NovAtel® Introduces Dual-Antenna, Dual-Frequency RTK GNSS Receiver with Advanced Heading Capabilities

(Calgary, Alberta - February 2, 2015)  Today, NovAtel Inc. announced the FlexPak6D™ enclosed GNSS receiver, a flexible dual-antenna solution for application developers seeking a high precision heading-capable positioning engine for space constrained applications.

Designed for efficient and rapid integration, this compact, lightweight receiver tracks GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou. Antenna placement is flexible which means the antenna baseline can be set according to space available on the vehicle and the heading accuracy required. In addition, the modular nature of the FlexPak6D's OEM6® firmware provides users with the ability to configure the receiver for their unique application needs.

Scalable for sub-metre to centimetre-level positioning, the FlexPak6D delivers NovAtel's ALIGN® precision heading and relative heading firmware, as well as our GLIDE™ firmware for smooth decimetre-level pass-to-pass accuracy, and RAIM for increased GNSS pseudorange integrity.

Jason Hamilton, Vice President of Marketing for NovAtel stated, “Our FlexPak6D builds on our popular lightweight FlexPak™ form factor. The modular, flexible design makes it easy to integrate into land, air and marine-based industries, particularly for low payload UAV and robotic applications.”

The FlexPak6D will be available for shipping February 2, 2015. To learn more about the FlexPak6D visit www.novatel.com/flexpak6d
