New High Vibe, Multi Constellation Antenna Enhances Tracking Capabilities

(Calgary, Alberta - June 16, 2014) NovAtel® Inc, an OEM provider of high precision Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) positioning products, today announced the launch of the GPS-703-GGG-HV, a high vibration, triple-frequency antenna. A part of NovAtel's high performance Pinwheel® antenna product line, the GPS-703-GGG-HV is ideal for machine control and precision agriculture applications.

The GPS-703-GGG-HV receives L1, L2, L5 GPS; L1, L2, L3 GLONASS; B1, B2, BeiDou; and E1, E5a/b Galileo frequencies for enhanced positioning reliability and availability. The GPS-703-GGG-HV provides excellent multi-path rejection, and a highly stable phase centre ensures reception is unaffected by changes to the rotation of the antenna or satellite elevation.

This antenna is similar in form factor to NovAtel's existing GPS-700 series. It is enclosed in a durable, waterproof housing which meets the MIL-STD-810G for vibration, corrosive environment and salt spray.

The GPS-703-GGG-HV meets both MIL-STD-810G Method 514.6 E-1 Category 24, and Method 415.6 C-3 Category 4 vibration specifications making it suitable for use on large heavy-duty vehicles and trailers. The GPS-703-GGG-HV handles the effects of high impact shocks typically experienced in road and rail transport environments, maximizing the performance of GNSS receivers under these harsh conditions.

The GPS-703-GGG-HV is available to order on June 23, 2014.
