Telit announces dual GPS Glonass module

Telit of Italy just announced a new dual mode module that listens to both GPS and GLONASS satellites. As you may know GLONASS is Russia’s alternative to US’s GPS constellation. The new module is called Jupiter SL869 and it can track up to 22 satellites as opposed to six or eight which is the norm for standard GPS. Some features SL869:

  • reduces the delay from several minutes to seconds for a navigation
  • reduces the incidence of lost satellite coverage by enabling additional satellite fixes that reduces blind spots
  • features “automatic jamming immunity,” automatically blocking up to eight radio frequency interferers
