Septentrio launches the AsteRx SB, a compact and ruggedized GNSS receiver

Leuven, Belgium – 19 April 2018 – Leading GNSS receiver manufacturer Septentrio is delighted to announce the arrival of its AsteRx SB which will be showcased from the 23 April at Expomin in Santiago, Chile and Intermat in Paris, France.

The AsteRx SB delivers Septentrio’s ground-breaking quad-constellation RTK in a low-power, IP68 compliant housing. Built around the hugely successful AsteRx-m2 GNSS receiver engine, the AsteRx SB features WiFi, Bluetooth, USB, Ethernet and serial connectivity. Septentrio’s GNSS+ suite of positioning algorithms converts difficult environments into good positioning: LOCK+ technology to maintain tracking during heavy vibration, APME+ to combat multipath and IONO+ technology to ensure position accuracy during periods of elevated ionospheric activity.    

The AsteRx SB also features AIM+ interference mitigation and monitoring system which can suppress the widest variety of interferers, from simple continuous narrowband signals to the most complex wideband and pulsed jammers.
