Trimble introduced IonoGuard to mitigate ionospheric disruptions in positioning and navigation by minimizing performance impacts caused by scintillation or signal noise. The solution helps ensure uninterrupted and robust positioning data on every project, around the clock, Trimble said.

IonoGuard uses the latest developments in high-precision receiver hardware design and signal tracking to deliver improved positioning performance. It is designed to minimize the probability of a complete loss of GNSS signals, and to improve the quality of the signals’ accuracy and integrity.

The solution is available as a downloadable firmware update on Trimble GNSS receivers using Trimble’s ProPoint GNSS positioning engine.

Space weather, to include solar flares, are linked to ionospheric disruptions that can impact the performance of electronics.
