Raw GPS carrier phase measurements is a standard feature of the new AC12 OEM board from Magellan, a world leader in GPS+SBAS technology. Built on over a decade of experience developing OEM GPS solutions and an expertise in carrier phase technology, the AC12 provides precise carrier phase output.
Highly Accurate and Flexible
The carrier phase measurements provided by the AC12 deliver the high-accuracy and flexibility that has previously been considered cost-prohibitive in many solutions. This extremely accurate carrier phase data can be used for navigation and tracking, providing a clear advantage in a variety of applications. AC12 flexibility enables you to apply your choice of carrier smoothing algorithms to improve the pseudorange positioning accuracy and even perform carrier-phase differential positioning. The AC12 receiver is compatible with GrafNav software.
Innovative Satellite Tracking
The AC12 supports differential remote operation and is capable of tracking Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS –WAAS/EGNOS/MSAS) satellites to enable enhanced DGPS positioning free-of-charge. This next-generation design minimizes the impact of common mobile application challenges such as skyward obstructions and mitigates GPS signal multipath. Superior signal reacquisition techniques ensure position availability and reliability.
The Cost-Efficient Solution
For many applications such as agriculture, GIS, mapping and more, the AC12 provides high-performance GPS at a fraction of the cost of other premium alternatives. A field-proven design built on Magellan's world-class GPS engineering, the AC12 OEM board is also ideal for land and marine navigation, low-cost heading and attitude systems, deformation monitoring, asset and personnel tracking, relative navigation, automotive, military, and even golf course management. Delivering reliable, consistent positioning and raw data, including carrier phase measurements under the toughest conditions, the AC12 provides a package of standard features to answer most GPS OEM challenges.
