Access to Advanced Technology Features
Hemisphere’s Atlas® is an innovative service that delivers correction signals via L-band satellites at scalable accuracies ranging from sub-meter to sub-decimeter levels. Leveraging more than 200 reference stations worldwide and L-band satellites distributing corrections, virtually all the earth’s landmass has coverage. Atlas support is available on all Hemisphere multi-frequency, multi-GNSS hardware.
RTK-level accuracy is in demand for machine-control applications such as stake-less grading and Atlas simulates RTK precision, making it a good fit for such applications. Often, repeatability is particularly critical. Unlike autonomous positioning via SBAS, the precision of RTK resists positioning “drift”. Customers who work in grading and excavation depend on the Atlas service for RTK-level accuracy where RTK positioning is otherwise difficult or impossible.
Atlas compliments third-party GNSS receivers by allowing them to use Atlas corrections with Hemisphere’s innovative BaseLink® capabilities. Also included, is Hemisphere’s aRTK™ technology. aRTK is an Atlas-based RTK augmentation system that provides RTK-level accuracy, availability, and reliability when RTK corrections fail.
