Designed With Performance And The Future In Mind

The OEM617 tracks all current GNSS constellations including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS. It features configurable channels to optimize satellite availability in any condition, no matter how challenging. The OEM617 is software upgradable to track future signals as they become available. Maximizing satellite availability and optimizing GNSS signal usage now, and in the future, ensures consistent, high performance GNSS positioning.

Designed for Flexibility

Products Industries Solutions Technology in Action Support About Us Where to. Buy careers dealer access feedback. Live Chat The modular nature of NovAtel’s OEM6® firmware gives users the flexibility to configure the OEM617 for their unique application needs. The OEM617 is scalable to offer sub-metre to centimetre-level positioning, and is field upgradable to all OEM6 family software options. Options include NovAtel CORRECT™ with RTK for centimetre‑level real‑time positioning, ALIGN® for precise heading and relative positioning, GLIDE™ for decimetre-level pass-to-pass accuracy, SPAN for continuous 3D position, velocity and attitude and RAIM for increased GNSS pseudorange integrity.

Customization with an API

Application Programming Interface (API) functionality is available on the OEM617. Using a recommended compiler with the API library, an application can be developed in a standard C/C++ environment to run directly on the receiver platform, eliminating system hardware, reducing development time and resulting in a faster time to market.
