click image to zoom NovAtel Inc., a leading supplier of OEM Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) components and subsystems announced its new AG-STAR GNSS antenna. This cost-effective L1 GPS+GLONASS receiver plus antenna system is housed in a single, low profile, rugged enclosure. Delivering smooth, consistent positioning at sub-metre accuracy, the AG-STAR is ideal for manual guidance and auto steer installations. AG-STAR is also available with an optional integrated Bluetooth radio to provide wireless connectivity.

Jason Hamilton, director of marketing at NovAtel stated, “Our single-frequency GLIDE firmware delivers the ultra-smooth positioning and high pass-to-pass accuracy required by manual guidance and auto-steer agriculture applications.” Hamilton added, “Developing this antenna with L1-only technology allows us to provide a reliable, robust antenna at a very attractive price point to our integrator customers.”

The design of the AG-STAR interface maximizes flexibility with two NMEA 0183 compatible RS-232 serial ports and a NMEA2000 compatible CAN port. One PPS output, an event mark input and three daylight readable status LEDs are also provided. Built-in magnets simplify mounting although fixed mounting options are also available. 

The AG-STAR is available for order starting Sept. 1, with product shipments commencing in late October.
