Shenzhen,China June 1st, 2018 – Broadgnss, a leading innovator of GNSS receiver systems announced at the 9th China Satellite Navigation Conference a new high precision satellite position receiver with patented RAC（Real-time Array Calibration）technology.
It features positioning accuracy better than one meter (up to 10cm) by receiving only single frequency (GPS L1) satellite signals, the RAC technology in high precision satellite positioning frees the dependence on traditional augmentation network and significantly reduces the cost, which will enable high precision satellite positioning to enter large-scale applications.
Most consumer GPS accuracy devices are around 5-10m. To achieve the sub-meter level accuracy, you have to use the professional GNSS receivers that connect to ground based or satellite based augmentation systems like RTK (Real Time Kinematic) or PPP(Point Precision Position). The main problems for current high precision GPS are high costs and geographical limits. High precision GPS receivers can cost thousands, and the reference station for RTK network and communication network still have many blind spots on the Earth. In addition, satellite based PPP receivers also have the long initial start time issue. RAC receivers completely balance the performance and cost, overcoming the barriers of traditional high accuracy GNSS receivers. The cost is as low as only 1/10 of the traditional ones.
“RAC technology is one disruptive high precision GPS solution, as people pursue the more accurate GPS location, we think the cost shouldn’t be the barriers of scaling up, meanwhile RAC technology opens one door for high accuracy GPS research, which could be used in more space. Broadgnss is aimed to democratize the high accuracy GNSS service and will keep moving to this goal” said by Broadgnss CEO Yan Shen.
Broadgnss RAC receiver is is currently used by autonomous vehicles, drones, precision agriculture, robotics, and more.
Founded in 2014, Broadgnss Technologies Co., Ltd is the global leading innovator in high precision GNSS industry, with its exclusively patented RAC(Real-time Array Calibration) technology, Broadgnss realizes up to 10cm accuracy by only leveraging the single frequency of satellite signal, without relying on any augmentation network, which significantly reduces the high accuracy GNSS costs. Broadgnss strives to democratize the high-precision GNSS service, enabling users to enter the high accuracy position world. For more information, please visit: http://www.broadgnss.com/
