Positioning, Navigation & Timing

Civilian and Military infrastructures rely heavily on the position, velocity and timing information received from global navigation satellite systems (GNSS).

    Centauri specializes in providing realistic, relevant & rigorous testing and evaluation of the software and hardware utilized to provide, verify and assure GNSS data. Testing is done with hardware-in-the-loop or in live field environments.

    Modeling Simulation and Analysis

    Modeling Simulation and Analysis (MS&A) is a group of engineering processes that involves the study of system components, the development of mathematical and physics-based algorithms that can be coded into numerical software models and/or simulators. Modeling and simulation is used to explore solution trade space and evaluate alternatives to provide detailed insights to analytical questions.

    Geo-Positioning and Targeting

    Geo-positioning, a foundational operation in remote sensing and geospatial intelligence (GEOINT), determines the location of objects with respect to a given reference frame based on the information gathered by the sensor(s) from a location remote to the observed objects. Knowing that something exists in the scene is important, but knowing precisely where it is located gives context and makes the data actionable. The process of geo-positioning provides the “where” aspect of intelligence gathering.

    PNT Field Test Support

    Centauri supports both DoD and Civil field testing to: (1) validate M&S and HITL performance and (2) quantify performance in a more realistic operational setting. During the planning phase, Centauri solicits input from the customer to determine the best location and assets and leverages our experience to reduce cost, risk and schedule. Our support includes flight testing with manned and unmanned platforms and ability to rent threat representative test equipment versus needing to own and maintain them yourself. Centauri’s logistics and planning team make field tests around the world possible even with classification controls and COVID limitations. Our team approach is ready to ensure your mission success.

    Precision Engagement

    A key component of our nation's security strategy is precision engagements against time-sensitive targets with precision-guided weapons. While laser-guided weapons require a man-in-the-loop for guidance, all-weather GPS-guided weapons require precision target coordinate placement on the globe. Those precision engagement weapons are essential to our nation's global War on Terror as we require minimum collateral damage while ensuring maximum weapon effectiveness. Centauri specializes in providing rigorous photogrammetric science and sensor modeling to enable our nation's strategic and tactical imaging systems to support computing those coordinates rapidly and confidently.
