GEOFLEX, new services operator to augment GNSS

GEOFLEX, using CNES (Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales - The French government space agency) patents, is operator of new GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) augmentation services based on the PPP-CNES technology (Precise Point Positioning).

Absolute positioning accuracy of 4 cm (2D-95%)*, everywhere in the world, on the ground, on the sea and in the air, all the time, with only one receiver, without any nearby GNSS reference station: Precision, Availability and Integrity


*Depending on the level of service subscribed: Absolute positioning precision of 2, 4, 10, 50 or 80 cm (2D-95%)

Compatible with GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU and GALILEO constellations and mono and multi-frequencies receivers

An exclusive and worldwide agreement

The CNES and GEOFLEX had signed, on 28th June 2016, during the Toulouse Space Show, an exclusive and worldwide agreement to industrialize and commercialize the PPP-CNES technology.

A wide array of applications

The PPP-CNES Technology consisting to model and estimate in real time all the different errors affecting GNSS measurments, this technology provides added value in the fields of positioning and navigation, precise timing, and meteorological forecast model.

Are you looking to integrate GNSS augmentation components into your business applications? Do you have an international or worldwide activity?

The PPP-CNES technology is available worldwide, on continents, on oceans, and in the air for altitudes under 25,000 km.

The PPP-CNES technology

An accuracy of few centimeters, everywhere in the world, all the time, without any fixed GNSS base station(s) close to the user.

The PPP-CNES technology consists to augment GNSS, that is the different positioning and navigation satellite systems such as GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU and GALILEO.

  • GPS

This technology consists to model and estimate in real time the different errors linked to the GNSS measurements, due to satellites, composition of the different atmospheric layers penetrated by signals, or to the user’s receiver.

All modeled errors (orbits, clocks and satellites codes and phases biases, and even in some cases, excess of pseudo-distance due to the atmospheric refractions) are sent to the receiver of the user as terms of corrections to augment the accuracy and the integrity of its PVT (Position, Velocity, Times) solution.

Contrary to differential techniques requiring one or several fixed GNSS stations close to the user in order to mitigate by differentiation of observations the different families of errors on the basis that they are spatially correlated, the PPP-CNES technology allows to reach the same class of precision than RTK, but without the need of any fixed GNSS station in the surrounding area.

The accuracy, everywhere in the world, all the time, with integrity by nature, without any RTK base station or local NRTK service.

Our vision as operator: the box of GNSS augmentation services

GNSS augmentation issues are more and more important with more than 5 billions of receivers sold until 2016 on a fast growing market.

Skills serving your businesses

  • GNSS, geodesy and reference system
  • Design of permanent GNSS station (components, software, industrial automation, etc.)
  • Telecom
  • Low latency and redundant data and computation centers
  • Electronic and embedded information computer sciences
  • Descriptive statistics, measurement validation
  • GNSS coupled systems and multisensors positioning systems

Those skills are materialized for our clients by GNSS augmentation data streams that we produce and by the solutions we offer in order to correctly handle them.

We are able, with very short market cycles, to assist our clients in the conception and design of their new services and products based on our Hardware and Software development kits (HDK and SDK).

Our basics: High performance, Complete control of all the proposed components, Ease of use, Fast and agile design.

Take advantage of our expertise to quickly create your strong added value solutions.

Innovative strategy and business model

Through its Hardware and Software Developments Kits (HDK and SDK), GEOFLEX provides to resellers, integrators, machine manufacturers and high additional value services designers, building blocks needed to create more added value products and business services.

GNSS augmentation streams are sold through subscriptions in interoperable format (RTCM3).

SDK and HDK, materializing our know-how and our beliefs as operator, are sold through licensing form, GEOFLEX BOXES being reference implementation of those kits.

Soft and hard normalization brought by our SDK and HDK allow interoperability of conducted developments. Firms with this desire can sell their own services, mezzanines or client boxes on a market place, globally enhancing all system and reducing time-to-market for new entrants.

This model propels GEOFLEX to the avant-garde of open and innovative systems, bringing a great disruptive value compared to vertical and closed solutions.

Our keywords: Relevance, Simplicity, Efficiency and Open-solution

Reduce your time-to-market and keep the control of your productive systems by not delegating your intrinsic value.
