Altus Positioning Systems to Debut New Versatile GNSS Receiver at Intergeo 2011 Print E-mail
Written by Altus Positioning Systems   
Monday, 26 September 2011

Torrance, Calif. – Sept. 26, 2011 – Altus Positioning Systems will debut its new APS-U GNSS receiver at this year’s INTERGEO conference and trade fair.

“The APS-U provides multi-frequency capability together with GNSS heading, L-Band positioning and wireless communications, all within a hardened housing that meets military environmental specifications,” said Neil Vancans, CEO and president, Altus Positioning Systems. “With its wide range of interfaces and 9-30V power input options, the APS-U is an ideal GNNSS solution for machine control, agriculture, aerial photogrammetry, heading sensors and military applications.”

For maximum flexibility, the design is scalable from a single stand-alone GNSS receiver to full options with heading, wireless links and RTK capability. The unit has an additional processor for on-board configuration and custom applications separate from the GNSS engine. It has an extensive suite of interfaces for data output, timing, event marks and a second antenna port for GNSS heading.

The 136-channel receiver is designed to use all GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO frequencies. Integrated wireless options include Bluetooth® for easy configuration, plus a GSM or CDMA cellular modem and UHF radio modem for transmission and reception of RTK corrections. It also works with WAAS, EGNOS and other satellite-based augmentation systems.

The new APS-U units incorporate Septentrio GNSS receiver engines.

The rugged APS-U meets MIL-STD-810G specifications for humidity, dust, shock and vibration, and operates under temperatures from -30 to +65 degrees C.

Altus expects to begin commercial deliveries of the APS-U in early 2012, according to Vancans.
