Septentrio, a provider of high-precision GNSS technology, and CORE, a Japanese system integrator with extensive experience in GNSS, announced an agreement to jointly develop a receiver which can utilize the Centimeter Level Augmentation Service (CLAS) of Japan’s Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS). The two companies have also entered into a distribution contract which allows CORE to sell Septentrio high-precision positioning technology including CLAS-capable GNSS receivers, in the Japanese market.Septentrio’s multi-frequency GPS/GNSS receiver AsteRx4 will be used as a platform for the development of CLAS functionality. Septentrio receivers already track the L6 signal and can use QZSS for increased positioning availability and reliability. CORE’s know-how will be instrumental for the deployment of CLAS on Septentrio receivers. The two companies are planning to launch their CLAS-enabled receiver in January 2020.
