Septentrio Smart Antenna is Essential for Connected Construction


Septentrio has announced the launch of a new smart antenna for machine automation and control in construction, agriculture and logistics. Enclosed in a ruggedized housing, it can handle high levels of shocks and vibrations and is ready for operation in harsh working environments.

Built on Septentrio’s long standing GNSS experience, this multi-frequency receiver delivers high-accuracy RTK positioning down to the centimeter level. Equipment manufacturers and system integrators can leverage a wide range of features, including INS (Inertial Navigation System) integration, dual antenna mode and 4G cellular communication.

“AntaRx combines the renowned positioning quality of Septentrio with a high-quality antenna, in a rugged and compact housing for simplified installation. The product targets industrial applications such as construction and mining, offering a high degree of robustness validated through extensive testing against industry standards,” stated Silviu Taujan, product manager at Septentrio.

“AntaRx is available in several configurations, either as a GNSS smart antenna or as a GNSS/INS smart antenna system, integrating an industry leading IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit).” 

Septentrio adds AntaRx to their established machine control GNSS receiver portfolio, with positioning solutions used by some of the largest construction companies in the world. This receiver technology integrates Septentrio’s GNSS+ algorithms, including advanced multipath mitigation, which allows uninterrupted operation in challenging conditions such as near high structures or machinery.

High update rate and low latency promote accurate plan execution during fast movement or rotation.
