Septentrio has introduced a highly advanced product that will bring convenience to GNSS users.

FREMONT, CA: Septentrio is a frontrunner in the high-precision GNSS positioning solutions. The company has recently introduced the AsteRx-m2 Sx OEM board. With this GNSS receiver, Septentrio innovators provide a novel method to the high-accuracy positioning. The GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) consists of the American GPS, European Galileo, Russian GLONASS, Chinese BeiDou, Japan’s QZSS, and India’s NavIC. These satellite constellations transmit the information of the position to the receivers, which they utilize for calculating their absolute position.

Septentrio’s new fundamental GNSS technology is incorporated with a sub-decimeter improvement service that enables simple plug-and-play positioning solutions. Furthermore, high-accuracy positioning is accessible directly out of the box because GNSS corrections are automatically issued into the receiver. This considerably simplifies the procedure of the GNSS receiver set-up and entirely reduces the difficulty of corrections service subscription and maintenance.

According to Danilo Sabbatini, Product Manager at Septentrio, “This product marks a new step for GNSS technology towards convenience and ease-of-use.” He further mentioned that “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 effective positioning solution for small robots, aerial drones, and automation applications. It has enhanced Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP), which can be used for more extended operation on a single battery charge and improved value in the field. Improved anti-jamming technology AIM+ makes sure about the stable and dependable operation under challenging environments even when there is RF interference, which can be triggered by illicit devices known as the jammers. Furthermore, the AsteRx-m2 Sx will provide a lifelong sub-decimeter accuracy with fast convergence time in the US and Europe.
