Swift Navigation's Duro Ruggedized GNSS Receiver is a multi-band, multi-constellation GNSS receiver that is built to be tough. Designed for the outdoors, Duro’s centimeter-accurate positioning is ideal for autonomous agricultural applications. Duro provides highly-accurate RTK GPS in an IP67-rated, military-grade, cast aluminum enclosure designed to protect the GNSS sensor against weather, moisture, vibration, dust, water immersion and EMI exposure typical of long-duration, harsh outdoor deployments making it an ideal solution for heavy farm equipment.

In addition to its ruggedness, Duro is easy-to-deploy and is ready to connect right out of the box. Duro’s M12 connectors are sealed and industry standard, which balances ruggedization with user-friendliness. No external sealing is required to deploy in even the harshest conditions. The exposed interfaces support varied use cases without integration issues.

Leveraging the Piksi Multi RTK GNSS receiver in its design, Duro’s multiple signal bands enable fast convergence times to high-precision mode. Single band RTK systems converge in minutes, while Duro converges to a high-precision solution within seconds. This allows for much faster system start times, as well as faster reacquisition, critical to robotic systems.
