New VERIPOS® Marine Certified V560™ Antenna for Offshore Marine Applications24 September 2019
VERIPOS, part of Hexagon’s Positioning Intelligence division, introduces the marine certified V560 antenna for offshore marine oil and gas applications. The V560 uses an enhanced interference rejection filter to allow tracking of GNSS signals, even in the presence of high-powered satellite communications (Satcom) transmitters. It is a key component of the system that operates with all VERIPOS receivers and services, maximizing customer flexibility. The multi-frequency and multi-constellation antenna also allows reception of all available Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals, and receives VERIPOS correction services delivering robust and reliable positioning.
The V560 antenna can track Minimum Shift Keying (MSK) Beacon signal transmissions, allowing differential corrections from the International Association of Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) network to be used. The rugged V560 antenna is enclosed in a durable, waterproof housing that meets IEC60945 specification for all offshore marine applications.
