Accurate positioning and correction solutions for land, sea or air
Real-time awareness of position has become a critical requirement for growth areas such as autonomous vehicle navigation and precision farming. Hexagon’s Positioning Intelligence business helps customers improve positioning precision through the use of GNSS and solutions that enable them to pinpoint their positioning to a level measured in centimetres.
These integrated positioning solutions can be used on land, sea and in the air. GNSS receivers and antennas are supplied to the surveying, oil, construction, agriculture, defence and mining industries, delivering superior position accuracy and increased signal availability.
An integral part of Positioning Intelligence’s technology is the use of UAVs to collect data. Surveying can be done faster, easier, safer and more cost-effectively than before by using a UAV equipped with technology for collecting geo-referenced 3D data.
