Multi-Constellation for Enhanced Positioning

Capable of tracking GPS+GLONASS L1 and L2, the SMART6 improves position availability in obstructed sky conditions. Dual-frequency tracking minimizes the impact of ionospheric disturbances, further enhancing field productivity. Optional Galileo E1 and BeiDou B1 tracking is available.

Smooth Pass-to-Pass Accuracy using GLIDE

SMART6 features NovAtel's GLIDE technology to provide ultra-smooth positioning and exceptional pass-to-pass accuracy. GLIDE's steady, smooth output is especially suited for manual guidance and auto-steer applications and will bridge through short periods of poor satellite availability. Dual-frequency GLIDE further improves the absolute accuracy of the GLIDE position and creates a robust solution, resistant to the effects of high ionospheric activity.

STEADYLINE® Smooth Positioning GNSS Firmware

NovAtel’s STEADYLINE technology reduces position jumps that can occur when a GNSS receiver changes positioning modes. This effect is especially evident when a receiver transitions from a high accuracy RTK position solution to a lower accuracy solution such as PPP, DGPS, SBAS+GLIDE or even autonomous GLIDE™. Smooth transitions are extremely important for precision agricultural steering applications where sudden jumps are disruptive.

Tilt Compensation for Increased Accuracy

With optional integrated tilt compensation, the SMART6 improves guidance and autosteer performance on uneven terrain.

Integrated Bluetooth® Connectivity

SMART6 is available with optional Bluetooth technology to provide wireless connectivity.

Multiple Interfaces for Maximum Flexibility

NMEA 0183 compatible RS-232 serial ports and a NMEA2000 compatible CAN port provide maximum flexibility. The SMART6 also provides simulated radar ground speed output, 1 PPS output, an event mark input and three daylight readable status LEDs. Built-in magnets simplify mounting and fixed mounting is also available.
