Hemisphere GNSS offers Atlas-capable GNSS receiver for marine applications

March 14, 2018  - By

Hemisphere GNSS has introduced the Vector V1000 GNSS receiver for precision marine applications. The V1000 provides high-accuracy heading, position, pitch, roll and heave data.

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

The V1000 supports multi-frequency GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS and IRNSS (with future firmware upgrade and activation) for simultaneous satellite tracking. The receiver is powered by Hemisphere’s Athena real-time kinematic (RTK) engine and is Atlas L-band capable.

The new V1000 is designed for professional marine applications, such as hydrographic and bathymetric surveys, dredging, oil platform positioning, buoys and other applications that demand the highest level 3D positioning accuracies. Based on Hemisphere’s Eclipse Vector technology, the V1000 uses the most accurate differential corrections including RTK and Atlas L-band.

The V1000 is Hemisphere’s flagship receiver, with an integrated display, that can be conveniently installed near the operator. The two antennas can be installed at user-specified separation, providing valuable flexibility in terms of install locations and desired heading accuracy.

The V1000 has heading accuracy of better than 0.01 degree when using a 10-meter antenna separation. With CAN, serial, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Ethernet support and flexible installation, the all-new rugged enclosure gives the V1000 the advantage of working reliably in harsh environments, the company said.
