NextNav announces new European Commercial Testbed for its Pinnacle technology
NextNav has taken the first step toward providing a resilient 3D PNT capability in Europe, opening a new commercial testbed for its Pinnacle technology in France.
This is the company’s first European testbed for the high-accuracy vertical location technology and will be located in the Paris area, according to a news release. The testbed will demonstrate the benefits Pinnacle can offer local emergency response agencies as well as provide integration with applications and devices from NextNav partners.
Pinnacle offers precise floor-level vertical location—which is critical for emergency responders who need to quickly find victims. The terrestrial-based system provides accurate 3D PNT for emergency services, logistics, telecommunications and other sectors that rely on precise positioning and timing but are vulnerable to GPS interference.
