About Positioning

Satellite based positioning provides the world's most precise location information. It is possible to acquire positioning anywhere in the world that GNSS satellite signals are available, any time of day, at data rates up to 100 Hz. Measurements can be generated in real time or processed post-mission to achieve the highest level of accuracy.



GNSS technology is most frequently used to:

  • Determine the location of an object on or with respect to the Earth for navigation
  • Locate an object with respect to another object for tracking purposes

Positioning information typically provided includes a horizontal domain (latitude/longitude or easting/northing) and a vertical domain (height).

GNSS position solutions are available in a wide range of accuracies. While the application of this technology is limitless, key applications include:

Location determination applications

  • Surveying
  • Vehicle/airplane/boat/human tracking
  • Sport applications

Guidance applications

  • Agriculture equipment operation
  • Unmanned airbornne vehicles, unmanned ground vehicles
  • Automated airplane landing




  • Real time and post-mission processed solutions
  • Standalone and relative positioning options
  • Positioning output available in numerous formats
  • Different reference frames provided
