Septentrio Announces Cm-Accurate GNSS Solution and Complimentary Software Suite, GeoTagZ, Specially Designed for the Drone Market

Despite being Septentrio’s smallest receiver, the AsteRx-m UAS provides you with consistent, robust and accurate positioning thanks to Septentrio’s in house GNSS+ algorithm technology. The receiver delivers cm-level accuracy at less than 600mW with GPS and less than 700mW with GLONASS. LOCK+ technology guarantees tracking under heavy usage and IONO+ guarantees no interference in challenging ionospheric conditions.

One of the key characteristics of AsteRx-m UAS and GeoTagZ is the seamless integration into any UAS. AsteRx-m UAS features standard connection functionality that directly connects to your autopilot, such as Pixhawk and Ardupilot. The power comes directly from a number of power sources including micro USB, a 9-30V external power supply or the vehicle power bus. GeoTagZ is available as a library of software to integrate into an UAS image processing tool chain.

Jan Leyssens, Commercial Product Manager at Septentrio says: “We want to make UAS based data collection and processing extremely simple. AsteRx-m UAS and GeoTagZ do just that. The GNSS board connects seamlessly to standard hardware and cameras used on a drone. Together with our software, we provide a data collection solution that provides cm-level accuracy without the need for ground control points or real-time data links, and that integrates effortlessly with an existing UAS image processing software solutions.”

The AsteRx-m UAS will be on display at booth #635 for the duration of AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems 2015, May 4-6, at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, GA.
