CALGARY, Alberta — NovAtel launched its OEM7 7.200 version firmware. The update introduces new positioning functionality including an industry first Interference ToolkitT (ITK). The ITK allows users to detect and mitigate intentional interference such as the adversarial jamming of GNSS signals, as well as the unintentional interference from external sources. 

The new RTK ASSISTT corrections service assures continued high accuracy positioning when signals from an RTK network are unavailable or disrupted.

With the ITK, NovAtel's OEM7T customers can now auto-detect and report in-band Radio Frequency (RF) interference so that any interference adversely
affecting their receiver's positioning performance can be quickly nullified. In combination with the 7.200 firmware launch, NovAtel is introducing
NovAtel CONNECT 2.0, the latest version of our PC-based Graphical User Interface (GUI). 

Running on Microsoft Windows 10, NovAtel CONNECT 2.0 offers significant user enhancements including features to optimize ITK functionality. 

Firmware version 7.200 expands NovAtel's proprietary correction service capabilities with the introduction of two new subscription-based offerings:

  • TerraStar-L 40 centimetre correction service. This Precise Point Positioning (PPP) correction service delivers 40 cm-level positioning performance at an entry-level price point, anywhere on earth without the need for a base station. With corrections derived from the fully redundant TerraStar network infrastructure, this new service is for broad accuracy positioning applications such as agriculture, construction or GIS
  •  RTK ASSISTT correction bridging service. This globally available service allows users to maintain RTK-level accuracy when RTK corrections are disrupted. RTK ASSIST uses multiple geostationary satellites to beam corrections directly to the receiver to bridge outages that can occur with local RTK networks.
