SCOTTSDALE, Arizona, June 15, 2015—Hemisphere GNSS announces the release of AtlasLink, their all-new multi-GNSS, multi-frequency smart antenna preconfigured to receive corrections from Hemisphere’s just-announced Atlas™ global corrections service. Built around the industry’s most powerful multi-purpose GNSS smart antenna, the bundled solution provides users worldwide with the easiest way to utilize Atlas corrections – either directly from AtlasLink, or on their existing receivers via innovative new technologies built into AtlasLink.
“AtlasLink is a game changer” declared Chuck Joseph, Hemisphere GNSS CEO & President. “On its own it is a fantastic smart antenna with industry-leading RTK, connectivity and management capabilities. However, when you add in the ability to deliver Atlas GNSS corrections to equipment you already own, from any vendor, you have a real powerhouse that will change the industry.”
Global Corrections for EVERYONE
AtlasLink debuts two world first capabilities that change the rules of global augmentation services:
– SmartLink™ – Enables a user to directly connect AtlasLink as an extension to any existing system that has industry standard connectivity options.
– BaseLink™ – Automatically sets AtlasLink up as a permanent reference station – delivering corrections to any other GNSS receiver being used for positioning.
Previously, to use high fidelity corrections, users were tied to the single provider supported by their equipment manufacturer, and had to purchase licenses for every device that may need access to those corrections. From today, whether users would like to utilize Atlas corrections data on equipment that doesn’t have the ability to receive L-Band signals, or would like to use Atlas corrections on systems that currently receive L-Band corrections from another source, they now have the freedom to do so. The combined capabilities of SmartLink and BaseLink enable users to utilize Atlas corrections on any receiver from any vendor that supports industry standard correction formats.
Industry Leading Technology
AtlasLink was designed from the ground up to excel in challenging environments and is ideal for use in a variety of applications including precision agriculture, machine control, construction, mining, and marine.
“When we designed this product we targeted the highest level user experience in terms of performance and flexibility,” says Rodrigo Leandro, Hemisphere Director of Engineering. “We also looked into other areas such as connectivity and customer service experience. The result is the most advanced and intelligent way of enabling customers to use high-accuracy GNSS in different markets.”
Designed to easily be private-labeled, AtlasLink is a versatile smart antenna with a number of first-class features:
Hemisphere’s Atlas web portal empowers AtlasLink users to manage their Atlas-ready devices and enable functionality, including Atlas subscriptions for accuracies from meter to sub-decimeter level.
AtlasLink can be ordered now and will be available to ship before the end of the month. Private label OEM availability relationships will be announced in the next 30 to 60 days.
