INF are now the Australian distributer for North SmaRTK and RTKITE GNSS RTK recievers.
 
The North SmaRTK GNSS RTK receiver is built on a highly adaptable modular platform, that allows to fit the receiver to any type of application. The same receiver can adjusted to fit exactly any type of solution and its internal operative system, the SmartOS, allows it to be used with any controlling software that can read standard GPS NMEA, so you can forget about the dreaded “drivers” and compatibility issues and focus on your work or design.

SmaRTK

The SmaRTK platform, along with the is being used by Vehicle, Aeronautic and Robotic industries worldwide, helping small and big companies to integrate advanced GNSS capabilities into their solutions. We also offer Hardware and Software customization for any type of customers, actually most of the SmaRTK users are custom made!

The modular SmaRTK platform gives you every option, so you can use the receiver exactly as you need. The mainframe includes a powerful on-board computer running the OS that is flexible to handle any configuration, including a choice between Single and Double GNSS receivers, receiving and broadcasting through UHF Radio-modems or cellular modem, RTK and PPK, and custom applications for your specific needs.

Available options:

  • GNSS Receiver: Triple (L1+L2+L5) Frequency
  • UHF Radio-modem: None, 2W Internal Rx & Tx, 35W External Tx
  • Operation Modes: RTK, PPK, NTRIP CORS, AutoCaster CORS, Serial CORS, and combined modes

 

Basic features:

  • Mainframe built with Industrial components (Callibrated at NOAA)
  • NTRIP/CORS Support
  • NTRIP/CORS Correction Broadcasting
  • AutoCaster Direct P2P Data link
  • 3G/4G Modem: Quad band, global coverage
  • 6400mAh Li-Ion batteries (more than 13h of continuous operation)
  • SmaRTK OS that can be custom-fit for your industry needs

Adjustable System Design

The North SmarRTK GNSS receiver integrates the most complete features into a single system for a wide range of surveying, mapping and positioning applications, activating only the systems and functions that are required for a certain application, so the investment is adjusted but is always ready to grow with you.
 
When needed, it integrates a built-in UHF radio modem with options for internal 2 Watt TX and powerful 5W external UHF data link for the most demanding job sites Also can be operated in combination with 3rd party Radio-modems with full compatibility.
 
The SmartOS Operating System is full of options, to control internally and graphically any settings, including the radio channels, operation mode, display intensity, battery life, real time position, accelerometer pitch calibration, and much more; but it’s prepared as well to grow and to add custom applications for special projects that require a tailored system.
 
With the internal mobile modem, the receiver can connect as a Rover directly to any CORS Base Station, networking server or work as well as a fully internet operated Base with the exclusive Auto-Caster system
 
The SMARTK operates natively with open protocols, such as NMEA, RTCM and Transparent, but is compatible with proprietary protocols such as CRM+, Pacific Crest, Trimtalk and Satel, to be able to work in combination with the hardware that is already on a job site, so its a truly open and flexible system, that can be controlled with North software such as the RTK Surveyor, GIS Surveyor, Depth Surveyor, but can also work with others, including Carlson SurvCE, TopView and Microsurvey FieldGenius, and many more that support the NMEA GPS format.
 

Accuracy Sample

Below you can see graphics of the total Horizontal Drift in RTK mode as well as the individual Nort-South, East-West and Height drifts. This test was made using the SmaRTK Double Frequency receiver on a single spot in Barcelona, on a roof, using the open CORS correction on a cloudy and slightly rainy day. The log has 25,000 lectures, about 7 hours, and the full NMEA can be downloaded for your analysis.
 

RTKITE GNSS RTK MODULE RECEIVER

The RTK Module that is Powerful and Simple to integrate into Industrial, Robotic, Agricultural and UAV applications. Unleash the power of millimetric accuracy at your hands. The RTKite GNSS RTK receiver is a one of its kind module that gives the power and accuracy of a full double frequency satellite positioning system on a single module that is simple to integrate into any kind of solution or device.

The RTKite includes the powerful North Stealth GNSS L1+L2 RTK module that along with its powerful processor and communication platform can work, out of the box, as an RTK Base or Rover with millimetric accuracy, or DGPS logging receiver for post processing RINEX, or simply as a standalone receiver for high accuracy navigation with precision using SBAS signals like EGNOS or WAAS.

North knows how difficult is to integrate an RTK GNSS receiver from scratch, and upon request from several developers and in collaboration with the European Space Agency, we worked alongside the teams of professional and home brewed UAV and industrial solutions to have the perfect open platform to obtain millimetric GPS, GLONAS, COMPASS and GALILEO positioning with minimal effort and with zero R+D. The North RTKite does everything for you, so you can focus on your work while leaving the positioning complexities to us. Also, you have lifetime support and customization if your solution demands it.
