Taviga launched to enhance GNSS resilience

The founders of Chronos and UrsaNav have formed a new collaboration, known as Taviga.

The collaboration will aim to enhance the resilience and reliability of positioning and timing-based businesses.

As good as space-based services are, they are known to have a susceptibility to interference and jamming.
Taviga is the concatenation of parts of the words for Timing and Navigation.

The company is focused on the provision of Assured Timing and Navigation to secure our critical infrastructure from cyber and other threats, thereby addressing the growing concern that overdependence on single systems for positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) makes us vulnerable.

Taviga combines the founders’ decades of experience specializing in Low Frequency (LF) PNT technology and industrial timing applications at national and international levels. Its objective is to provide a commercially operated assured LF PNT service.

Charles Curry, founder of Chronos Technology Ltd in the UK, and Charles Schue, founder of UrsaNav,
Inc. in the USA, have joined forces to launch Taviga Ltd and Taviga, LLC.

Taviga will focus on preserving and establishing LF PNT networks across the UK, Europe and the USA
using repurposed Loran-C or purpose-built eLoran technology.
