Hemisphere GNSS, Inc. (Hemisphere) announces the all-new single-frequency, multi-GNSS
Vector™ V200 GNSS Compass smart antenna with integrated Atlas L-band designed for general
marine applications and markets.
Powered by Hemisphere’s Crescent® Vector technology, the Vector™ V200 GNSS Compass
is a multi-GNSS compass system
that utilizes GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and QZSS (with future firmware upgrade and
activation) for simultaneous satellite tracking to offer heading, position, heave, pitch, and roll
output. With support for NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000, integrating Atlas L-band corrections, and
continuing to offer ease of installation, the V200 packages and offers exceptional value and
performance. The V200 excels in providing accurate position and heading information to
autopilots, chart plotters, and other general marine navigation applications.
The all-in-one V200 GNSS compass combines Hemisphere’s Crescent Vector H220 OEM board, two
superior multipath and noise-rejecting antennas (spaced 20 cm apart), a multi-axis gyro, and tilt
sensors in a single easy-to-install and use enclosure. The V200 delivers 1.5 degree (or optional 0.75
degree) heading accuracy and Atlas L-band accuracies of 30 cm to 60 cm and offers
instantaneous sub-meter accuracy and DGPS-level accuracy.
Measuring only 35 cm in length, the V200 can be either pole or surface mounted and comes in
either 5- or 12-pin options that require only a single power/data cable connection for fast and
reliable installations, even in the presence of strong radio transmissions.
“The Vector V200 GNSS compass represents significant enhancements to our industry-leading
models it replaces, providing even greater performance, improved robustness, and excellent
value,” says Miles Ware, director of marketing at Hemisphere. “Users now have an even higher
performing all-in-one Vector for their marine applications with the addition of BeiDou, Galileo, and
QZSS as well as Atlas L-band corrections.”
