SMART7-S GNSS Smart Antenna

NovAtel SMART7-S GNSS Smart Antenna with SPAN

The NovAtel SMART7-S is a multi-frequency SMART Antenna that combines a VEXXIS antenna, an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and a NovAtel OEM7 receiver in a waterproof, durable enclosure.



The NovAtel SMART7-S enables access to multiple GNSS signals allowing for better satellite availability under variable environmental and terrain conditions. The SMART7-S also receives L-Band signals to access TerraStar’s global correction signals.

The SPAN technology tightly couples the inertial measurements with GNSS to improve position accuracy, bridge GNSS outages, provides attitude information and terrain compensation.

The SMART7-S provides a range of performance accuracies from full centimeter level RTK to dual-frequency GLIDE. TerraStar services, using globally transmitted satellite corrections, provide decimeter or centimeter level accuracy.

Users requiring wireless solutions for smartphones and tablets can use the SMART7-W Wi-Fi and an integrated NTRIP client to establish connectivity via cellular gateways and Wi-Fi. The SMART7-I model also features Ethernet that allows easy connectivity to wired IP devices and networks.

This rugged SMART7-S antenna is enclosed in a durable, waterproof enclosure that meets MIL-STD-810G environmental standards and will provide many years of reliable field use. Both screw and magnetic mounting is supported. The SMART7-S supports RS-232 and CAN-bus communications.

NovAtel ALIGN technology is optionally supported when combined with a second NovAtel receiver or SMART7-S to provide relative velocity and heading that can be used to guide accessory vehicles.
