New quad-band receiver delivers ultra-precise position for demanding marine operations
Robust receiver provides simple configuration for rapid deployment12 May 2020
(Aberdeen, Scotland – 12 May 2020) Hexagon | VERIPOS announced today its next-generation GNSS receiver, the LD900, delivering exceptional functionality in demanding offshore environments requiring accurate and reliable positioning. The new marine-certified receiver is capable of tracking four GNSS frequencies simultaneously to ensure a precise position is always available at sea. When combined with Apex5 correction services from VERIPOS, it delivers accuracy levels as precise as 5 cm (95%) to provide robust positioning for the most challenging applications, including deepwater drilling, seismic, construction, and survey.
Capable of multi-constellation and multi-frequency (MCMF) GNSS tracking, the LD900 supports all VERIPOS correction services, which uses Precise Point Positioning (PPP) to deliver centimeter-level accuracy across the globe, making it ideal for oil and gas exploration activities. The LD900 receiver supports multi-channel L-Band tracking that provides simultaneous reception of services from three satellites broadcasting VERIPOS Apex5 corrections, which reduces the risk of satellite masking or blocking to ensure continuous operations and avoid vessel downtime.
“The LD900 builds upon decades of experience in satellite positioning as a technology leader in the offshore GNSS market by providing accurate, reliable and robust satellite positioning for a variety of demanding marine uses,” noted Dr. David Russell, Marine Segment Portfolio Manager, Hexagon’s Autonomy & Positioning division.
The LD900 is supported by a team of trained specialists that provide highly responsive support 24/7/365 to ensure customers have all the assistance they require, whenever they need it.
