PGM is available in an industry-standard mPCIe (mini peripheral component interconnect express) format and is designed specifically for Swift’s Starling positioning engine running on a host application processor to deliver real-time precision navigation. The PGM utilizes STMicroelectronics’ TeseoV chipset in Quectel’s multi-constellation, dual-band LG69T-AP receiver, to create a solution geared for customers building industrial, last mile and Internet of Things (IoT) platforms.

The LG69T family of products, based on the ST TeseoV, is a solution meant for demanding precision applications that require centimeter accuracies. The LG69T-AP—supporting L1/L5 bands—has an integrated ST IMU and Processor that is used to support dead reckoning for signal-compromised areas such as urban canyons, parking lots and underground structures. This solution is designed for fast and easy integration and deployment, using industry-standard protocols, to reduce customer engineering investment and enable quick time to market.

It operates with highest accuracy when used with Swift’s Skylark cloud-based, wide-area precise positioning service. Skylark delivers accuracy down to 10 cm. The solution supports standard RTCM OSR (Observation Space Representation) and SSR (State Space Representation) correction formats. Skylark is currently available for integration into wide-area, high-precision positioning applications across the continental United States and Europe,  in  Japan, South Korea and Australia, with plans underway to expand globally.
