u-blox, a global provider of positioning and wireless communication technology and services, and Nordian, a US precision location technology company providing advanced GNSS hardware solutions and services for the South American market, announce the expanded coverage of the PointPerfect Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) correction service to Brazil, a promising market for high-precision GNSS applications.

The collaboration between u-blox and Nordian will facilitate precise positioning for a diverse range of applications, in particular high-precision agriculture, but also service robots, machinery automation, micro-mobility, and emerging automotive applications such as lane-accurate navigation and telematics.

PointPerfect delivers centimetre-level accuracy, achieving convergence in seconds with a 99.9% uptime reliability. The broadcast ensures uniform coverage on a continental scale. PointPerfect’s recently announced Localised Distribution feature, which uses 90% less data than typical network RTK (Real Time Kinematic) services, significantly reduces user data costs. The combination of a low-bandwidth data stream and flexible service plans provides better value for businesses today and easy scalability for future needs.

"Nordian boasts unparalleled experience in delivering and supporting advanced, centimetre-level GNSS correction services across South America," states Carlos Agusti, Sales Director at Nordian."Our collaboration with u-blox further accelerates our commitment to pushing the limits of precise positioning technology in South America."

Nordian CEO Michael Schramm, adds: "Integrating u-blox’s PointPerfect service with Nordian’s extensive GNSS reference network and regional expertise provides our customers a level of reliability, quality, and affordability unmatched by any other provider in the region."

“Entering the Brazilian market together with Nordian marks a pivotal expansion into South America and represents another step in our strategy to globalise the PointPerfect service. PointPerfect is the ideal solution to address the need for high-precision GNSS technology in applications such as autonomous farming,” explains Ari Kuukka, Principal Product Owner, Product Center Services at u-blox.
