By GeoConnexion - 1st July 2020 - 12:52

Septentrio, a provider of high-precision GNSS positioning solutions, has announced a new GNSS/INS receiver, AsteRx-i D UAS. This multi-frequency receiver combines reliable centimetre-level positioning with 3D orientation, enabling automated navigation of aerial drones and robots. With a high-performance IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) from Analog Devices integrated directly into the receiver board, AsteRx-i D UAS is compact and lightweight. Aboard the drone, its small form-factor combined with exceptionally low power consumption results in extended battery life and longer flight times. AsteRx-i D UAS is the first commercial product resulting from Septentrio’s collaboration with Analog Devices, delivering robust positioning and attitude (heading, pitch and roll) in demanding industrial environments. Both single antenna and dual antenna versions are available. The single antenna version provides a lightweight solution optimizing the system SWaP (size, weight and power). The dual antenna version is ideal for machines that need reliable heading directly from the start.
