NovAtel is the world’s leading supplier of Global Positioning Systems and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) OEM high precision positioning technology to the Unmanned Systems industry.
Our products are used in a wide variety of unmanned systems applications, from military and security to UAV and ground vehicle navigation. High-profile successes for the technology include the first ever unmanned airborne refueling test, DARPA’s first unmanned ground vehicle race and planning/testing for the Mars Rover expedition.
Our low-power GNSS receiver cards offer multi-constellation and multi-frequency tracking. A variety of hardware and software configurations are available, and software is upgradeable in the field.
The high-precision, high data rate OEM6 receiver boards offer scalable positioning, low latency and support for all current and upcoming GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou satellite signals.
The OEMStar is a low-cost single-frequency receiver with a small form factor (46×71 mm) and a low power consumption (< 500 mW). It features up to 14 channels of L1 GPS, GLONASS or combined GPS/GLONASS.

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

We provide a wide range of GPS and GNSS antennas for maximum position efficiency whatever your application.
HIGH PERFORMANCE GNSS ANTENNAS
Our GPS-700 series of GNSS antennas feature a highly stable phase center and excellent multipath rejection. Constructed with a compact form factor, these antennas provide a relatively lightweight yet high performance solution.
The GAJT Anti-Jam Antenna nullifies jamming devices that try to block GPS satellite signals. Battlefield-tested and easily installed into existing vehicle navigation systems, the GAJT ensures that your vehicles are always able to access their positional measurement capabilities.

FIXED REFERENCE GNSS ANTENNAS
Our fixed reference antennas are optimised for applications requiring a reference station, providing high levels of accuracy and availability. A choke ring reduces the effect of any unwanted reflected signals.
We supply Pinwheel GNSS antenna modules that can be easily and quickly integrated into OEM manufacturers’ own equipment. Capable of tracking GPS, GLONASS and L-Band, these high performance antennas are ideal for inclusion into any system requiring reliable, accurate tracking.

Our high-precision SMART antennas combine a GNSS receiver board and GNSS antenna in a compact enclosure.
The SMART6 features our OEM6 receiver and Pinwheel antenna integrated into a rugged enclosure. Capable of tracking GPS, GLONASS and SBAS, and with 120 channels and dual-frequency capability, the SMART6 delivers smooth positioning and exceptional accuracy.
The AG-Star is designed to meet or exceed MIL-STD-810G, making it ideal for harsh environmental applications. 14 channels are available for GPS and GLONASS tracking, and two channels can be configured for SBAS signals.
The SMART6-L features 120 channels and dual-frequency capability and is capable of tracking GPS, GLONASS and SBAS, as well as L-Band.
The NovAtel CORRECT solution is available on all our OEM6 and SPAN on OEM6 products. NovAtel CORRECT efficiently handles multiple tracking sources – whether from GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, L-Band or NTRIP – to give you decimeter-level or better positioning.
The Real Time Kinematics option is capable of providing centimeter-level positioning, delivering enhanced performance even in challenging environments.
