America's Cup

Sailboat racing has always been a fast, exciting sport, but one that for the most part had been relegated to those participating, or for the few spectators close enough to shore to cheer and look on in person.

NovAtel's Interference Toolkit

Collecting an accurate GNSS signal is much akin to using a candle to send Morse code across a city during Christmas. The competing lights from varying sources would make it almost impossible to determine the message.

Reliable GNSS helps Renesas make the right first Impression

Renesas Electronics recently completed a successful demonstration of its SAE Level 4 autonomous vehicle in Tokyo, but not before the team at NovAtel used the Interference Toolkit to help identify and monitor potential interference issues.

Back in the Driver's Seat

Arrow Electronics developed a Semi-Autonomous Motorcar (SAM) for quadriplegic former racecar driver Sam Schmidt, who has been paralyzed and unable to use his arms and legs since a racing accident in 2000.

Precision at Sea

VERIPOS provides precise positioning for marine-based oil and gas operations. UTEC Survey has been using VERIPOS solutions to achieve precise, redundant and reliable vessel positioning for a variety of marine construction projects.

At Home on the Range

North Carolina native, Marcus Thigpen, is far more than an expert agronomist; he’s a turf technologist—and he’s on a quest to forever change the way golf course owners and superintendents manage greens, fairways, roughs and even bunkers.

University of Alberta Students Launch Space Weather Satellite

The AlbertaSat Experimental Albertan #1 (Ex-Alta 1) is now orbiting and operational above the Earth, measuring interactions between the solar wind and the Earth’s magnetosphere with help from a dual-frequency OEM615 GNSS receiver.

GAJT Put to the Test

The Canadian Army recently tested NovAtel®'s GAJT® in live-firing conditions on the 155 mm M777C1 Lightweight Towed Howitzer. GAJT protects GPS-based navigation and precise timing receivers from intentional jamming and accidental interference.
