Hemisphere GNSS Introduces Atlas Basic

Hemisphere's Atlas Basic offers instant global sub-meter positioning and is available as a free activation for all Atlas-capable hardware purchased before February 1, 2018.

At Agritechnica 2017, Hemisphere GNSS (hall 15, booth E10) announces the Atlas Basic service level for its Atlas GNSS Global Correction Service. Atlas Basic provides users of both single- and multi-frequency Atlas-capable hardware the ability to achieve SBAS-equivalent performance anywhere in the world where the Atlas correction service is available. Atlas Basic is a ground-breaking new feature that offers a proven accuracy of 30 cm (pass-to-pass 95%)* to 50 cm (absolute 95%)* and offers instantaneous sub-meter accuracy allowing for DGPS-level accuracy.

Hemisphere is currently offering Atlas Basic as an activation on all Atlas-capable single- and multi-frequency Hemisphere products purchased before February 1, 2018. Correction service users will no longer need subscriptions for Atlas Basic service levels at 50 cm (95%) accuracies.

Atlas is a flexible, scalable, and industry-leading GNSS-based global L-band correction service, providing robust performance and correction data for GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou, at market-leading prices. Delivering its correction signals via L-band satellites at accuracies ranging from meter to sub-decimeter levels, Atlas also leverages approximately 200 reference stations worldwide, providing coverage to virtually the entire globe.

“With the introduction of Atlas Basic, we are continuing to deliver market-leading technologies tailored to our customer’s needs but in a totally new and refreshed way,” states Randy Noland, Vice President of Global Sales & Business Development, Hemisphere GNSS. “It’s a game-changing service level that gives our customers an unprecedented price and performance entry point with the flexibility to scale and grow as their business expands.”
