The NovAtel SPAN CPT7 is a compact dual antenna enclosure that delivers 3D attitude, velocity and position.

Manufacturer: NovAtel GPS



The NovAtel SPAN CPT7 is an Inertial Navigation System (INS) receiver and a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) in a single enclosure. Powered by NovAtel’s OEM7 technology, it delivers up to centimeter-level accuracy. The ultra-compact, lightweight design offers a low power solution with easy integration on multiple platforms offered through multiple communication interfaces.

SPAN technology (Synchronous Position, Attitude and Navigation) combines two different but complementary technologies: Inertial Navigation and GNSS positioning. The extreme accuracy of GNSS positioning is tightly coupled to the stability of Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) gyro and accelerometer measurements to provide a 3D navigation solution that is continuously available and stable, even through times when satellite signals are not available.

The SPAN CPT7 contains a high performance Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) to deliver NovAtel’s world-class SPAN technology in an integrated product. SPAN technology tightly couples GNSS positioning and the stability of IMU gyro and accelerometer measurements to deliver the most satellite observations and the most accurate continuous solution possible.
