Trimble Introduces Ashtech 6D GNSS Sensor to Provide Real-Time, Instantaneous Dynamic Positioning

The ADU800 provides precise heading, pitch and roll with 3D positioning up to centimeter-level accuracy and velocities at a rate of up to 20 Hz for static and dynamic platforms. The ADU800 is a solution for a wide variety of airborne, marine and terrestrial applications.

The ADU800 from Ashtech is a three antenna GNSS solution utilizing “on-the-fly” integer ambiguity resolution techniques with carrier phase measurements from the three on-board GNSS receivers to provide instantaneous 3D attitude information.

“Customers demand high performance, reliability and support for their positioning solutions,” said Olivier Casabianca, Trimble’s portfolio manager for Ashtech OEM products. “The ADU800’s interoperability with existing equipment and greater functionality can allow system integrators to rapidly integrate and cost-effectively deploy the ADU800 in their products and solutions.”

The ADU800 is housed in a small, weatherproof, lightweight, rugged enclosure, and is built using the GPS/GLONASS/SBAS MB100 and MB800 boards. Embedded Z-Blade™ signal processing technology provides powerful performance and uses multiple GNSS constellations. The ADU800 can be operated in harsh environments while requiring minimal space for its installation.

The ADU800 is built on the strength of its predecessors, the Ashtech 3DF, ADU1, ADU2 and ADU5 and delivers unsurpassed accuracy in a rugged, full-function system.
