Nautel Partner UrsaNav Announces UK-US Joint Venture ‘Taviga’
A UK-US joint venture between the founders of Chronos and UrsaNav heralds new dawn for Loran. “Taviga” challenges the threat of Global Navigation Satellite Systems’ (GNSS) susceptibility to interference and jamming.
Lydbrook, Gloucestershire, UK, 3rd December 2015, the founders of Chronos and UrsaNav have formed a new collaboration, known as “Taviga”, to enhance the resilience and reliability of the many economic and business models that depend on space-based timing and positioning services. As good as space-based services are, they are known to have a susceptibility to interference and jamming.
Taviga is the concatenation of parts of the words for Timing and Navigation. The company is focused on the provision of Assured Timing and Navigation to secure our critical infrastructure from cyber and other threats, thereby addressing the growing concern that overdependence on single systems for positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) makes us vulnerable. Taviga combines the founders’ decades of experience specializing in Low Frequency (LF) PNT technology and industrial timing applications at national and international levels. Its objective is to provide a commercially operated assured LF PNT service.
