Invicta 115, Invicta 210 and Invicta 310

Ravens DGPS receiver:

g

The New Invicta 115 receiver combines the high-performance of our differential correction dGPS receiver with a matched antenna all in ONE waterproof enclosure. The new hand-sized 115 Smart Antenna provides continuous measurements even in the harshest conditions. Its small size makes it easy and convenient to use in almost any application.

The Invicta 115 provides real-time, high accuracy navigation solutions by combining GPS and free corrections broadcast from Satellite Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) around the world. SBAS includes the Wide-Area Augmentation System (WAAS), the European Geo-Stationary Navigational System (EGNOS) and the MTSAT Satellite based Augmentation System (MSAS), covering most of the Asia and Pacific air space.

 

The Invicta 115 generates 10 solutions per second using standard GPS data messages (NMEA). High performance satellite tracking ensures position latencies on the order of 100 milliseconds...this means that the Invicta 115 tells you where you are, not where you were.

The Invicta 115 also has Raven's Ultra-Path feature which improves normal EGNOS performance and solves many of the problems associated with using SBAS for guidance applications without adding latency.

Invicta 210:

DGPS Receiver with Beacon and EGNOS Differential

 

 

 

 

 

Raven-GPS Invicta high-performance receivers are the key to acquiring successful position and navigation solutions. The Invicta DGPS receiver series provide real-time, sub meter (rms) accuracy with proven ruggedness and product reliability.

Raven’s Invicta 210L is the smallest and lightest GPS and DGPS radio beacon and WAAS receiver available. It’s performance is hard to beat as the 210L combines a high performance GPS receiver and a dual channel beacon receiver with superior impulse noise performance. Beacon signal selection is completely automatic or you may manually select the desired beacon signal. Plus it is compatible with the EGNOS System.
