Trimble Introduces Multi-GNSS Module for System Integrators

Trimble MB-Two module

Trimble has introduced its dual-antenna MB-Two GNSS module, which delivers GNSS-based heading plus pitch or roll in an industry-standard form factor for system integrators.

According to Trimble, the module’s embedded Z-Blade GNSS technology uses all available dual-frequency GNSS signals equally, without any constellation preference, to deliver fast and stable centimeter-accurate position and heading information. The MB-Two is designed as a solution for a variety of applications such as unmanned, agriculture, automotive, marine, and military systems.

The MB-Two is designed as a solution for a variety of applications such as unmanned, agriculture, automotive, marine, and military systems.

Trimble made the announcement today (May 4, 2016) at AUVSI’s XPONENTIAL 2016 in New Orleans, the largest trade show for the unmanned systems and robotics industry.

The MB-Two features an enhanced dual-core GNSS engine with 240 channels capable of tracking L1/L2 frequencies from the GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou constellations. The GNSS engine supports Trimble RTX correction services, including CenterPoint RTX and RangePoint RTX, delivered worldwide via L-Band satellite. According to the company, the MB-Two combined with CenterPoint RTX delivers centimeter-level positioning without requiring a local base station or virtual reference system (VRS) network.

“The MB-Two is designed for easy integration and rugged dependability. The size, weight and power specifications of the unit make it the ideal choice for smaller unmanned platforms,” said Elmar Lenz, general manager of Trimble’s Integrated Technologies Division.

The Trimble MB-Two module is available now through the Trimble GNSS OEM international network of representatives and authorized dealers.
