BlueStarGPS is the only product on the market to offer Both GPS & GNSS options in a rugged, light weight and low cost package. Our receiver is designed specifically for use with a variety of mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets, or notebook computers. BlueStarGPS incorporates rock-solid, wireless Bluetooth® technology that works seamlessly with Android mobile devices. BlueStarGPS was designed specifically with sub-meter mapping and data collection in mind. It squeezes more accuracy from SBAS corrections than any other receiver in the world with it's depth of capabilities, including 3-channel, parallel tracking WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, GAGAN & SBAS. With it's patented technology, you can use BlueStarGPS under trees, around buildings and in rugged terrain where other receivers will fail to deliver.
The BlueStarGPS receiver provides unprecedented flexibility, complete with Bluetooth ™ technology allowing the user to build field mapping solutions around specific business rules and offers the freedom to choose their own mobile solutions and even locating devices. The built in Bluetooth™ capabilities provide interoperability between the BlueStarGPS and other devices with a connectivity range of up to 1KM. BlueStarGPS provides business partnerships with several major manufactures of rugged mobile devices and cable & pipe locating tools.
The BlueStarGPS receiver with Bluetooth means users are now freed from the constraints and costs of all in one GPS systems. For the first time, users can build their own GPS data collection system based on their specific needs, business requirements and budget. Our flexible modular GPS allows you to adapt to rapidly changing technologies. Computing technology, including data management systems, GIS as well as desktop and mobile devices, evolve rapidly. On the processor side, modern Mobile devices now offer gigabytes of memory instead of just megabytes. These rapid changes often result in new software no longer supporting older operating systems and users can be stuck with obsolete technologies and tens of thousands of dollars invested. With BlueStarGPS modular design, proprietary all-in-one field data collection systems and post-processing are now obsolete.
The BlueStarGPS receiver is designed to use Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) signals to it's fullest potential, as the only needed source of differential correction to achieve accuracy for all-day DGPS operations. The BlueStarGPS, through it's proprietary processes and algorithms, anticipates and predicts how the ionospheric conditions, GPS clock and ephemxeris evolve with time. This proprietary technology eliminates the need for post-processing.
Unlike other systems, the BlueStarGPS is also able to maintain sub-meter accuracy for up to 40 minutes after the loss of a differential correction source signal. BlueStarGPS not only offers two dedicated, high sensitivity, SBAS channels but also uses these geostationary SBAS satellites for ranging in the position computation. SBAS signals are the same nature/frequency range as GPS signals, so you can think of it as extra GPS satellites. The problem with other GPS systems is that when there is no differential correction signal, there can be no DGPS. The strength of the BlueStarGPS is not only sub-meter precision without post-processing, but its ability to maintain DGPS positioning when the SBAS signal is obstructed.
SBAS signals are the same nature/frequency range as GPS signals, so you can think of it as extra GPS satellites. The problem with other GPS systems is that when there is no differential correction signal, there can be no DGPS. The integrity that SBAS offers is higher than any other source of differential correction in the world. Understanding that field operations will depend on sub-meter precision, BlueStarGPS is engineered to obtain 60cm accuracy using free WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, and compatible SBAS signals. Best of all, 60cm accuracy is specified in 2dRMS, which means 95% confidence. Our precision is the result of the unique ability to further extrapolate the received ionospheric map, thus expanding the coverage area of an SBAS constellation.
