mosaic-H, Accurate Positioning and Heading in a Single Compact Module

The new mosaic-H dual antenna GPS/GNSS module opens the door to smaller-than-ever navigation and control solutions for automated machines and robots

Leuven, Belgium – November 2nd 2020 – Septentrio, a leader in high-precision GNSS* positioning solutions, expands its GNSS module portfolio with mosaic-H heading receiver. With dual antenna capabilities, this surface mount module delivers reliable heading & pitch or heading & roll information on top of centimeter-level positioning. mosaic-H is the new addition to Septentrio’s existing mosaic module family, which already includes high-performance RTK and timing modules as well as modules with integrated GNSS corrections. Having a single standard footprint across multiple specialized receiver modules enables integrators to create multiple application-specific products based on a single design.

“The mosaic GNSS receivers have set a new performance standard among high precision GNSS modules. Adding a second antenna input into the single form factor of mosaic demonstrates Septentrio’s leading position in the high-precision module market,” said Francois Freulon, Head of Product Management at Septentrio. “Thanks to its ultra-small dimensions and low power consumption, mosaic-H is the ideal navigation and control solution for robotics, UAVs and autonomous applications which require ultra-robust and secure positioning and heading.”

mosaic-H delivers orientation angles immediately from the start, helping initialize inertial systems which otherwise would require movement before they can measure 3D orientation. INS initialization with GNSS attitude from power-up allows machine trajectory path optimization and fully informed navigation of robotic systems immediately from mission start.

The mosaic-H receiver will be available for integrator testing and customer evaluation by end of December 2020. The full product production is expected by spring 2021. For more information about mosaic-H visit septentrio.com/mosaic-H or contact sales@septentrio.com.

* Global Navigation Satellite System including the American GPS, European Galileo, Russian GLONASS, Chinese BeiDou, Japan’s QZSS and India’s NavIC. These satellite constellations broadcast positioning information to receivers which use it to calculate their absolute position.
