Industrial and Scientific Applications

Industrial applications covers many areas including agriculture, oil & gas, construction, power generation & utilities, medical and machine to machine. All of these areas have a common requirement for high precision, accurate, reliable and seamless technology which is robust and able to stand up to the demanding and often safety critical nature of the use of GNSS in these areas.


GNSS research in the university and scientific communities has pushed the boundaries of knowledge since the first GPS satellites were launched. Modern times show the signals from multiple-satellite constellation systems being received on a single board, utilising multiple frequencies to push the boundaries of accuracy and precision. Scientific exploration and research such as ionospheric scintillation, earth deformation and other geophysical topics all heavily use high precision GNSS systems often for baseline data gathering.

As well as supplying high precision GNSS equipment such as multi-constellation receivers from Septentrio, into scientific establishments, Chronos is also involved in the research field itself.

GPS Repeating bringing Efficiencies to Industry

The increase of GNSS integration into new products has created many new indoor testing applications and requirements. Research & Development, product testing, product inspection and maintenance applications may have diverse requirements but all need to test GPS indoors. The installation of a GPS repeater significantly increases productivity and ROI by bringing the GPS / GNSS signal inside the facility enabling testing or calibration of GPS-enabled devices on a production line or end of line testing; laboratories; or infotainment and satnav systems on a vehicle assembly line.

Chronos has been supplying and installing GPS repeater solutions for both military and commercial applications for over 30 years. Contact our expert team who will be happy to help.
