Decimeter-level position accuracy, anywhere in the world, anytime.

NavComs SF-3050 family of integrated StarFire/RTK GNSS Receivers provides decimeter-level position accuracy, anywhere in the world, anytime.

Powered by the new Sapphire Engine, the SF-3050 provides 66 channel tracking, including multi-constellation support for GPS, GLONASS and Galileo. It also incorporates high-speed I/O components, including Ethernet, Bluetooth and USB capability.

Offering the freedom to choose, the SF-3050 is fully upgradeable allowing users to upgrade from a single frequency receiver to multi-frequency or anything in between with just a software bundle upload, saving users the expense of purchasing a new receiver. This flexible framework makes the SF-3050 ideal for any application.

Product Benefits

Performance Upgrade Path
The SF-3050 is designed with a robust and long-term performance upgrade path to meet changing application needs via software optioning alone. Increased functionality does not require the costly purchase of a new receiver. The SF-3050 software-enabled features, bundled or purchased individually, cover a wide variety of applications.

Over The Air StarFire Licensing
Over The Air StarFire Licensing is the easiest way to install a StarFire license. The installation of a purchased license is accomplished via radio broadcast. Over The Air StarFire Licensing is especially convenient for receivers in remote locations in the field.

GNSS Performance
Sapphire, the SF-3050s engine, is a 66 channel GNSS with the required flexibility to track all civilian GNSS and SBAS signals (GPS, GLONASS & Galileo) with integrated StarFire signal tracking. Sapphires industry leading receiver sensitivity provides more than 50% signal to noise ratio advantage over competing technologies. This results in improved real time positioning, proven through independent tests, when facing various multipath environments.

What you can do with the Navcon SF-3050High Precision
Coupled with our StarFireâ„¢ subscription service, the SF-3050 delivers 10 cm position fixes without the use of a secondary receiver. Add our RTK option and an external radio capable of receiving RTK corrections from a base station, and the SF-3050 is able to perform RTK-level surveys for unsurpassed accuracy. Onboard memory (2GB) and a geodetic-quality antenna enable millimeter-level accuracy from post-processing.

Applications

Because of the flexibility provided by the Sf-3050s performance upgrade path, each SF-3050 can be configured to suit your specific applications needs.
