Positioning vulnerabilities are improved
Digital Yacht’s new TriNav GPS160 is a new, high performance positioning sensor using GPS, Glonass and the new Galileo satellite systems for positioning accuracies and redundancies.
The company says typical accuracy is better than 1m and data can be set to output at up to 18Hz for smoother plotter track displays.
TriNav software technology also improves positioning vulnerabilities that could occur through spoofing and local interference.
The device can be field programmed for a variety of modes such as single GNSS operation such as Galileo only as well as output configurations such as update rate or NMEA sentence structure.
The GPS160 is available with a NMEA 0183 output and a USB variant for PC, MAC and Linux. For NMEA 2000 systems, a bundle is available with a Digital Yacht iKonvert NMEA 2000 gateway.
The GPS160 also supports an external MOB switch or device. When activated, the product creates a ‘synthesised’ AIS SART MOB message on its NMEA output which can be interfaced with a local plotter for MOB identification.
Galileo is the new global navigation satellite system (GNSS) that has been developed over the past two decades. It joins the GPS and GLONASS systems and offers mariners a third reliable positioning source. It is planned to be fully operational in 2020.
