GNSS/INS guides autonomous surface vessels (ASV) during naval forces’ critical missions

Anti-jamming and anti-spoofing tech protect receivers in contested maritime environments

Saronic, a Texas-based defense technology company, is leveraging the latest cutting-edge technology for their Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASVs) designed for critical naval missions. These vessels are equipped with advanced sensors for enhanced domain awareness in contested waters. They are designed for tactical deployment, alone or in collaborative swarms, via at-sea launch and recovery from expeditionary craft. Saronic selected Septentrio’s GNSS/INS (Inertial Navigation System) receivers for resilient positioning and orientation for navigating in the most challenging environments AIM+ Advanced Interference Mitigation technology protects Septentrio receivers from jamming and spoofing attacks which threaten to disrupt GNSS-based navigation.

“At Saronic, we’re focused on developing the most intelligent Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASVs) to support naval and maritime forces’ critical missions. Septentrio’s technology enables our autonomous capabilities and, working alongside other onboard sensors, provides enhanced redundancy and reliability. We value our partnership with Septentrio and believe they deliver world-class technologies that enable secure and robust operations in even the harshest environments.”

Why did Saronic choose Septentrio?

  • Advanced jamming and spoofing mitigation for positioning availability even under high-power interference (see results report from JammerTest in Norway)
  • Proven best-in-class anti-spoofing detection for situational awareness, even during the most sophisticated coherent spoofing or meaconing attacks
  • Multi-frequency multi-constellation GNSS technology for high-accuracy positioning and optimal signal availability and signal fallback during interference attacks
  • FUSE+ technology for sub-degree INS heading, pitch and roll angles (3D orientation) 

Saronic Technologies is a defense technology company that designs and manufactures intelligent Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASVs). In an increasingly complex and competitive global security environment, Saronic is on a mission to redefine maritime superiority by integrating ASVs into traditional naval and maritime fleets, enabling them to go farther and do more with less risk to life and mission. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, Saronic employs world-class experts in technology, engineering, naval architecture, and scalable manufacturing to deliver ASVs at the speed and scale of mission relevance.
