GNSS Receiver Firmware Options

The innovative firmware solutions listed on this page have been designed to maximize the performance of your positioning technology, providing such functionality as relative heading/pointing between two receivers, enhanced pass-to-pass accuracy and more.

This firmware offers integrators a single source of hardware, corrections and support through NovAtel. This proprietary firmware resides on your receiver to enable decimetre-level positioning, anywhere, anytime, without having the complexities of setting up an RTK base station network.

Networking lines coming in and out of a chip demonstrating the way the API from NovAtel enables customization of your GNSS/GPS receiver through an application programming interface and developer’s kit.

API and Developer’s Kit

Our API includes a developer’s kit with documentation, tools and sample code to further customize your GNSS/GPS receivers from NovAtel.


Firmware that provides high precision attitude and accurate relative positioning information between two or more receivers in dynamic land, air and marine applications.


Smoothing algorithm for repeatable pass-to-pass accuracy.                                                                                                                                                                                                              


Network Transport of RTCM via Internet Protocol (NTRIP) is an application level protocol used to stream GNSS differential correction data over the Internet.


RAIM firmware provides receiver autonomous integrity monitoring for broadcast GNSS signals by detecting and excluding faulty signals.


STEADYLINE technology reduces position jumps that can occur when a GNSS receiver changes positioning modes.


Eliminates vertical wave motion from sonar data measurements in marine applications.
