Duro Rugged Multi RTK GNSS Receiver

Duro Rugged RTK GNSS Receiver

Duro is ruggedized sensor that uses Swift Navigation's Piksi Multi for long term deployment. This sensor offers an IP67 rating and can withstand exposure to any kind of weather without damage.



The Duro is a rugged, field upgradable and centimeter accurate version of the Piksi Multi RTK GNSS receiver. Developed through a partnership of Swift Navigation with Carnegie Robotics, this dual-frequency Real Time Kinematic (RTK) receiver is built for outdoor operations and autonomous vehicles.

Duro is best for robotics, precision agriculture, outdoor industrial, mapping, military and marine applications. It is designed to withstand moisture, extreme weather and vibration. It is also sand, dust and water resistant with an IP67 rating.

Its weatherproof design, in combination with the dual-frequency operations, centimeter accurate positioning and fast RTK convergence time (measured in seconds), makes it an ideal version of the Piksi multi GNSS receiver.

This receiver meets military standards, so it can be easily deployed, without any external covering. It is designed is such a way that it can be integrated into your existing equipment and is available at the most affordable price.
