The AsteRx-m2a UAS is specifically designed for straightforward integration into UAS applications providing centimetre-level RTK positioning and accurate heading for just over 1 W. It features standard connections to Pixhawk and ArduPilot as well as event marker inputs to accurately time stamp camera shutter events.
No need for Ground Control Points
The AsteRx-m2a UAS works seamlessly with GeoTagZ software and its SDK library for PPK (Post Processed Kinematic) offline processing. This gives RTK accuracy without the need for either Ground Control Points or a real-time datalink.
- Multi-constellation, multi-frequency all-in-view satellite tracking
- Centimetre-level (RTK) position accuracy with or without a real-time datalink
- Heading output for orientation or INS integrations
- AIM+ anti-jamming and monitoring system + advanced GNSS+ toolkit
- Camera shutter synchronisation
- Plug compatible with ArduPilot/Pixhawk
Designed for UAS
The AsteRx-m2a UAS is designed for easy integration into any system. Standard connectors connect directly to your autopilot (e.g. Pixhawk) and the wide 6-30 V input power range allows powering the receiver directly from the UAS power bus. Event markers can accurately synchronise a camera shutter with GNSS time. The command interface is fully documented and an SDK is provided to help create professional custom applications.
Ultra-low power design
The AsteRx-m2a UAS provides RTK positioning at the lowest power consumption of any comparable device on the market. This means lower heat dissipation, simpler integrations and longer operation on a single battery charge.
AIM+ anti-jamming and RF spectrum monitoring system
All Septentrio high-precision GPS/GNSS receivers feature AIM+, the most advanced onboard radio frequency interference (RFI) monitoring and mitigation technology on the market. It can suppress the widest variety of interferers, from simple continuous narrowband signals to the most complex wideband and pulsed jammers. The built-in protection against intentional and unintentional jamming and spoofing uses a sophisticated system of sampling and mitigation mechanisms. The RF spectrum can be viewed in real-time in both time and frequency domains.
