Septentrio is a designer and manufacturer of high-end multi-frequency GNSS receivers. Its main target is to provide GNSS receiver boards for further system integration by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). Septentrio's core technology is being applied in various professional fields such as land and airborne surveying, machine control, precise agriculture, marine applications, construction, timing etc.


Septentrio Satellite Navigation N.V. was incorporated in Leuven, Belgium, in January 2000 to commercialize the Satellite Navigation know-how developed at the Interuniversity Micro Electronics Center, the largest independent microelectronics R&D lab in Belgium.


Septentrio's headquarters are located in Leuven, Belgium. There is also a sales and support subsidiary in Los Angeles, California.


Septentrio has an international team of experts, who cover all the fields of Satellite Navigation technology. The company designs its own chipsets, hardware, firmware and algorithms. Being a provider of high-end receivers for professional use, Septentrio prioritizes the reliablility and precision of measurements as well as high degree of flexibility and user control. Septentrio’s products make use of APME, the company’s original multipath-mitigation technology, on-the-fly ambiguity fixing schemes based on the LAMBDA method, and advanced user-controlled RAIM algorithms. Septentrio is also known to first introduce single-board attitude determination systems based on the multi-antenna version of its GPS receivers.

Septentrio’s receiver was used to track the first Galileo signals transmitted by the experimental GIOVE-A satellite. In the line of user products the company keeps its focus on multi-system receivers that make use of all the navigation signals available in the sky.
