Localisation, Navigation and Timing

FDC possesses full expertise in Localization, Navigation and Timing Systems and Technologies with impressive experience of 20 years in these fields backed by more than 100 successful projects for the French MoD and the French Space Agency (CNES) and 70 projects for European Institutions.

FDC is proud to have contributed from the outset to the development of European satellite navigation programmes.
Our main areas of expertise cover:

  • Existing and future satellite navigation systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, COMPASS) and their satellite-based (e.g. WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS) and ground-based augmentations (e.g. GBAS, DGPS, PPP);
  • Satellite localization systems (e.g. ARGOSS, COSPAS-SARSAT, EUTELTRACS);
  • Localization with Telecommunication networks (e.g. GSM, WiFi);
  • Timing systems.

Our in-depth knowledge of these systems and associated technologies goes hand in hand with a comprehensive understanding of corresponding civil and military applications and the needs and special requirements of each user community.

FDC is Member of the French Institute of Navigation (IFN) and Founding Member of the Galileo Services and OREGIN.
