An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle is an aircraft without a human pilot on board – a drone. UAVs were primarily used by the military for reconnaissance missions but are now available to civilian industry with potential applications in many fields such as farming, search and rescue, pipeline surveillance, crowd control, scientific studies and even filming for television.  GNSS receivers are an essential part of the navigation system determining attitude, precise location and altitude and feeding this information back to the user or to internal systems allowing for hover stabilisation, geo-referencing and more.

Chronos offers two compact GNSS receivers and antennas from partner Septentrio that provide both the accuracy and robustness required while integrating and synchronising seamlessly with your navigation systems. The AsteRx-m UAS, specifically designed for the drone market, is an RTK–accurate GNSS receiver that provides high accuracy GNSS positioning with industry leading low power consumption. The AsteRx-m dual frequency, low power, GPS/GLONASS high precision receiver for geo-referencing operational data gathered by optical and other payloads in UAVs.  AsteRx-m also provides relative RTK positioning.
