About FocalPoint

Our vision is to improve every positioning solution

We believe that GNSS is one of the marvels of the modern world. Over a trillion dollars of the US economy and over 800 billion euros of the European economy currently depends on this incredible positioning and timing system. However, the sensitivity and accuracy of current receivers fail the levels of performance 21st century businesses and individuals demand. Our revolutionary technologies transform the capability of all GNSS devices.
