PPU Portable Pilot Unit

Small in size, big on features

The PPU systems by the company Ad Navigation, exclusively distributed by Prosertek USA, are surprising for their extremely small size and an accuracy hitherto unknown:

  • Bow/stern positioning and speeds: 1 cm.
  • Heading discrepancies lower than 0.01 degrees..
  • Lightweight and easy to carry: only 600 gr per sensor.
  • Totally wireless.
  • Easy to install: operational in seconds.


The complete system consists of 3 POD units, small, lightweight and hard-wearing, which communicate wirelessly with the electronic nautical chart system, enabling their easy transport and installation.

Wireless technology

The PPU obtains measurements using state-of-the-art GPS / GLONASS / BeiDou and Galileo Real Time Kinematic (RTK) techniques, together with ultra-precise RoT sensors. It also uses a UHF communication system between POD units to prevent signal loss due to interference.

Easy to install

Our PPUs can be carried in a backpack and are installed in seconds. With the 3 POD units and a notebook, and thanks to the wireless connection, it will all be up and running in moments.
