“mRo – a team of pioneers and designers of drone technology; combining analytical meticulousness with curiosity, boundless imagination, and the desire to solve some of the hardest challenges for the continuum sophistication of everyone”
Background/History of the product:
The mRo ZED-F9 GPS is a high-performance device capable of using all constellations simultaneously, the more precise L2 band and RTK, resulting in the most precise GPS available today. Some say this unit has a single centimeter precision.
ZED-F9 GPS from mRo also features a sophisticated proprietary RF stage, which delivers high gain and high noise immunity compared to passive antennas, yet, using less space & weight than most active antennas counterparts and eliminating signals loss caused by u.Fl/SMA antenna connectors and long cables.
