The French Navy Commandos now have access to Safran Electronics & Defense’s new NAVKITE robust PNT system, which enables special forces to function in GNSS-denied environments.
Safran Electronics & Defense has introduced its new NAVKITE resilient PNT system for the French Navy Commandos. The system will be integrated into a transportable, multirole, semi-rigid boat designed for commandos and other special forces. Operating in a GNSS-denied environment is a significant challenge for special forces due to jamming, spoofing or lack of signals. The compact, hybrid navigation system was developed by Safran Electronics & Defense in partnership with FUSCOLAB and includes a GEONYX M inertial navigation system and a VersaSync time/frequency server. The NAVKITE system provides navigation integrity and performance whether used on land or at sea and was successfully tested during sea trials and deployed in a joint services exercise.
