GPS & GNSS Sensors

With no moving parts and the ability to provide 24/7 automated monitoring data in extreme climates, GPS & GNSS sensors are an ideal choice for monitoring slopes and structures such as, open pit mines, dams, landslides and other hazards.

NavStar’s GeoExplorer platform can be used to measure three-dimensional displacements using an array of GPS/GNSS receivers either as a stand-alone monitoring solution or as part of a sophisticated integrated system including a wide variety of other monitoring equipment.

Hundreds of NavStar’s GPS/GNSS sensors have been deployed world-wide and these have been successful used on long-term projects in inhospitable environments. The experience we have gained has enabled us to develop both hardware and software that has been specifically designed to meet the demands of our customers. As a result, we provide reliable, functional systems which can be rapidly expanded and easily maintained by the end-user.

NavStar’s range of GPS/GNSS senors provide the following benefits to monitoring projects:

  • Accurate three-dimensional displacement and tilt measurements.
  • Line of sight not required.
  • Ultra-low power consumption.
  • No moving parts .
  • Automated 24/7 monitoring.
  • Rapid infield deployment.
  • Flexible communications options.
  • Proven reliability in extreme weather conditions.
  • Sensors purpose built for slope monitoring.
