SpacePNT SA is an innovative, low cost GNSS receiver maker for the fast-growing New Space satellite market, delivering decimetre-level positioning and timing accuracy for single satellites and LEO constellations and highest signal reception sensitivity for Moon missions, all in real-time through its unique Positioning, Navigation and Timing technology.
SpacePNT works as an agile company, with a permanent core of talented people with many years of experience in their respective domains that have entirely developed NaviLEO/NaviMoon’s hardware and software technological platform.
SpacePNT has developed NaviLEO, a high performance GNSS receiver platform designed to meet the most stringent needs and challenges of the New Space market.
NaviMoon is SpacePNT’s advanced autonomous GNSS receiver solution delivering <100 m accuracy at Moon altitude and removing the reliance on costly Earth station infrastructures for Moon missions.
NaviGEO is SpacePNT’s high performance solution for launcher upper stages and in-orbit servicing vehicles, with dual-antenna inputs to provide optimal GNSS visibility from LEO to GEO, no matter the attitude.
SimORBIT is a high-accuracy orbital modeling software for LEO satellite simulations, bringing a new level of accuracy and realism to LEO application testing by combining the simulation of precise LEO orbits and highly accurate GNSS signals.
SpacePNT’s core team comes from the Swiss EPFL, ranked 14th university in the world, where it has pioneered the development of high sensitivity GNSS algorithms for space exploration missions, and from Syderal Swiss, that has designed electronics and software equipment for more than 50 ESA/NASA missions without any failure.
August 30, 2023: NaviLEO spaceborne GNSS receiver solution has been selected by D-Orbit for the NOX Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite. The NOX satellite system has been selected for the IRIDE satellite constellation by the Italian public administration and NaviLEO is SpacePNT’s high performance GNSS receiver solution delivering autonomously and in real-time sub-decimeter-level positioning and […]
June 13, 2023: NaviLEO is now moving in low Earth orbit after a successful deployment of its hosting Orbital Transfer Vehicle (D-Orbit ION SCV-011 satellite). The lift off happened on June 12th at 21:19 UTC aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from the Space Launch Complex 4 East (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California, […]
June 9, 2023: The delivery for integration in the SSTL Lunar Pathfinder satellite of our NaviMoon Satnav Receiver has made the “ESA – Technology image of the week” headlines! Thanks to the whole SpacePNT team as well as all parties including ESA and our subcontractors (in particular EECL UK) who have been involved in this […]
May 30, 2023: SpacePNT and D-Orbit completes integration testing of SpacePNT’s unique NaviLEO GNSS receiver technology onboard ION Orbital Transfer Vehicle (ION SCV011) that is scheduled to be launched from California Vandenberg Space Force Base this month of June 2023. NaviLEO is a low-cost, high performance multi-GNSS multi-frequency receiver product platform that has been developed […]
January 20, 2023: In order to speed up industrialization and new products development, SpacePNT has successfully closed a first funding run with Business Angels Switzerland.
December 6, 2022: SimORBIT is an Enhanced Orbit Propagation Tool that enables the generation of high-fidelity LEO trajectories for single satellites or entire constellations. The initial reference state of the satellite fleet can be defined through an intuitive GUI, or imported from widely adopted formats, such as RINEX (NAV). Its orbital model delivers outstanding performance: […]
November 8, 2022: SpacePNT has been selected by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) to supply its NaviLEO spaceborne GNSS receiver solution. NaviLEO will provide the real-time accurate Position, Velocity and Time reference for the COMPASSO project that aims to qualify from the International Space Station (ISS) novel laser-optical technology for space.
