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.
NaviLEO selected for COMPASSO
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.
The Moon – where no satnav has gone before!
SpacePNT has delivered to SSTL the engineering model of our NaviMoon receiver. It is the first piece of hardware to be produced for ESA’s Moonlight initiative, to develop dedicated telecommunications and navigation services for the Moon. https://www.esa.int
Successful NaviLEO qualification
After being subjected to vibrations and shocks, our NaviLEO spaceborne receiver platform completed yesterday a 5 days session in the thermal vacuum chamber and it is still working like a charm! Vibrations tests Shock tests TVAC tests
SpacePNT has been selected by D-Orbit
SpacePNT has been selected by D-Orbit to supply its NaviLEO POD GNSS receiver solution for the NOCTUA Synthetic Aperture Radar satellite mission. https://spacenews.com/d-orbit-sar-infrastructure/
ESA selects SPACEPNT
The European Space Agency (ESA) has selected SpacePNT to develop an advanced spaceborne GPS/GALILEO receiver to demonstrate for the first time, onboard the ESA-SSTL Lunar Pathfinder Spacecraft in orbit around the Moon, the use of terrestrial satellite navigation signals (i.e., GALILEO, GPS) for the purpose of real-time and autonomous orbit determination and Positioning, Navigation and […]
