Hemisphere GNSS Announces New Vector™ Eclipse™ H328 OEM Positioning and Heading Board

Scottsdale, AZ, USA – May 10, 2017 – Today, Hemisphere GNSS announces the Vector Eclipse H328, the next offering in a line of new and refreshed, low-power, high-precision, positioning and heading OEM (original equipment manufacturer) boards. The multi-frequency, multi-GNSS H328 is an all signals receiver board that includes Hemisphere’s new and innovative hardware platform and integrates Atlas® GNSS Global Correction Service.

Designed with this new hardware platform, the overall cost, size, weight, and power consumption of the H328 are reduced. It offers true scalability with centimeter-level accuracy in either single-frequency mode or full performance multi-frequency, multi-GNSS, Atlas-capable mode that supports fast RTK initialization times over long distances. The H328 offers fast accuracy heading of better than 0.17 degrees at 0.5 m antenna separation and aiding gyroscope and tilt sensors for temporary GNSS outages. The 60 mm x 100 mm module with 24-pin and 16-pin headers is a drop-in upgrade for existing designs using this industry standard form factor.

The latest technology platform enables simultaneous tracking of all satellite signals including GPS, GLONASS P-code, BeiDou, Galileo, and QZSS making it robust and reliable. The updated power management system efficiently governs the processor, memory, and ASIC making it ideal for multiple integration applications. The H328 offers flexible and reliable connectivity by supporting Serial, USB (On-The-Go with future firmware upgrade), CAN, Ethernet, and SPI for ease-of-use and integration. Optional output rates of up to 50 Hz are also supported.

Outstanding Capabilities

Powered by the Athena™ GNSS engine, the H328 provides best-in-class, centimeter-level RTK. Athena excels in virtually every environment where high-accuracy GNSS receivers can be used. Tested and proven, Athena’s performance with long baselines, in open-sky environments, under heavy canopy, and in geographic locations experiencing significant scintillation is nothing short of cutting edge. Together with SureFix™, Hemisphere’s advanced processor, the H328 delivers high-fidelity RTK quality information that results in guaranteed precision with virtually 100% reliability.

Advanced Technology Features

Integrated L-band adds support for Atlas GNSS global corrections for meter to sub decimeter-level accuracy while Tracer™ technology helps maintain position during correction signal outages. The H328 also uses Hemisphere’s aRTK™ technology, powered by Atlas. This feature allows the H328 to operate with RTK accuracies when RTK corrections fail. If the H328 is Atlas-subscribed, it will continue to operate at the subscribed service level until RTK is restored.

The H328 is ideal for robotics, autonomous vehicles, antenna pointing, marine survey, machine control, and any application where high-accuracy positioning and heading is required. Hemisphere will be showcasing the all-new Vector Eclipse H328 OEM positioning and heading board at AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2017 in Dallas, TX, USA until May 11 (booth #846).

About Hemisphere GNSS

Hemisphere GNSS is an innovative technology company that designs and manufactures high-precision positioning products and services for use in OEM/ODM, marine, machine control & guidance, agriculture, and L-band correction service markets. Hemisphere holds numerous patents and other intellectual property and sells globally with several leading product and technology brands including Athena™, Atlas®, Crescent®, Eclipse™, and Vector™ for high-precision applications.

FAA Issues Study on UAS Human Collision Hazards #UASIMPACT

April 28– What might happen if a drone hits a person on the ground? What’s the risk of serious injury?
Although the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) can’t yet definitively answer those questions, studies by a consortium of leading universities have made a start toward better understanding the risks of allowing small unmanned aircraft – or drones – to fly over people.

The consortium that conducted the research includes the University of Alabama-Huntsville; Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University; Mississippi State University; and the University of Kansas, through the Alliance for System Safety of UAS through Research Excellence (ASSURE). ASSURE represents 23 of the world’s leading research institutions and 100 leading industry and government partners. It began the research in September 2015.

The research team reviewed techniques used to assess blunt force trauma, penetration injuries and lacerations – the most significant threats to people on the ground. The team classified collision severity by identifying hazardous drone features, such as unprotected rotors.

The group also reviewed more than 300 publications from the automotive industry and consumer battery market, as well as toy standards and the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) database. Finally, the team conducted crash tests, dynamic modeling, and analyses related to kinetic energy, energy transfer, and crash dynamics.

When the studies were complete, personnel from NASA, the Department of Defense, FAA chief scientists, and other subject matter experts conducted a strenuous peer review of the findings.

The studies identified three dominant injury types applicable to small drones:

Blunt force trauma – the most significant contributor to fatalities Lacerations – blade guards required for flight over people Penetration injuries – difficult to apply consistently as a standard

The research showed multi-rotor drones fall more slowly than the same mass of metal due to higher drag on the drone. Unlike most drones, wood and metal debris do not deform and transfer most of their energy to whatever they hit. Also, the lithium batteries that power many small drones need a unique standard to ensure safety.

The team recommended continued research to refine the metrics developed. The team members suggested developing a simplified test method to characterize potential injury, and validating a proposed standard and models using potential injury severity test data.

The second phase of ASSURE’s research is set to begin in June 2017, and will examine the risks of collisions with aircraft.

The report on the ASSURE research and two video files are available here:http://pr.cirlot.com/faa-and-assure-announce-results-of-ground-collision-study/
