Product & Technology

DeckFinder is a local positioning system, consisting of 6 ground-based transmitters and a corresponding airborne receiver.

Each transmitter of the DeckFinder Ground Segment is transmitting an GNSS-independent ranging signal based on radio-frequencies.

These signals are received by two downwards-oriented airborne antennas connected to the DeckFinder Airborne Receiver, allowing the calculation of the 3-D relative position & the relative heading between the Ground Segment & the Airborne Vehicle – the basis to enable automated operations to fixed or moving ground.
