ANELLO Photonics and GEODNET partner on navigation systems


ANELLO Photonics, developer of the ANELLO SiPhOG (Silicon Photonics Optical Gyroscope), has announced new real-time centimetre-accurate positioning and localisation capabilities for its product line of optical-gyroscope based navigation systems. The company says that real-time centimetre accuracy is achieved utilising Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) correction data from GEODNET, a community-based decentralised network of over 3,000 GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) reference stations to date.

Under the partnership agreement, ANELLO Photonics customers will have access to a free trial of RTK services and competitive options for long-term, high-volume correction data requirements. Furthermore, ANELLO Photonics and GEODNET intend to promote each other's technology to drive awareness and adoption of combined solutions that provide world-class position accuracy in challenging operating environments.

ANELLO Photonics says that the combination of its Silicon Photonics Optical Gyroscope (SiPhOG) with GEODNET'S global RTK correction network gives customers access to a new global cyber-infrastructure for reliable measurements at a radically reduced cost. The company added that the partnership offers a unique combination of cutting-edge optical gyroscope technology together with a reliable and global RTK correction network that enables centimetre-accuracy for industries operating in challenging RF and GNSS-denied environments such as city centres, construction sites and orchards.

The partnership seeks to address these challenging applications by leveraging the ANELLO SiPhOG technology and its GNSS-denied dead-reckoning algorithms together with GEODNET's distributed global network of RTK stations, which offers centimetre-accurate solution initialisation.

"We are excited to partner with and support the mission of the GEODNET Foundation to simplify affordable access to RTK correction data via a community-driven, world-wide network of modernized multi-constellation GNSS stations," said Dr. Mario Paniccia, CEO of ANELLO Photonics. "By combining ANELLO's expertise in optical gyro technology, INS solutions and AI algorithms with GEODNET's fast growing global network of RTK correction data, we will collectively unlock new and exciting possibilities for precise-positioning in challenging environments where GNSS signals are frequently unavailable or unreliable."
