NavSAS started a collaboration with TELIT. Telit Wireless Solutions is an enabler of the global machine-to-machine (m2m) movement. The company views m2m as the space intersected by the following three technology pillars:
- Long-range cellular connection of devices to each-other and the Internet of Things (IoT);
- Short-to-long range license free wireless connection of devices to their peripherals, to each other, and to long-range gateways;
- Position awareness for all connected devices.
Telit delivers its extensive portfolio of cellular, short-range, and positioning products in over 80 countries. By making these products business scalable, interchangeable across families, technologies, and generations, and with high quality standards, Telit keeps development cycles short and cost optimized, protects customer design investments, and removes technology risk.
The activity is mainly focused on the porting of a basic real-time GNSS receiver architecture on a microprocessor platform, using the SDR (Software Defined Radio) methodology. The goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of implementing a complete GNSS software receiver on a programmable platform that presents significant limitations of computational power and memory, compared to a standard personal computer.
