GPS/GLONASS RTK Receiver Module

The Ashtech MB100 GNSS board has been developed for applications when power consumption, size and dependable performances such as raw data quality, real-time positioning (SBAS up to RTK) or GNSS heading + pitch/roll determination are critical. The MB100 is designed to address L1 GPS+SBAS applications - including heading + pitch/roll determination. Ashtech’s Z-Blade Technology and dual-frequency GPS configuration offerlong-range RTK performance, while single-frequency GPS + GLONASS configuration provides more satellites in view for demanding environments. Embedded Z-Blade GNSS centric technology uses all available GNSS signals equally, without any constellation preference, to deliver fast and stable solutions. The MB100 works as... (read more)

SBG Products Supported by Software Suppliers

The Ekinox Series (surface and subsea sensors) by SBG Systems (France) is supported by Hypack and QPS hydrographic software. The Ellipse Series of miniature inertial sensors is supported too as it shares the same protocol as the Ekinox. Additionaly, the sbgCenter now delivers a CARIS-compatible export format. HYPACK has recently completed HYPACK and HYSWEEP device drivers for the SBG Systems Ekinox Inertial Navigation Systems. Ethernet and Series connection is available and all parameters are supported: roll, pitch, heading, position, heave, delayed heave, UTC, etc. The Ekinox Series and Subsea Series and the new Ellipse Series are totally supported by the...

Automatic Patch Test and Side-Scan Mosaic Tools in NaviModel 3.3

Version 3.3 of the EIVA NaviModel software solution has been released, offering both improved as well as new features, including an automatic patch test module and side-scan mosaic tools. NaviModel version 3.3 allows for 3D, and thus more precise, patch testing, as opposed to previous versions that were based on profile scans. Also, users can create a custom display of the patch testing data, including graph selection. Side-scan mosaic has been a well-known component in other EIVA NaviSuite products for a while, and it is now also included in NaviModel. The mosaic tool encompasses multi-beam snippets, backscatter data and side-scan... (read more)

New Ball Joint Monitoring System

Nautronix delivered the first of a new system to its customer GlobalSantaFe for its vessel, Glomar Arctic III. The new Ball Joint Monitoring system integrates data from the Nautronix USBL positioning systems, in this case a RS914, and vessel data to provide a complete monitoring system. The system meets requirements put on GlobalSantaFe by their customer to provide continuous monitoring, logging and alarm capabilities for the lower ball joint, and related vessel data. The system also reads vessel pitch, roll and heave information, all of which is displayed and logged. The system also provides full monitoring capability and to view... (read more)
