SPAN® GNSS INERTIAL SYSTEMS

SPAN® systems combine GNSS positioning with an Inertial Navigation System. The two technologies together create a powerful system that compensates for the inherent weaknesses when just one system is utilized. Our systems deliver continuous reliable position, velocity and attitude data even during short periods of signal unavailability.

SPAN RECEIVERS

We provide GNSS/INS SPAN receivers at card level as well as fully enclosed ruggedized modules.

GPS & GNSS ANTENNAS

We provide a wide range of GPS and GNSS antennas for maximum position efficiency whatever your application.

VEXXISTM SERIES ANTENNAS

The VEXXIS series of GNSS antennas feature a multi-point feeding network using patented phase reversal technology, which provides symmetric radiation patterns across all frequencies. This translates into excellent multipath rejection, and very small phase center variation and offset to generate better carrier phase measurements at the receiver.
