Syntony is a company specialized in the design and manufacture of a complete range of PNT and GNSS products and solutions, from simulation to receivers.
Syntony is the result of more than 20 years of R&D in GNSS signal processing, radio frequency, electronics and offers its customers highly innovative products and software solutions.
Syntony’s expertise is used in various industry domains, mainly space, defense, aeronautics, telecommunications, IoT and transport, as well as in various academic fields (laboratories, universities and research centers around the world).
Syntony is headquartered in Toulouse, France, with offices in Paris, San Francisco, New York and Montreal.
Syntony’s network of distributors covers Singapore, South Korea, China, India, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Germany, Norway, South Africa, Canada and the United States, and Japan
SYNTONY has developed a system to simulate GPS (or GNSS) signals in a covered (or underground) environment, typically inaccessible to GNSS signals emitted by satellites.
It is a particularly innovative technology which has been tested and implemented in different metros and/or rail or road tunnels.
The SubWAVE system has been designed to emulate signals similar to the GPS ones corresponding to given locations. The GPS algorithms of the tracking devices will compute the position as if they were provided the signals by the satellites.
A video showing some performance measurement tests with TRAFIKVERKET in STOKHOLM on the use of SubWAVE in Södra Länken road tunnel, are available on SYNTONY GNSS youtube channel.
SubWAVE is not an “indoor location system”. It provides GNSS and when compared with indoor location systems, SubWAVE offers the extension of an existing and robust system encompassing all operational applications for road system.
And as GNSS in the air, one can use it for many purposes and many use cases.
Some use cases do not necessitate any strong requirement in terms of performance, whereas some other use cases will.
This is the same for SubWAVE system in a confined environment
Syntony offers a range of on-board GNSS receivers (SoftSpot), meeting high performance needs (Aero, Space, Trains) but also low-power applications (SoftSpot IoT).
SoftSpot is an SDR (Software Defined Radio) solution for customized high-performance GNSS receivers.
By design, Softspot enables complex and high-performance signal processing for multiconstellation signals, interference mitigation, anti-spoofing management, high-performance multi-sensor hybridization and can meet very demanding custom requirements.
Syntony can provide a complete product (SOFT and HARD) and/or only software components that can be integrated on a given hardware platform.
Syntony has also developed an offer of receivers dedicated to the IOT:
SoftSpot IoT is the perfect low-power GPS tracking solution by reducing the power consumption of onboard IOT devices when calculating positions and using the secure cloud to remotely calculate positions using GNSS signals.
SoftSpot IoT significantly reduces power consumption and enables higher position reporting rates.
