DeckFinder™ initiates its activities in 2008 based on a technology discovered on 2001. By deploying a number of “Pseudo-Satellites” (Ground-based Radio-frequency Signal Transmitters), the system began to enable the calculation of precise relative position – independent of Global Navigation Satellite Systems. This represented a major innovation for the VTOL UAV industry, resolving some of the inevitable challenges that are inherit in the control and landing of unmanned and manned aerial vehicles.
As of today DeckFinder™ is the market leader in Europe oering a safe and reliable local positioning system for Vertical Take-O and Landing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles under all weather conditions.
Belonging to the Navigation Applications Engineering subdivision, the team consists of 10 experts from dierent fields of knowledge, as well as additional team members belonging to dierent departments within Airbus Defence & Space which serve as in supportive functions in the daily business.
