The Hemisphere GNSS Vector V123 smart antenna.

Hemisphere GNSS has released the new single-frequency, multi-GNSS Vector V123 and V133 all-in-one smart antennas with integrated Atlas L-band designed for professional and commercial marine applications.

The company made the announcement at the Oceanology International conference being held this week in London, U.K.

Powered by Hemisphere’s Crescent Vector technology, the new V123 and V133 are multi-GNSS compass systems using GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS for simultaneous satellite tracking to offer heading, position, heave, pitch and roll. Both antennas support NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000.

The V123 and V133 thrive in radar/ARPA, AIS, ECDIS, side-scan survey, multi- and single-beam surveys, dredging and general navigation applications.

The V123 and V133 rugged smart antennas combine Hemisphere’s recently announced Crescent Vector H220 OEM board and two superior multipath- and noise-rejecting antennas (spaced 50 centimeters  apart) in a single enclosure.

The smart antennas require only a single power/data cable connection for fast and reliable installations, even in the presence of strong radio transmissions. Both Vector models provide 0.3-degree heading accuracy and sub-meter DGPS accuracy, as well as optional 0.5-meter Atlas L-band accuracy.

The V133 includes all the features of the V123 and adds the capability of receiving differentially corrected data from land-based beacon stations. Ease of installation and no maintenance or servicing enhances the simplicity of these new Vector models.

“The Vector V123 and V133 GNSS compasses represent significant enhancements to our industry leading models they replace, providing even greater performance, improved robustness and excellent value,” said Miles Ware, director of marketing at Hemisphere GNSS. “Users now have an even higher performing all-in-one Vector for their commercial and professional needs with the addition of BeiDou, Galileo, and QZSS as well as Atlas L-band corrections.”
