NSSLGlobal adds positioning services with DDK agreement

Satcom service provider NSSLGlobal has entered into a strategic alliance with DDK Positioning, to add new Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) positioning navigation and timing services into its maritime portfolio.

NSSLGlobal will now provide, install and service DDK’s GNSS Precise Point Positioning (PPP) technology to allow customers to precisely locate and track their assets.

DDK’s independent GNSS technology is provided exclusively through Iridium’s global satellite constellation, and offers accuracy of less than 5cm, compared to the standard GPS accuracy of 10m.

“DDK Positioning is leading the field in advanced GNSS positioning,” said Paul Rutherford, Service Director, NSSLGlobal.

“We’re pleased to partner with such an innovative company and to be able to add this technology offering on top of the already extensive navigation and communication portfolio we offer our customers. The system will provide greater location accuracy, along with the ability to help detect and mitigate spoofing.”
