Septentrio has opened a new Research & Development center in Espoo, Finland, to support the strong growth and ambitious expansion plans for its GNSS/INS solutions for professional and industrial applications. The new office is strategically located in Espoo, well known as a high-tech hub with a long history of state-of-the-art GNSS and INS development, housing many leading technology companies as well as the famous Aalto University.
“This new R&D center will support our strong growth and further accelerate our strategic agenda of becoming the leading independent GNSS/INS supplier for demanding applications in industrial, scientific and infrastructural domains,” commented Antoon De Proft, CEO at Septentrio.
Septentrio will be expanding its R&D team in the coming months with qualified GNSS and INS engineers as well as software engineers. Stefan Söderholm will spearhead the establishment of the new R&D center and the recruitment efforts.
For example, the recently released the AsteRx-m3 Sx OEM board, a dual-antenna receiver that combines the latest core technology from Septentrio with the SECORX-S sub-decimeter correction service, enables convenient plug-and-play positioning. High-accuracy positioning is available directly out of the box as GNSS corrections are automatically streamed to the receiver. This significantly simplifies the user’s GNSS receiver set-up process and eliminates completely the hassle of corrections service subscription and maintenance. Corrections are delivered via internet or via L-band satellites ensuring sub-decimeter service even in remote locations where there is no easy internet access.
