CHC Navigation Releases i80 GNSS Receiver

Shanghai, China (December 10 2015) – CHC announces the availability of their new flagship GNSS receiver the i80. With the ability to compute a true Triple Frequency RTK tilted pole solution using all four worldwide and multiple regional constellations, the i80 receiver is the most advanced receiver available in the market today. The i80 GNSS receiver brings a futureproof sub-centimeter RTK solution to surveyors and contractors everywhere.

Without the need of a data collector or computer, the i80’s LCD GUI allows for common workflow operations, such as Static Logging, AutoBase, AutoRover, and UHF channel selection to be easily performed. The CHC i80 is the smallest receiver on the market incorporating dual hot-swappable batteries, allowing for days of uninterrupted work. While small and lightweight, it is packed with a full array of sensors and modules: multiple MEMS, Internal Tx/Rx UHF, multi-band cellular modem, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Serial, USB, etc. – having all these modules integrated into an ergonomic package, GNSS users will realize their most productive day yet.

“Over two years of R&D and testing went into the creation of our Linux OS i80 platform” said George Zhao, CEO of CHC. He continued: “This innovative design will allow us to add new functionality [with over the air updates] for years by combining the censors and modules in new ways – this is illustrated by our LCD supported work modes, and our MEMS enabled unleveled pole surveying added in the last couple months during product rollout. We are bringing GNSS in to a new era of productivity and ergonomics in a low-cost open platform allowing for unrestricted third-party integration via our i80 API.”
