Indoor GPS Provider for Rail
With more than 15 years of R&D in Radiofrequency, Electronics and GNSS signal processing, Syntony GNSS designs and manufactures Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) products and solutions.
GPS Coverage Extension to Underground Facilities
As a signal emitted from space, GPS cannot penetrate underground. Tunnels, metro stations, or corridors cannot be monitored with the number one positioning technology in the world, GPS. SubWAVE puts back on the grid every asset evolving in those environments, by providing an emulated GPS signal in real-time, compatible with any GPS equipment. Since most TETRA/PMR devices come with a GPS chipset, equipments do not need to be changed, or updated: the solution work without the installation of a specific app or software. This GPS Coverage Extension enables every GPS-based application for operators, from management optimization to safety enhancements.
High-End GNSS Positioning of Trains
As GPS is available from almost everywhere on earth, GPS tracking of trains can be used to monitor in real-time the traffic. GPS requires no specific maintenance and is even available in tunnels and covered places with the SubWAVE™ technology. SoftSpot™ GNSS receiver can be equipped on trains, to precisely monitor the traffic, and provide accurate passenger information. Due to its software core, SoftSpot™ GNSS receiver is updatable remotely, considerably reducing the costs in case of modification to make.
Keeping Track of Assets for Years with a Single Power Charge
The main challenge in GPS positioning is the electric consumption of receivers. Some assets cannot afford to be recharged on a regular basis, yet need to be located. SoftSpot™ for IoT is a low consumption cloud-based GNSS receiver, developed to provide 4 positions a day for 12 years, with the power supply of only 2 AA batteries. With SoftSpot™ for IoT technology, assets can be monitored and located, with minimum actions required. Malicious thefts of materials or tools are countered with the ability to locate them if needed. Their management is optimized, as their exact position is known to operators, and they can be re-affected in real-time if needed.
