TAG Successfully Integrates RTK with a SAASM GPS Receiver
TAG has completed its integration work that successfully brought together an ITT Exelis SAASM GPS receiver, RTK algorithms, and an RTK radio into a compact GPS controller device.
This highly-integrated core technology is already built for kinematic applications, for example, a relative moving baseline, and can be easily customized to fit a wide range of other military applications such as machine control, robotics, and unmanned vehicles, without the need for a commercial RTK GPS receiver. Thus the user can be assured of full military system performance during all operational phases. The single receiver architecture minimizes size, weight, power, and cost.
If required, the TAG solution could be quickly modified to provide a form, fit, and function replacement for existing commercial receivers, including electrical and data interfaces.
“We are proud that our solution enables AGC and other military customers to have access to centimeter-level accurate positioning while simultaneously enjoying the benefits of a fully-certified SAASM-based embedded GPS receiver,” said Jim McEwan, TAG’s CEO. “It will deliver full, uncompromising performance at all times without relying upon any commercial receiver technology.”
TAG is now accepting orders from authorized customers. Typical customization efforts can be delivered within 90-120 days.
