Veripos GNSS Mobile

Aberdeen-based Veripos, a supplier of GNSS positioning services to the world offshore industry, has extended its range of integrated mobile receiver units with introduction of a new multi-frequency system featuring GNSS heading, L-band positioning and wireless communication capabilities, the LD7.

Compatible with both GPS and Glonass networks, the 272-channel system includes an additional processor for onboard configuration and customized applications separate from its GNSS engine.  Integral wireless options include Bluetooth connectivity in addition to an optional full-band UHF radio modem for transmission and reception of RTCM or RTK corrections.

With 2GB internal memory and provision for remote Ethernet access, the LD7 also features an extended range of interface facilities for data output, timing and event marks in addition to a second antenna port for GNSS heading.

Commenting on the development, Veripos Executive Vice-President Richard Turner said that with its heading capability, the system is aimed at the company’s many survey customers, allowing them to derive an accurate heading and high-accuracy GPS and Glonass positioning from a single, easy to use receiver and so significantly reduce operational times and costs.
