Septentrio has completed delivery of PolaRx5 multi-constellation GNSS reference receivers and antenna systems to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The monitoring systems will be deployed through the Volcano Hazards Program (VHP) for volcano monitoring stations in Alaska and at various international locations through the Volcano Disaster Assistance Program (VDAP). The PolaRx5 receivers take full advantage of the new 5.1.0 firmware which includes support for on-board PPP and dynamic response tuned for seismic applications. The PolaRx5 tracks all visible signals from Galileo, GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, IRNSS and QZSS constellations. It provides industry-leading measurement quality and robust interference mitigation thanks to Septentrioâs patented AIM+ technology. The PolaRx5 supports these advanced features and more with a power consumption that is scalable from less than 2.0 watts.
