Jonathan Auld, NovAtel
From their global headquarters in Calgary, the people at NovAtel develop technology utilizing Global Navigation Satellite Systems to deliver high precision positioning solutions to their clients worldwide.
A true innovator and technology leader, the company is currently pushing hard to develop the positioning solutions that will deliver the accuracy, availability and reliability required for self-driving vehicles. In addition to centimetre-level accuracy to ensure in-lane safety, the challenge is to develop a positioning solution that works anywhere, anytime – whether in a tunnel, under a forest canopy or in a raging snowstorm. Technology failure is not an option when lives are at stake.
NovAtel’s journey to industry leader in precise positioning systems began in 1992 in Calgary with what it describes as “a small dedicated group of geomatics engineers driven by the possibilities of an emerging technology.” Today, it provides integrated global positioning solutions to meet needs for clients on land, sea and in the air.
Jonathan Auld, the Director of Safety Critical Systems, and the innovative people at NovAtel are creating products that expand the boundaries of what is possible. As a trusted technology partner, NovAtel turns innovative thinking into competitive advantages for customers worldwide in industries as diverse as aerospace, agriculture, construction, defence, marine, and mining.
It’s difficult to apply boundaries to the potential for customers' creative application of Novatel’s GNSS products – products that include GPS receivers, antennas and subsystems that are known for their technical innovation and unsurpassed quality and support.
