NavCom Introduces Software Upgradeable GNSS OEM Board

NavCom Technology, a leading provider of advanced GNSS products, has introduced a multi-frequency GNSS OEM board, called the Onyx. The Onyx GNSS OEM Board is a fully upgradeable GNSS receiver, allowing the receiver to upgrade from free DGPS signal sources such as WAAS to increased accuracy services with integrated industry leading features StarFire with Rapid Recovery or RTK with RTK Extend through software optioning alone. The software enabled features are sold in convenient software bundles, but can also be purchased individually, to suit changing application needs.

Offering integrated StarFire /RTK GNSS capabilities, the Onyx features 255-channel tracking, including multi-constellation support for GPS, GLONASS, Beidou and Galileo. It also provides industry leading performance in GNSS receiver sensitivity and signal tracking as well as patented multi-path mitigation, interference rejection and anti-jamming capabilities.

Integrated StarFire is now simply activated via an Over-the-Air licensing system that sends a StarFire License via satellite directly to the StarFire capable receiver from NavCom’s StarFire operations center. StarFire, NavCom’s Global Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS), provides real-time global 5-centimeter accuracy without a base station.
