NovAtel announced earlier this year that its new line of OEMV GPS receivers will be capable of tracking satellites from the growing Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) constellation operated by the Russian government. Initial releases of the OEMV-2 and OEMV-3 models were available to customers by the end of spring and included optional dual-frequency GLONASS measurements. Future releases will include full position and Real-time Kinematic (RTK) options as well as a GLONASS enabled, single-frequency OEMV-1 model.
The OEMV receivers set a new standard in geo-location performance. In addition to GLONASS capability, the OEMV product line supports the L2C and L5 frequencies, and an expanded Application Programming Interface (API). NovAtel’s OEMV receivers are also designed to meet the European Union’s new Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) certificate requirements.
Along with exciting developments with Russian and other European agencies, NovAtel has also expanded operations in China. This has resulted in several compliance issues, RoHS certificate compatibility in particular, coming to light. The China RoHS scope differs from Europe’s in the following ways:
NovAtel designs, markets and sells high-precision positioning components and sub-systems used in a variety of commercial applications. NovAtel is also the principal supplier of reference receivers to national aviation ground networks in the US, Japan, Europe, China and India. For more information, visit www.novatel.com.
