NSSLGlobal and DDK Positioning expand partnership to offer enhanced GNSS to government customers
NSSLGlobal, the award-winning satcom and IT solutions provider, has expanded its strategic alliance with DDK Positioning (DDK), to incorporate enhanced Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) positioning navigation and timing (PNT) solutions into NSSLGlobal’s portfolio of solutions for government customers.
NSSLGlobal will provide, install and service DDK’s GNSS Precise Point Positioning (PPP) solution to government and defence customers, which will enhance their ability to precisely locate and track their assets. DDK’s independent GNSS technology is provided exclusively through Iridium’s global satellite constellation, and creates a robust, resilient and completely independent GNSS solution that has an enhanced accuracy of less than five centimetres, compared to the standard GPS accuracy of ten metres.
Kevin Gaffney, DDK Positioning CEO based in Aberdeen, said: “This partnership continues to be a fantastic fit for DDK Positioning and we’re pleased to be able to expand the joint offering to NSSLGlobal’s long and established list of government customers. We look forward to continuing the journey with such a strong and well-respected company such as NSSLGlobal.”
Neil Fraser, Director of Defence and Space Programmes, NSSLGlobal, says: “We are pleased to expand our partnership with DDK to bring improved resilience, assurance and positioning accuracy to deployed defence platforms on land, at sea and in the air and to small teams globally, developing tailored solutions where required. This is an exciting service offering, coming to the market at a time where resilient PNT is a key demand and forces are expected to operate at greater reach and with greater dispersion.”
