Featuring the latest GNSS technology, mosaic TM-X5 brings centimeter-level positioning to technologies — the product was conceived to be the first GNSS receiver module on the market without performance compromises. Featuring complete multi-frequency multi-constellation technology mosaic TM receives every existing and future signal from all GNSS constellations including the American GPS, European Galileo, Russian GLONASS, Chinese BeiDou, Japanese QZSS, Indian NavIC and L-Band satellites. Such signal diversity allows maximum positioning availability even in difficult environments such as near tall structures or under foliage. mosaic TM-X5 delivers its positioning information at an industry-leading update rate, ideal for robots or fast-moving vehicles.

This compact GNSS module features Septentrio’s proprietary Advanced Interference Mitigation (AIM+) technology, which shields the receiver from jamming and malicious spoofing. This allows machinery and robotics equipped with GNSS to keep on working, instead of being grounded by RF interference. mosaic TM-X5 also includes the unique RAIM+ integrity engine essential for safety-critical applications such as autonomous systems.

Francois Freulon, Head of Product Management at Septentrio, indicated that for smooth, uninterrupted operation in the field, mosaic TM-X5 is the logical choice for an industrial-grade GNSS positioning module. In an industrial setting, the cost of equipment downtime can quickly get out of hand. The company designed mosaic TM to be robust in difficult environments, ensuring continuous operation as well as quick set-up times for customers.

For those who wish to try the mosaic TM-X5, evaluation kits can now be ordered directly at shop.septentrio.com.
