Septentrio announced the release of OSNMA functionality on their mosaic GNSS receiver modules. OSNMA (Open Service Navigation Message Authentication) offers end-to-end authentication on Galileo’s civilian signals, protecting receivers from GNSS spoofing attacks. Spoofing is a malicious form of radio interference, where faulty positioning information is sent to the receiver. For the last 2 years, Septentrio has been working closely with ESA (European Space Agency) during the test phases of OSNMA deployment. The know-how gained during this period is what allowed Septentrio to be one of the first to market with this advanced security feature. The anti-spoofing capability of OSNMA complements Septentrio’s renowned Advanced Interference Mitigation technology, AIM+, and further strengthens the overall security of Septentrio GNSS receivers, making them ideal for Assured PNT solutions as well as critical infrastructure, such as 5G network synchronization.
OSNMA is now supported by the complete mosaic receiver family including GNSS RTK positioning modules, timing modules, and heading receiver modules. It will also be rolled out on Septentrio’s latest generation of OEM receiver boards, AsteRx-m3, and subsequently on the ruggedized boxed receivers.
