Flight safety, efficiency and reliability in operations are among the priorities of the entire aviation industry and operators. Safran’s Aerospace initiatives provide military and commercial aviation positioning, navigation and timing (Position, Navigation, and Timing: PNT and map data combine to create the GPS service.) solutions in form factors that can be modified and ruggedized to meet your needs of aircraft worldwide, to ensure continuous access to precise, actionable data and to enable the safe, efficient operations worldwide.
Beyond GPS: A Multilayered Approach to Addressing PNT Vulnerabilities
This white paper discusses options for deploying a range of interlocking and overlapping solutions. In this multilayered vision, existing and emerging technologies can be used to minimize threats.
Creating a GNSS Test Plan
How a Global navigation satellite system (GNSS): A general term describing any satellite constellation that provides positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) services on a global or regional basis. See also receiver is integrated can have a major impact on product and system performance. To ensure success, a best practice is to perform testing using a GNSS simulator, which allows for repeatable testing of devices with GNSS receivers in simulated environments.
Resilient PNT: How to Detect, Protect and Prevent Disruption of GPS/GNSS/PNT Signals and Sources
In recent years, malicious threats have emerged that exposed the Achilles heel of Global Positioning System is a navigation satellite system. See also/GNSS: Its weak power and unencrypted signal format leave it vulnerable to jamming and spoofing. The loss of PNT information can result in rare but catastrophic events, crippling critical infrastructure that is necessary for our survival.
UAV & ROV Autopilot
Any sensor fixed to either Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. Remotely piloted aircraft commonly referred to as a drone. See also or Remotely Operated Vehicle. Underwater robot common in deepwater industries such as offshore hydrocarbon extraction. See also systems must be light and small and must have a low power consumption. In addition, high shocks resistance is a key element to keep the integrity of the An IMU or Inertial Measurement Unit is an electronic device that measures the heading and orientation and velocity of a vehicle. It contains both an accelerometer and a gyroscope to provide necessary data to maneuver an aircraft or spacecraft, especially when GPS signals are not available. in case of crash. In terms of accuracy, the IMUs integrated on professional drones, should deliver accuracies corresponding to the Inertial Tactical Grade. Accelerometers of the Inertial Tactical Grade will have bias repeatability performances of around 1 mg.
Fast GNSS Lock For Positioning Data For Harsh Environments
Get an accurate timing source for your ground and maritime platforms that supplies timing information even in GNSS-denied environments.
Accurate Timing and Synchronization for Radio Transmission
Get an accurate timing source for your Time Division Multiple Access is a radio channel access method which allows several users to share the same frequency channel by dividing the signal into different time slots. Each "user" or radio on the shared frequency will transmit in rapid succession using its own designated time slot. By using its own time slot, each radio on the shared frequency is able to transmit communications or data without talking over the other radios and experiencing interference. Radio Network that supplies timing information even in GNSS-denied environments.
