NovAtel announces SMART-MR15 GNSS receiver/antenna with integrated cellular modem

The new SMART-MR15 receiver/antenna from NovAtel includes a built-in cellular modem that enables users to obtain RTK corrections via the Internet.


The SMART-MR15 integrates an L1/L2 GPS+GLONASS receiver, antenna and cellular modem into a single compact enclosure. It includes a rugged metal housing and external cellular antenna to help assure high performance even in poor coverage areas, according to 

Doug Schmuland, agriculture portfolio manager for NovAtel.

The receiver is available with either CDMA or GPRS/HSDPA modems for compatibility with major cellular communications systems. It also includes NTRIP client software necessary to utilize RTK corrections received via the Internet.

The MR15 includes NovAtel’s GL1DE algorithm, which smooths out positions obtained with non-RTK applications. Pricing for the MR15 has not been announced. For more information, visit
