Technology company oneNav announces opening of first european office in Tampere, Finland

Advanced GNSS digital receiver IP core developer seeks to add expertise to global engineering team with the establishment of new subsidiary oneNav Finland Oy.

Silicon Valley, California-based technology company oneNav today announced the  opening of its oneNav Finland Oy office in Tampere, Finland. oneNav is developing the next generation Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver for smartphones, wearables, and tracking and augmented reality (AR) devices. The oneNav pureL5™ GNSS system was built from the ground up to fully leverage the modernized E5/L5/B2 signaling band deployed on multiple constellations including Galileo, GPS, and BeiDou.

The new E5/L5/B2 signal has considerable benefit over the legacy L1 signal that has been used since the 1980s. The signal enables higher precision and better multipath mitigation, it improves coverage and reliability, and is a unified signal, ensuring global interoperability.

The oneNav pureL5™ system utilizes Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to improve its solution by removing reflected signal errors which most commonly cause GNSS inaccuracy in deep urban environments. Devices powered by oneNav’s technology will produce high accuracy in challenging signal conditions while benefiting from reduced component bulk and complexity.

With the opening of an office in Tampere, oneNav plans to add engineering talent to the team currently led by Dr. Florean Curticapean, its Director of Position Engineering with more than two decades of professional experience in GNSS and mobile.

– We are excited to benefit from Tampere’s long technological history to add critical expertise to our team in Finland,” said Steve Poizner, oneNav’s co-founder and CEO.

– We’re delighted to welcome OneNav team to Tampere. Talent is the key to attract such investments, but this does not appear overnight or by accident. Our businesses are benefitting from many years of research and education at Tampere University, more specifically in the Electrical Engineering Unit. Indeed, Tampere is the host of the ICL-GNSS Conference, welcoming a global audience to address the latest research on wireless and satellite-based positioning techniques to provide reliable and accurate position information with low latency,” says Business Tampere's Senior Business Advisor, Oliver Hussey.
