accuracy unlocked

Precise positioning is a high availability service that makes satellite navigation more accurate and reliable.

Current GNSS solutions lack accuracy and security, however Deutsche Telekom and Swift Navigation’s Skylark cloud-based correction service are revolutionizing precise positioning for mass-market applications.

This program invites startups and small companies to develop valuable use cases that adopt, integrate, and optimize this innovative technology to create value for their customers.

What We Can Offer

All of the teams selected for the acceleration program will receive the following:

  • One (1) Precision GNSS Module (PGM) Evaluation Platform—featuring Swift Navigation’s mPCIe format PGM receiver installed in an IoT compute platform (which is yours to keep for protoyping and evaluation purposes)
  • Free access to Swift’s Skylark™ GNSS correction service for the remainder of 2021
  • Communication and promotion of the program and the use cases by hubraum, Deutsche Telekom and Swift Navigation
  • Joint business development opportunity for the most promising use cases
  • Investment option from hubraum
