Maritime positioning product launched by Septentrio

Positioning technology company Septentrio has launched a new dedicated device for the maritime market called AsteRx-U Marine, featuring a range of positioning techniques and algorithms as well as interference mitigation technology to automatically counteract various kinds of ambient intentional and unintentional RF interference.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The unit features integrated UHF radio, Wi-Fi, USB, Bluetooth and cellular connectivity, and a spectrum analyser. All configurations can be done via the on-board web interface.

AsteRx-U Marine also incorporates built-in jamming detection and countermeasures, multi-path rejection and fast acquisition, with more than over 500 hardware channels to track all available constellations, including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and Beidou.

The system supports Veripos PPP augmentation services and includes extra anti-jamming technology to counter Iridium and Inmarsat-uplink interference, as well as an extra antenna connector for a dedicated L-band antenna to optimise L-band reception at high latitudes.

“We want to make it easy for our customers to use high accuracy positioning in their work. Using the integrated communication functionality in the compact and portable AsteRx-U, users won’t have to worry about adding their own modems or UHF radios to get access to corrections,” said Jan Leyssens, Septentrio product manager.

“The receiver web interface is available wirelessly on any mobile device. It was designed together with several of our key customers, resulting in an interface that is not only easy to use by field operators, but also provides many useful troubleshooting tools, such as the spectrum analyser, to solve problems in the field and minimise downtime.”{/mprestriction}
