Altus Positioning Systems Announces New GNSS Receiver

 
“The APS-U provides multi-frequency capability together with GNSS heading, L-Band positioning and wireless communications, all within a hardened housing that meets military environmental specifications,” said Neil Vancans, CEO and president, Altus Positioning Systems. “With its wide range of interfaces and 9-30V power input options, the APS-U is an ideal GNSS solution for GIS data collection as well as machine control, agriculture, aerial photogrammetry, heading sensors and military applications. It can also be used in a variety of different formats, without heading information, in a robust receiver or base station configuration.”
 
The 136-channel receiver is designed to use all GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO frequencies. Integrated wireless options include Bluetooth® for easy configuration, plus a GSM or CDMA cellular modem and UHF radio modem for transmission and reception of RTK corrections. It also works with WAAS, EGNOS and other satellite-based augmentation systems.
 
The rugged new APS-U units incorporate Septentrio GNSS receiver engines, and meet MIL-STD-810G specifications for humidity, dust, shock and vibration, and operates under temperatures from 30 to minus 65 degrees Celsius.
 
Altus is showcasing the APS-U and other GPS/GNSS products in booth 2802 at the ESRI 2012 Users Conference in San Diego this week. Journalists interested in meeting with Altus at the show should contact Jim Rhodes at +1 (757) 753-1238 (mobile) or jrhodes@rhodescomm.com.
