GNSS use cases from our customers around the world

For over two decades Septentrio receivers have been providing reliable high accuracy positioning in some of the world’s most demanding environments. They are detecting ice movement in Antarctica; they are part of leading machine control systems in northern Europe; they provide positioning corrections for vehicle autonomy as reference stations around the globe. The demand for high accuracy positioning has placed our receivers in countless situations and inside some of the most innovative applications. Below you will find some examples of customers using our GNSS positioning solutions.
