S-GNSS dense city scene

FocalPoint S-GNSS

S-GNSS is a chipset-level software product for mobiles, wearables and vehicles that revolutionises their positioning ability in urban environments.
  • 10x more accurate in urban canyons
  • 10x higher integrity
  • Sensitivity boost 3-10x indoors

S-GNSS is designed for the modern system-on-a-chip silicon architecture used by all consumer GNSS receivers.

It requires no extra hardware or infrastructure, and fits into existing architecture as a software upgrade.

S-GNSS is the only software-based GNSS technology capable of determining the arrival angle of signals, enabling line-of-sight determination and the removal of reflected and non-line-of-sight signals from the positioning solution.

It uses our award-winning Supercorrelation technology that combines sensor fusion, machine learning and signal processing.

In 2020, Supercorrelation was described as “Pioneering and revolutionary” by the awards committee of the Institute of Navigation, in awarding FocalPoint CEO Dr Ramsey Faragher the Per Enge Award.
