Xi Systems wins Dstl study into navigation in GPS denied environments

Xi Systems wins contract to deliver research study into the Trilateration of Organic Frequencies.

Xi systems have been awarded a contract with The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl); one of the principal government organisations dedicated to science and technology in the defence and security field. The contract will deliver a concept study into the use of trilateration to locate own force transmitters on the battlefield. 

The study will focus on the existing BOWMAN equipment and determine if it is possible to derive a position of a single radio by using other radios in a network as navigation ‘beacons’.  Xi Systems will be studying whether this is feasible, the level of accuracy that can be expected and what conditions affect that accuracy. 

Managing Director Simon Ballantyne stated:

“Having been recognised for our expertise through a competitive tender process, we are excited to again deliver our expertise to answer challenging technology questions for Dstl.”

Xi Systems exists to provide strategically significant technology in the Defence and Security markets, whilst delivering high quality long term jobs for our engineers. Since forming in 2010 we continue to exceed our clients expectations for value and expertise.
