NovAtel GPStation-6 Enclosure
THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED BY THE MANUFACTURER AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. PLEASE CONTACT US ABOUT OTHER OPTIONS.
A high performance GNSS ionosphereic scintillation and TEC monitor (GISTM) receiver enclosure with low phase noise oscillator. The multi-frequency, multi-constellation GPStation-6 design is NovAtel’s next generation GNSS Ionospheric Scintillation and TEC Monitor (GISTM) receiver.
GPStation-6 GNSS Ionospheric Scintillation and TEC Monitor (GISTM) receiver is a multi-frequency, multi-constellation GPStation-6 design based on the mature GSV4004B GISTM receiver used in ionospheric monitoring networks and space weather applications around the world since 2004. By combining the proven GSV4004B receiver design with NovAtels latest 120 channel OEM628 GNSS measurement engine, the GPStation-6 offers a future proof modernization path for existing customers and a leading edge solution for new customers in this unique application space.
GPStation-6 is software upgradable in the field to provide the custom performance required for application demands. The receiver can track all present and upcoming GNSS constellations and satellite signals including GPS L1/L2/L2C/L5, SBAS L1/L5, GLONASS L1/L2, Galileo E1/E5a/E5b/AltBOC, QZSS L1/L2C/L5 and BeiDou signals and delivers high performance GNSS signal tracking together with ionospheric scintillation and TEC measurements.
A maximum sampling rate of 50 Hz generates high rate ionospheric scintillation measurements for each of the 120 available tracking channels. The receiver tracks and reports ionospheric scintillation and TEC measurements for all supported signal types. A 25 Hz raw signal intensity noise bandwidth and 25 Hz phase noise bandwidth ensures that all the spectral components of both amplitude and phase scintillations are measured.
CUSTOMIZABLE UTILITY SOFTWARE
The provided GPStation-6 software utilities support automated receiver configuration and control, log decoding, specialized post-processing algorithms and real-time data display. The GPStation-6 receiver software and utilities are based on the same software that the GSV4004B included, allowing for easy transition of existing work flows to the new GISTM platform.
