NovAtel Announces RELAY™ RTK Radio Module

NovAtel Inc. (NovAtel) today announced the launch of the Relay RTK radio module, a docking station that provides radio connectivity for its SMART6-L™ L-band capable GNSS receiver.

The Relay RTK module combined with NovAtel’s SMART6-L receiver creates a compact, easy to integrate positioning solution.  It is available in four radio versions:  400 MHz UHF licensed band; 900 MHz UHF unlicensed band; HSPA (3G) cellular; and CDMA (1xRTT/EV-DO) cellular.  The CDMA version is approved for use on the Verizon cellular network.

The 400 MHz and 900 MHz versions support both base and rover configurations.  The base station is easily configured via the integrated web-server/Wi-Fi access point using the web browser on any compatible personal computer, tablet or Smartphone.  The cellular radio versions support the reception of NTRIP and RTK corrections over the cellular network.

SMART6-L customers can connect to the Relay using their existing SMART6-L interface cables.  RELAY has support for both screw and magnetic mounting. Optional mounting plates are available for easy roof and pole mounting.  NovAtel’s SMART6-L with Relay provides the same level of performance as a standalone SMART6-L unit with the added convenience of radio connectivity to support RTK and NTRIP corrections.
