The ruggedized MR-1 receiver is water- and dustproof and operates at an operational temperature range of -40°C to 75°C and offers high-quality multipath rejection and increased resistance to near-band interference from the satellite communications systems that are commonly found in marine applications, according to the company.

When combined with Topcon’s Quartz Lock Loop technology, the MR-1 offers continuous operation during extreme vibration and shock, typical of intense dynamic environments, Langen said.
