  • NovAtel’s SPAN® technology couples NovAtel’s GNSS receiver technology with an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). We offer a variety of IMUs to provide the accuracy required by each application. In airborne mobile mapping applications higher grad IMUs are typically needed. Smaller all-in-one systems or OEM can be used for UAV applications.
  • Maximize the performance of your GNSS/INS hardware by getting the position, velocity and attitude accuracy your application requires with assistance from Waypoint post processing tools.
  • Integrate NovAtel’s SPAN technology with cameras, LiDAR and other sensors to achieve the best results. 
  • NovAtel CORRECT™ provides a single source for GNSS correction services and support. As a comprehensive NovAtel supplied solution it makes it easy to achieve the best possible position. Centimetre, decimetre, and metre-level solutions are available with corrections delivered by TerraStar
