Swift Navigation, a provider of precise positioning technology for automotive, Internet of Things (IoT), and mobile applications, announced the addition of Unicore Communications, a leader in GNSS integrated circuit design, to its newly announced Partner Program.

This partnership further advances Swift’s goal to unlock the next generation of mass market location-based solutions across verticals.

Many industries require high precision mapping, tracking, and navigation to enable autonomous vehicles and unlock applications that improve safety and efficiency for businesses and consumers. Ideally suited to meet their needs is Swift’s SkylarkTM Precise Positioning Service, a hardware agnostic cloud-based GNSS corrections service that offers centimeter accurate positioning, fast convergence, and uniform performance.

However, these industries are also renowned for long design cycles that make integrating novel technologies particularly challenging. To meet this challenge, Swift has partnered with industry leaders to create an ecosystem of interoperable components, allowing customers to choose from a wide range of rigorously tested Skylark-compatible chipsets and modules, and even out-of-the box devices and applications. This approach streamlines design, reduces costs, and accelerates time-to-market.

The first Unicore modules to interoperate with Skylark include the triple band UM960 and quad band UM980 series. These competitively priced and widely popular modules, provided in industry standard footprints, now support Skylark streams down to centimeter-level accuracy across multiple constellations including GPS, Beidou, and Galileo.
