Septentrio is a leading worldwide designer and manufacturer of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems, such as GPS and Galileo) receivers and surveying equipment. Its product lines are trusted as well-engineered, widely applicable and easy to integrate, across a wide range of industries.

Septentrio receivers deliver consistently accurate and precise GNSS positioning scalable to centimeter-level and are designed to perform optimally in the most challenging environments.

The segment will focus on Septentrio’s secure GNSS technology for unmanned systems. Autonomous trucks and agricultural machines are already being used to make worker activities safer and more efficient. Drones can go to places that would otherwise be too expensive or dangerous for human workers to reach. Farmers use unmanned systems to survey and even spray crops; NGOs employ them to launch search and rescue operations in disaster zones; event coordinators monitor crowds with them at major musical festivals, and conservationists can track and protect endangered species better in risky areas with them.

“In a few years, autonomous cars will be driving us around, with greater safety, efficiency and comfort than ever before. All of these vehicles depend critically on a multitude of sensors to determine where they are, with robust GNSS sensors at the heart of the system. It is critically important that the GNSS technology used supplies not just highly accurate data, but also a high level of reliability. That’s where the technology from Septentrio comes in,” said Jan Van Hees, Director of Marketing & Business Development, Septentrio.

Advancements will educate viewers about Septentrio’s GNSS technology, which provides both the accuracy and robustness required, while integrating and synchronizing seamlessly with navigation systems and payloads.

“For many years now, driven by our customers, we have been developing GNSS technology for industrial applications that is not only very accurate, but also reliable in the harshest of environments,” says Jan Van Hees, Director of Business Development at Septentrio. “With the advent of drones and the interest in developing autonomous cars and trucks, this focus on secure GNSS is becoming ever more important. It’s exciting to see this technology affecting our daily lives more and more.”

“UAVs and other autonomous systems have an enormous potential in aerial surveying, inspection, and a host of other industries,” said Rochelle Hyman, senior producer for the Advancements series. “The autonomous industry is important to Septentrio, and we look forward to sharing the innovative technologies that have been designed and developed by the company.”
