With the included subscriber access functionality, customers can activate subscriptions remotely via satellite uplink. While LX-2 automatically tracks the best available satellite broadcast, customers have the option to manually set which satellite to track. Additionally, LX-2 is supported by Hemisphere GPS’ exclusive COAST™ technology to ensure accuracy is maintained during temporary loss of the differential signal.
“Our new LX-2 board provides increased access to HP, XP, or VBS differential signals and improves the accuracy of our GPS receivers,” said Phil Gabriel, VP and General Manager, Precision Products, for Hemisphere GPS. “This additional differential solution further enables accurate and reliable GPS positioning, particularly in regions where other differential signals are not currently accessible. This is another example of Hemisphere GPS’ ability to quickly develop and implement a variety of GPS solutions that enables us to serve a growing and global marketplace.”
LX-2 is designed for use by Original Equipment Manufacturers that want to augment P200 and P100 series boards with L-Band differential capability. LX-2 has the same form factor as the P200 and P100 and is directly compatible for convenient integration. Hemisphere GPS plans to integrate this new technology into existing and future GPS and GNSS receiver products.
The LX-2 OEM board will be available starting in June 2011 through the Hemisphere GPS Precision Products global dealer network.
