The 3D_SAM™ technology is specifically designed for current and future platform control and guidance projects. The technology draws upon the company’s extensive history for delivering precision satellite navigation solutions for defence, industrial automation and aerospace applications. The technology targets machine installations by facilitating “3D spatial awareness”, (volume occupation and orientations), for both “self” and that of other adjacent moving machines and/or surrounding static objects. Continuous integrity assessments associated with all measurements delivering real insight into operational status. All GNSS satellite measurements are independently checked for integrity to aviation industry accepted standards and then are further validated against known mechanical constraints associated with the actual size and shape of each machine. These measurements are then further validated against the permanent rail network the machines are constrained to.
