u-blox, a global provider of positioning and wireless communication technologies and services, has announced that its GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) technology is being used in a smart altimeter for skydivers, paragliders, wingsuit pilots and other aerial athletes. Dekunu Technologies’ Dekunu One SmartAlti is a body-worn altimeter that provides a similar quality of information about a user’s altitude and position in the sky as pilots receive in their cockpits. A large, clear display ensures that skydivers can always access that information easily. This helps with their situational awareness and enables them to make smarter decisions about their own and fellow skydivers’ safety during freefall.
