PolaRx5 is a versatile and robust multi-frequency GNSS reference receiver. The unique design of its tracking provides measurements with the lowest noise on the market while constantly monitoring and protecting against interference, multipath and other environmental effects.
The PolaRx5 is developed specifically to support the most demanding applications for the earth science community offering a select range of advanced features which enable maximum accuracy and functionality. Powered by Septentrio’s next generation multi-frequency engine, the PolaRx5 offers 544 hardware channels for robust and high quality GNSS tracking.
Independent tests have shown the PolaRx5 to consistently rank highest among GNSS receivers in many areas of measurement quality, including fewest number of cycle slips and lowest power consumption well below 2W.
The IP68 compliant variant, the PolaRx5e is also available which comes complete with battery. The GNSS specifications of the PolaRx5 and PolaRx5e are identical. The physical specifications differ slightly and are documented in the PolaRx5 datasheet.

The GNSS+ toolkit - converting bad environments into good positioning
Septentrio’s field-proven Advanced Interference Mitigation (AIM+) technology enables the PolaRx5 to filter out both intentional and unintentional sources of radio interference, from narrowband signals over high powered pulsed signals to chirp jammers and Iridium interferers.
Septentrio’s patented Multipath Mitigation (APME+) technology – unique in eliminating short delay multipath without introduction of bias – guarantees superior measurement quality. If needed, the user has the ability to activate or deactivate APME+ to obtain completely unmodified measurements.
Mechanical vibrations or shocks caused by rough terrain can wreak havoc with satellite tracking. LOCK+ automatically adjusts the parameters of your receiver so you never lose position.
AIM+ anti-jamming and RF spectrum monitoring system
AIM+ offers built-in protection against intentional and unintentional jamming using a sophisticated system of sampling and mitigation mechanisms. Your high-precision GNSS / GPS receiver can automatically suppress the widest variety of interferers from simple continuous narrow-band signals to the more complex wide band and pulsed transmitters as well as lnmarsat and Iridium satellite transmissions.
Intuitive Web user interface
With your high-precision GPS reference receiver comes an intuitive web user interface for easy operation and monitoring allowing you to control the receiver from any mobile device or computer. The web interface also uses easy-to-read quality indicators ideal to monitor the receiver operation during the job at hand.
