Compact GNSS Receiver for High Precision Land and Marine Applications

GNSS solutions pioneer, Hemisphere, has announced the release of its next-generation R620 GNSS receiver - a compact, versatile, and full-featured positioning system. The wide range of functionality and ease-of-use built into the R620 makes it an ideal fit for a variety of land and marine applications requiring high-precision positioning. The product was unveiled simultaneously at the INTERGEO Expo and Conference in Stuttgart, Germany and the ION GNSS+ Conference in Miami, FL, USA.

The R620 GNSS receiver is a complete refresh of the previous version, R330 and includes an all-new low-profile ruggedized enclosure. With the flexibility and scalability offered within the R620 system, customers can start with sub-meter positioning accuracy and upgrade the receiver (through activations and subscriptions) to add functionality and improve performance capability to centimeter-level accuracy.

Powered by the all-new Vega Series, the R620 GNSS receiver processes and supports over 1,100 channels and offers flexible and scalable simultaneous tracking of every modern and planned GNSS constellation and signal including GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou (including Phase 3), Galileo, QZSS, IRNSS, SBAS, and Atlas L-Band. The Vega series is powered by Hemisphere’s recently announced next-generation Lyra II digital ASIC, Aquila wideband RF ASIC, and Cygnus interference mitigation technology.

The R620 combines Hemisphere’s Athena GNSS engine and Atlas L-Band correction technologies with status LEDs and a powerful WebUI. These features make the receiver easy to monitor, configure, and offer an unparalleled level of customer-friendly performance. It comes equipped with UHF (400 MHz and 900 MHz) radio, cellular modem, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi, making wireless communications and connectivity easy to use. Ethernet (including Power over Ethernet), CAN, Serial, and USB also elevate the system’s capabilities.

With Athena GNSS engine, the R620 provides best-in-class, centimeter-level RTK. Athena excels in virtually every environment where high-accuracy GNSS receivers can be used. Tested and proven, Athena’s performance with long baselines, in open-sky environments, under heavy canopy, and in geographic locations experiencing significant scintillation is nothing short of cutting-edge.

The R620 GNSS receiver was featured by Hemisphere at INTERGEO in Stuttgart, Germany from September 17 through 19, 2019 and at ION GNSS+ in Miami, FL, USA from September 18 through 19, 2019.
