Our flexible GNSS front-end allows satellite signals to be received and stored using up to three channels.

In the security industry, maximum reliability and resilience against disruptions is essential, which requires continually monitoring and controlling all processes. One of the keys is the ability to track the whereabouts and movements of specific objects and to know if the position data for firefighters, security personnel, vehicles and other people and objects is reliable.

Typical applications include tracking emergency services (police, firefighters) and security units, monitoring critical infrastructures, first-aid and evacuation measures during events, autonomous robots deployed for security missions, healthcare and quality of life systems, anti-counterfeiting and airport apron surveillance.
