Syntony GNSS became a member of TCCA.

With offices in France, the U.S. and Canada, Syntony designs and manufactures global navigation satellite system (GNSS) products, including GNSS receivers and simulators dedicated to mission-critical applications, transportation, and aerospace and defense.

According to an industry report, the global GNSS simulators market size is set to grow from $106 million in 2020 to $165 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 9.3% during the forecast period. Various factors, such as rapid penetration of consumer internet of things (IoT), the contribution of 5G in enabling ubiquitous connectivity, and increasing use of wearable devices using location information, are expected to drive the adoption of the GNSS simulators hardware, software and services.

“Reliable GPS/GNSS coverage in underground and denied locations like subways, rail and road tunnels and mining is now an essential requirement for emergency services and asset operator personnel navigation and response as well as citizen safety,” said TCCA CEO Kevin Graham. “General citizens and many businesses now rely on GPS/GNSS signals for their navigation and tracking use cases. We welcome the expertise of Syntony GNSS to enhance knowledge within TCCA of this critical area and look forward to working with Joel and his team.”

Syntony GNSS manufactures SubWAVE, a solution that enables GPS to work underground. This allows emergency call location in underground tunnels and stations from any smartphone and provides the location of any first responder stakeholder using a compatible Project 25 (P25) or TETRA receiver, providing critical safety services.

SubWAVE is typically deployed in underground subway networks, underground road and rail tunnels, underground parking and mines.

“We invented SubWAVE to save lives: to be able to precisely locate a firefighter inside a tunnel for example is critical to his or her safety, and this is what our system does,” said Syntony President and Founder Joel Korsakissok. “Also, being able to pinpoint the location of emergency calls made from road or rail tunnels will enhance first responders’ ability to provide assistance and rescue. We are very proud to become a member of TCCA, whose DNA is focused on life saving through critical communications.”
