What is your view and experience with open and modular architectures?
Global navigation satellite system (GNSS) itself is an inexpensive technology to implement and is easily scalable, requiring only the appropriate receiver. But adding expensive, complicated technology to ensure the continuity of positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) data when GNSS is compromised can actually undermine the intended benefits for systems. Maintaining a state of military readiness is a top priority for defence agencies. The ideal approach would deliver a consistent solution that is cost-effective across different platforms and provides a compatible, scalable system to all of them. Expensive, inflexible solutions will not solve the total problem. To provide affordable secure PNT for every link in the communications chain, a different approach is needed.
How much gap exists in areas like scalability, configuration, integration, etc. for defense technology solutions?
The ability to design system specifications based on a flexible, building-block architecture is often inhibited by the fact that most contractors only provide one part of the solution. That puts the burden on the defence agency to piece together platforms and systems of systems that are not over-engineered in terms of cost, integration complexity or capabilities. At Orolia, we are building on the approach to provide affordable resilient PNT. Using a collection of complementary, flexible and scalable technologies, we can provide PNT precision and access at a lower cost than traditional navigation solutions that rely on high-cost sensors. We offer a cost-effective, bolt-on – fast and easy to integrate – solution with an open architecture that works well with existing systems and increases security on a flexible scale to suit various risk factors.
