NovAtel Inertial Explorer software

NovAtel has announced the release of version 8.80 of its Waypoint post-processing software portfolio, which consists of Inertial Explorer, GrafNav/GrafNet and Inertial Explorer Xpress. Waypoint software post-processes GNSS data gathered during survey missions performed by UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and other manned and unmanned vehicles, in order to increase accuracy.

All Waypoint customers with an active subscription that are within their support period qualify for this upgrade at no additional charge.

Waypoint version 8.80 provides the following key upgrades:

  • Optional access to TerraStar-NRT that provides high-rate precise satellite orbit and clock corrections for GPS, Galileo, BeiDou, GLONASS and QZSS system within minutes, which negates long data waiting periods and allows for quicker work flows
  • The ability to choose between L1/L2 or L1/L5 frequencies in differential solutions
  • Increased accuracy for pedestrian and vehicle applications by applying pedestrian and ground vehicle constraints
  • 14% faster processing with 64-bit support
