Septentrio releases new GNSS receiver in partnership with Analog Devices


International GNSS positioning solutions company Septentrio has announced its new GNSS/INS receiver, AsteRx-I D UAS, in partnership with Analog Devices.

The company, which is headquartered in Belgium, said that the multi-frequency receiver, which the user attaches to the drone, combines reliable centimeter-level with 3D orientation, enabling automated navigation of aerial drones.

The lightweight design and low power consumption result in an extended battery life and flight time, while single and dual antenna versions are available.

While headquartered in Belgium, Septentrio works worldwide, with offices in LA, Shanghai, Seoul and Yokohama. Its products can be found on its website.
