Dual-Antenna Input

Dual-frequency, dual antenna input allows the OEM617D to harness the power of NovAtel CORRECT with RTK and ALIGN functionality. This makes the OEM617D ideal for ground vehicle, marine or aircraft based systems, providing industry leading GNSS multi-constellation heading and position data in static and dynamic environments.

Designed for Flexibility

The modular nature of NovAtel's OEM6 firmware gives users the flexibility to configure the OEM617D for their unique application needs. Scalable to offer sub-metre to centimetre level positioning, it is field upgradable to with selected OEM6 family software options. Options include NovAtel CORRECT™ with RTK for centimetre-level real-time positioning, ALIGN® for precise heading and relative positioning, GLIDE for decimetre-level pass-to-pass accuracy and RAIM for increased GNSS pseudorange integrity.

Customization with an API

Application Programming Interface (API) functionality is available on the OEM617D. Using a recommended compiler with the API library, an application can be developed in a standard C/C++ environment to run directly on the receiver platform, eliminating system hardware, reducing development time and resulting in a faster time to market.
