Multi-Constellation for Enhanced Positioning

Capable of tracking GPS+GLONASS L1 and L2 plus L-Band, the SMART6-L improves position availability in obstructed sky conditions. Dual-frequency tracking minimizes the impact of ionospheric disturbances, further enhancing field productivity. Optional L-Band tracking using TerraStar improves positioning accuracy outside of L1 SBAS coverage areas. Optional Galileo E1 and BeiDou B1 tracking is also available.

Smooth Pass -to-Pass Accuracy using GLIDE

SMART6-L 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.

Multiple Interfaces for Maximum Flexibility

NMEA 0183 compatible RS-232 serial ports and a NMEA2000 compatible CAN port provide maximum flexibility. The SMART6-L also provides simulated radar ground speed output1, 1 PPS output, an event mark input and three daylight readable status LEDs. Built-in magnets simplify mounting and fixed mounting is also available.

1. Ground speed output only supported on HW revision 3.03 and higher with FW revision 6.61 and higher

2. PPP correction services provided by TerraStar
