Innovative product brings convenience to GNSS users

(22 June 2020 - Septentrio) Septentrio, a leader in high-precision GNSS positioning solutions, announces today the launch of AsteRx-m2 Sx OEM board.

With this GNSS receiver Septentrio pioneers a novel approach to high-accuracy positioning. Septentrio’s latest core GNSS technology is integrated with a sub-decimeter correction service enabling simple plug-and-play positioning solutions. High-accuracy positioning is available directly out of the box as GNSS corrections are automatically streamed to the receiver. This significantly simplifies the user’s GNSS receiver set-up process and eliminates completely the hassle of corrections service subscription and maintenance.

“This product marks a new step for GNSS technology towards convenience and ease-of-use”, said Danilo Sabbatini, Product Manager at Septentrio. “By integrating the correction service directly into the GNSS receiver we are removing the hassle of positioning service set-up and maintenance from the user. This means faster set-up times for our customers and worry-free, always-on high accuracy positioning throughout the receiver lifetime.”

AsteRx-m2 Sx is an efficient positioning solution for small robots, aerial drones and automation applications. Its optimized Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) means longer operation on a single battery charge and better value in the field. Advanced anti-jamming technology AIM+ ensures robust and reliable operation in challenging environments even in the presence of RF interference, which can be caused by illegal devices called “jammers”.

AsteRx-m2 Sx offers lifelong sub-decimeter accuracy with fast convergence time in US and Europe.
