Ashtech ADU800 at EOL/EOM [Read Product Bulletin]

The Ashtech ADU800, a 6D positioning system providing position + orientation. It a three antenna GNSS system employing “on-the-fly” integer ambiguity resolution techniques using carrier phase measurements from the three on board GNSS receivers to provide instantaneous 3D attitude information. In addition to the 3D attitude, the main GNSS board of the ADU800 is providing a 3D position up to centimeter-level accuracy in RTK mode.

Ashtech ADU800 at EOL/EOM [Read Product Bulletin]

Ashtech has raised the bar on GNSS attitude determination and real-time positioning with the ADU800, a 6D positioning system providing position + orientation for those who don’t need to simply position a point, but want to position a platform! 

The ADU800 is built on the strength of its predecessors, the Ashtech 3DF, ADU1, ADU2 and ADU5 and delivers unsurpassed accuracy in a rugged, full-function system. ADU800 provides precise heading, pitch and roll along with three-dimensional position up to centimeter-level of accuracy and velocities at a rate of up to 20 Hz for static and dynamic platforms, making it an ideal solution for a wide variety of airborne, marine and terrestrial applications.
