High Precision

Our technology is able to provide high precision self-localization of any object in all outdoor environments. Combining satellite signals received on two or more different objects, e.g. provided by GPS, our algorithm offers you centimeter-level positioning accuracy even in obstructed environments.

High Reliability

It is important to get a reliable positioning service to be able to plan safely. Our technology achieves high reliability using our novel RTK engine. Optionally enhanced by our highly reliable, fast and low power wireless communication technique, all major components for your high precision application are in place.

Low Latency

To be able to react fast, your device needs to know its position as close to real-time as possible. Our technology provides its high precision solution with very low latency and is therefore optimized for all moving objects even deployed in high dynamic environments.

Prof. Alain Geiger (Co-founder)

Received his Diploma in Physics in 1979 at ETH Zurich. In 1980 he joined the Institute of Geodesy and Photogrammetry where he earned the ETH medal for his PhD thesis in gravity field determination in 1991.

1999 to 2005 he was appointed Professeur associé at Laval University, Quebec, CDN and in 2004 he earned the honorary professorship at ETH Zurich. In 2015 he was appointed visiting professor at National Time Service Center, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Presently he is head of the satellite geodesy group and professor in satellite geodesy and precise navigation at the Mathematical and Physical Geodesy group of ETH Zurich.

He works on precise Kinematic GPS, GPS based landing approaches, geodynamic interpretation of GPS measurements, geomonitoring, 4-dimensional modelling of atmospheric refractivity, and GNSS-reflectometry. He is lecturing in these fields at ETH and was also appointed as lecturer at the University of Zurich and the University of Applied Sciences in Winterthur. He is a fellow of the International Association of Geodesy and president of the Swiss Geodetic Commission of the Swiss Academy of Sciences. In 1999 he co-founded the Swiss Institute of Navigation; as past-president he still acts as a board member. 2010 he co-founded the Swiss Aerospace Cluster and after his presidency 2014 to 2016 he acts as a board member.
