A collaboration with Sapcorda and Septentrio will initiate an innovative no-hassle corrections solutions into a new line of high-precision Septentrio GNSS* positioning solutions products for the high-accuracy industrial market. This commercial agreement with Sapcorda uses their expertise as a global provider of sub-decimeter GNSS corrections.
For over two decades Septentrio has been designing GPS/GNSS receivers for demanding applications that rely on external corrections to reach high accuracy in the sub-decimeter range. In anticipation of the collaboration with Sapcorda, Septentrio will pioneer a new line of products for the high-accuracy industrial market.
These new products will consist of Sapcorda’s SAPA Premium corrections integrated directly into Septentrio’s latest GNSS receiver technology. The result is sub-decimeter accuracy, which is available to users right out of the box. This significantly simplifies the user’s GNSS receiver set-up process and eliminates the inconvenience of corrections service subscription and maintenance. Such GNSS receivers acquire corrections via internet as well as via satellite broadcast and deliver reliable, broadly available sub-decimeter positioning to high-volume industrial applications.
Jan van Hees, Business Development Director at Septentrio said that this collaboration allows both companies to bring innovative solutions, inspired by the growing market of autonomous vehicles and robots, to the high-accuracy industrial markets. By integrating Sapcorda’s SAPA service into their products, they are completely removing the hassle of managing corrections for the customers. This means faster set-up times and worry-free, always-on high accuracy positioning throughout the whole receiver lifetime.
Botho Graf zu Eulenburg, CEO at Sapcorda added that at Sapcorda their focus is on providing a high-accuracy service suitable for demanding applications where both performance and safety is critical. This includes land robots, UAVs, logistic applications and autonomous vehicles. Septentrio’s field-proven high precision GNSS receivers and their focus on reliability and robustness aligns perfectly with their mission and the capabilities of their SAPA services.
Sapcorda was established in 2017 to provide an open approach to a safe, broadly available and scalable corrections service. By adding Sapcorda’s SAPA service to its corrections portfolio, Septentrio begins offering sub-decimeter accuracy with quick convergence time anywhere in the U.S. and Europe. This broadens the range of Septentrio’s existing GNSS solutions allowing the company to serve a wide range of customers with various requirements in terms of accuracy, operation location and scalability.
