Calian GNSS Ltd., a leading global manufacturer of GNSS antenna and RF solutions, and u-blox have signed a design partner agreement for the development of next generation PointPerfect PPP-RTK augmented smart antennas

The PointPerfect GNSS augmentation service is now available in North America, Europe and parts of Asia Pacific.

The agreement between the two companies will see both the u-blox ZED-F9R high-precision GNSS and the NEO-D9S L-Band receivers integrated with Calian’s industry-leading Accutenna technology. This integration together with u-blox PointPerfect augmentation service aims to provide excellent accuracy and precision. 

The multi-band (L1/L2 or L1/L5) architecture removes ionospheric errors, and the multi-stage enhanced XF filtering improves noise immunity while relying on the dual feed Calian Accutenna element to mitigate multi-path signal interference rejection. 

Some versions of the new smart antenna solutions include an inertial measurement unit (dead reckoning) and an integrated L-Band corrections receiver to ensure operation beyond terrestrial network reach.

Christopher Russell, Calian Vice President of Sales, said; “The TW5390 solution offers users high-precision with rapid convergence times, access to precise, reliable, and easy-to-use PointPerfect PPP-RTK GNSS augmentation data. The result is centimetre-level accuracy in seconds on a continental scale for exceptional precision. 

“Calian and u-blox bring a true out-of-the-box solution, removing the work of integrating best-in-breed antenna and receiver technologies, so our mutual customers can focus on their end applications.”

Christopher Russell, Calian Vice President of Sales, added; “Calian and u-blox offer a turnkey silicon-to-cloud solution since PointPerfect is already pre-integrated with u-blox ZED-F9R and NEO-D9S high precision GNSS modules. Our intuitive cloud platform provides a self-serve environment from which users have autonomy to manage IoT device fleets. 

“This eliminates complexities and allows users to engage more efficiently and reduce time-to-market. We look forward to working with Calian and bringing new combined smart antenna solutions to market, supporting our complementary customer base.”
