Gemini Navsoft Technologies (GNT) has signed an R&D agreement with the Korea Institute of Ocean Science and Technology (KIOST) and undertakes a two-year R&D project associated with base system infrastructure and rover system to be used for real-time, high-precision maritime positioning and navigation applications such as high-precision vessel navigation, autonomous vessel guidance and control, etc.
Long term (for several years), on-going R&D collaboration between GNT and the University of New Brunswick (UNB) has been initiated. This project is an initiative to undertake GNSS-based building deformation monitoring applications. The objective of the building monitoring project is a long-term monitoring of the UNB International GNSS Service (IGS) station and the Head Hall building that the station is attached to using the GNT’s mmVu™ deformation monitoring software.

On August 17th, 2009, a catastrophic accident took place in the turbine and transformer rooms of the hydroelectric plant of the Sayano-Shushenskayadam in Russia. Lately GNSS deformation monitoring system has been installed at the dam to improve its safety. GNT’s mmVu™ monitoring software has been used for data processing together with other software packages from major GNSS companies. [more details]
GNT delivers advanced mmVu™ high precision monitoring system to KORDI (the Korea Ocean Research and Development Institute) to support R&D activities in maritime applications such as inshore vessel navigation and offshore tsunami detection. The delivered system features high precision, long range, and kinematic processing.
In recognition of GNT's cutting edge R&D, GNT has been awarded a two year, NRC (National Research Council Canada) IRAP (Industrial Research Assistance Program) grant. The funding will be used to develop a unique, GNSS data processing platform that utilizes two, independent processing engines to monitor position. In deformation monitoring applications, integrity and reliability are paramount. The developed technology will offer the highest precision and reliability possible using GNSS sensors.
GNT has signed a service agreement for performing simulation and analysis of GPS errors with the Electronic and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) in Korea. This project is part of a Korean SBAS (Satellite-Based Augmentation System) project.
GNT undertakes a three-year R&D project for a new, high-accuracy GPS positioning and navigation software package for maritime applications such as inshore vessel navigation and offshore tsunami detection. This project is part of the National Agenda Program (NAP) of the Korean government. GNT has signed an R&D agreement with KORDI.
GNT was tasked with implementing a GPS based deformation monitoring system for measuring the movement of the Mactaquac Dam. The project site poses challenges associated with signal reflection and satellite visibility, leading to the need for ongoing research and development in pursuit of higher accuracy in this environment. The monitoring system, consisting of 6 GPS stations, GNT’s Position Solver and a WiFi network, was installed in December of 2010 [more details] [Press Room].
GNT has been awarded funding from the NRC-IRAP initiative to undertake the Research and Development of a new, low powered, field deployable PC for running its proprietary software in industrial applications. The initiative not only helps reduce hardware costs, but is a greener solution than its previously used technology.
GNT was awarded a contract through Measurand Inc. to integrate low cost, GPS receiver technology for precision GPS monitoring. The project focuses on developing a multi-scale monitoring and health assessment framework for effective management of levees and flood control infrastructure systems. The project is part of a US government initiative to put into place infrastructure for providing safety in populated areas susceptible to natural disasters. [more details]
GNT has signed a license agreement with Taylor Machine Works, Inc. This project involves developing a GPS-based auto-steering logic controller to output steering commands to the rubber tired gantry crane. The system uses two GPS antennas to derive heading, velocity and position information of the crane. A map-and-match approach is used whereby the track of the crane is first mapped using GPS and then the course is replicated based upon the real-time dynamics of the crane. Full wireless system infrastructure has been implemented at the project site [more details] [Press Room].
