GPS Heading Systems

Vector PRO

The Vector PRO is a rugged “smart antenna” system that combines two GPS receivers and two multipath-resistant antennas into a single enclosure about a half-metre long. Using a sophisticated moving base station Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) technique, the Vector PRO provides heading information to within half-degree (0.5) accuracy - enough to replace traditional gyrocompasses for many applications at only a fraction of the cost.

The Vector PRO, besides providing accurate headings with GPS signals, also delivers sub-metre DGPS positioning accuracy when using decoded correction data. The Vector PRO is capable of receiving differentially corrected data from land-based Coast Guard beacon stations and from Space Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) such as the U.S. Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), the European GPS Navigation Overlay System (EGNOS), and Japan's MTSAT Satellite Augmentation System (MSAS).

Vector products are capable of outputting five differentially corrected GPS positions per second, and 10 heading information corrections per second. Vectors products also have integrated MEMS (micro electro mechanical systems) sensors to assist in the rapid, robust acquisition of GPS satellite signals. And during periods of differential signal outage, Vector products use CSI Wireless’ unique COAST™ technology that accurately predicts how errors change over time, and that results in accurate positioning for up to 40 minutes or more.
