oneNav unveils L5 mobile GNSS receiver
oneNav has announced that it has closed a $21 million Series B funding round, led by GV, with participation from Norwest Venture Partners and GSR Ventures, bringing total funding to $33 million. The company also unveiled the world’s first pure L5 mobile GNSS receiver, which provides the highest location accuracy with half the footprint of existing solutions. Further validating the company’s unique mobile offering, oneNav has signed a strategic partnership agreement with In-Q-Tel Inc., providing U.S. intelligence and defense agencies with a first-of-a-kind GNSS technology solution.
oneNav’s Pure L5 solution is built from the ground up to fully leverage modernized L5 signals from the GPS, Galileo, Beidou and QZSS navigation satellite constellations. Unlike current L1+L5 hybrid solutions that must first acquire on L1, oneNav’s Pure L5 solution both acquires and tracks on the new L5 signals, without L1 aiding, thereby taking full advantage of L5 benefits. By eliminating the need for L1 circuitry, oneNav cuts GNSS RF size, power and cost in half. Supercharged by AI/machine learning, oneNav Pure L5 delivers much higher accuracy, even in challenging areas such as urban canyons. oneNav Pure L5 is ideal for highly space constrained devices such as smartphones, wearables and IOT tracking modules. oneNav’s solution is delivered in a semiconductor IP license package that includes RTL, software and reference designs that can be integrated into a system on a chip (SOC) or built as a discrete chip.
