NovAtel Announces OmniSTAR HP Receiver

On July 30, NovAtel Inc. announced its new ProPak-LB global positioning engine, the first engine to have access to OmniSTAR’s new High Performance satellite service. (See IDR, June, 2002, page 8, “OmniSTAR HP Getting 6-Inch Accuracy”)

The ProPak-LB, coupled with the GPS-600-LB antenna, delivers decimeter-level accuracy autonomously with the OmniSTAR HP service.

“This new technology gives the real time kinematic (RTK) user a fully portable system. This is ideal for applications like geographic information systems (GIS) data collection, precision agriculture and unmanned systems,” said Pat Fenton, chief technology officer (CTO) for NovAtel.
