For maximum flexibility, the APS-U is scalable from a singlestand-alone GNSS receiver to full options with heading, wirelesslinks, precise point positioning and RTK capability. The unit hasan additional processor for on-board configuration and customapplications separate from the GNSS engine. It has an extensivesuite of interfaces for data output, timing, event marks and asecond antenna port for GNSS heading.
“The APS-U provides multi-frequency capability together withGNSS heading, L-Band positioning and wireless communications, allwithin a hardened housing that meets military environmentalspecifications,” said Neil Vancans, CEO and president, AltusPositioning Systems. “With its wide range of interfaces and9-30V power input options, the APS-U is an ideal GNSS solution forGIS data collection as well as machine control, agriculture, aerialphotogrammetry, heading sensors and military applications. It canalso be used in a variety of different formats, without headinginformation, in a robust receiver or base stationconfiguration.” The 136-channel receiver is designed to use all GPS, GLONASS andGALILEO frequencies. Integrated wireless options include Bluetooth ® for easy configuration, plus a GSM or CDMA cellular modem and UHFradio modem for transmission and reception of RTK corrections.
Italso works with WAAS, EGNOS and other satellite-based augmentationsystems. The rugged new APS-U units incorporate Septentrio GNSS receiverengines, and meet MIL-STD-810G specifications for humidity, dust,shock and vibration, and operates under temperatures from 30 tominus 65 degrees Celsius.
