About the Company

Advanced Navigation‘s mission is to drive the autonomy revolution with high reliability AI powered systems delivering unparalleled capabilities and performance. Its customers choose them for their high performance, reliability and advanced design.

Project Objective

Personal navigation is a fundamental capability. Navigation aids that depend on the availability of GNSS/GPS are unreliable in some environments and susceptible to jamming by adversaries.

This project aims to advance a navigation-aiding system that frees soldiers from reliance on external systems and infrastructure.
