Hemisphere Vega 34 GNSS Compass Board

Hemisphere Vega 34 GNSS Compass Board

The Vega 32 GNSS compass board from Hemisphere GNSS is an advanced GNSS positioning and heading board that can be used in sophisticated applications such as machine control and navigation



With Vega 34, heading and positioning are scalable and field upgradeable with all Hemisphere software and service options. Utilize the same multi-constellation GNSS solutions in either single-frequency mode or employ the full performance and fast RTK initialization
times over long distances with multi-frequency signals. High accuracy L-band positioning from meter to sub-decimeter levels is available via the Atlas correction service.

The Vega 34 uses dual antenna ports to create a series of additional capabilities including fast, high-accuracy heading over short baselines, RTK positioning, onboard Atlas L band, RTK-enabled heave, low-power consumption, and precise timing.

Leverage the industry standard form factor for easy upgradeability from other manufacturers’ modules.


  • Extremely accurate heading with long baselines
  • Available multi-frequency position, dual-frequency heading supporting GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS, IRNSS, and L band (Atlas®)
  • Atlas® L band capable to 4 cm RMS
  • Athena™ GNSS engine providing best-in-class RTK performance
  • Excellent coasting performance
  • 5 cm RMS RTK-enabled heave accuracy
  • Strong multipath mitigation and interference rejection
  • New multi-axis gyro and tilt sensor for reliable coverage during short GNSS outages
