The Solution

NovAtel was selected to provide the sensor's precision positioning capabilities, as it was the only GNSS receiver manufacturer able to meet all of the above specifications. The sensor, ultimately named the STEALTH™ sensor (Sensor for the Training of Elite Athletes) consists of a GNSS base receiver positioned on the slope to maximize satellite signal availability, a stretchable belt for the athlete with the STEALTH™ unit attached, and a helmet-mounted GNSS antenna for data collection. Specially developed software allowed the coaches to analyze the data of each training run to ensure the athlete was positioned in the most efficient way.
