Point One Navigation and Quectel Wireless Solutions today announced the LG69T-AM, the latest addition to the Quectel LG69T GNSS Module Series (Spec Sheet – PDF). Point One’s positioning engine powers the LG69T-AM and enables centimeter-level global accuracy by integrating augmented GNSS in an affordable yet easy to use module with open-source API.

The LG69T-AM GNSS module features STMicroelectronics’ TeseoV dual band L1/L5 positioning receiver platform with 80 tracking and 4 fast acquisition channels compatible with GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS and NAVIC. The LG69T-AM leverages Point One’s RTK and SSR technology for centimeter-level accuracy and ultra-fast convergence time. It is designed for easy integration with minimal e-BOM modification and is well-suited for mass market adoption without the need for an expensive external co-processor. Due to its small package size, light weight, and excellent power consumption, it is ideal for applications such as robotics and precision agriculture.

Embedded in the LG69T-AM is Point One’s FusionEngine and its Polaris correction service client. FusionEngine is compatible with standards-based corrections services including those based on RTCM. Polaris is Point One’s own GNSS correction service that unlocks better than 10cm absolute accuracy with a coast-to-coast footprint in the USA and coverage across Europe. It offers a variety of connectivity options including delivery over cellular and L-Band. The network is purpose-built for precision agriculture customers and includes advanced anti-jam, interference mitigation, end to end security and automatic integrity monitoring unmatched by any other provider.

“Quectel is excited to be working with Point One Navigation to deliver a high performance and easy-to-use precision GNSS solution,” said Mark Murray, Vice President of Sales for GNSS and Automotive at Quectel Wireless Solutions. “The LG69T-AM, together with Point One’s FusionEngine and Polaris, brings a truly game-changing solution to the market.”

“Point One’s full suite of offerings enable precise location for anything in the real world that moves. We’re thrilled to be working with Quectel and leveraging their deep experience in module design, support and integration. This joint offering will enable safer and more effective robotic systems for truly mass-market applications,” said Aaron Nathan, CEO and Co-founder, Point One Navigation.
