Shanghai, China (December 10, 2015) – CHC Navigation announces the availability of their new flagship the i80 GNSS receiver, the i80 GNSS 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, UHF channel selection to be easily performed. The CHCNAV i80 GNSS receiver 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 an open platform allowing for unrestricted third-party integration via our i80 API.”
