Duro Specification and User Manual

Duro™ is a ruggedized, high-performance and low-cost GNSS receiver with Real Time Kinematics (RTK) technology for a centimeter-level positioning accuracy. GNSS multi-band and multi-constellation support enable Duro to offer fast RTK convergence times and high position availability.

Duro GNSS Receiver

Built to be tough, Duro is ideal for mining, agricultural, robotics, maritime and industrial outdoor applications. Duro is designed for integration into or mounting on top of existing equipment. With its cast aluminum housing, this easy-to-deploy GNSS sensor is protected against weather, moisture, vibration, dust, water immersion and the unexpected that can occur in long-term outdoor deployments.

Duro uses Piksi® Multi RTK GNSS receiver module. 

Integrated inertial measurement unit (IMU) and magnetometer enable sensor fusion techniques.
