New GPS Receiver Available From Ashtech
Ashtech, Inc. has introduced the G12 receiver, a new OEM board intended for integration into a wide variety of high-accuracy marine, avionics and land navigation applications.
The Gl2 receiver is reportedly the first of its kind to offer 20 Hz update rates for position and raw data output.
The G12's all-in-view tracking, timing options and 40-cm differential accuracy reportedly make it ideal for all GPS applications requiring high-precision.
Designed to be fully upgradeable from its precursor — Ashtech's Sensor II — the G12 is manufactured to mechanical specifications compatible with the Sensor II. Ashtech will continue to produce the Sensor II along with the G12. The G12's incorporation of receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM), multipath mitigation and high dynamic capability help to ensure its integration into a broad assortment of GPS systems.
Ashtech is an ISO 9001-certified company, involved in telecommunications and in finding precision solutions for global positioning tasks through the use of Navstar satellites.
