Welcome to ITS2016, Welcome to GNSS, Welcome to NSL

Nottingham Scientific Limited (NSL) is a UK-based small-to-medium sized enterprise (SME).  NSL is pioneering the use of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technologies within critical markets such as those that directly affect safety, national security and commerce. NSL ensures that their customers’ positioning, navigation and timing is accurate, reliable, resilient and robust through the development of innovative GNSS-based services, systems, solutions, and intellectual property.  NSL are proud to be regarded as the UK’s leading SME and one of Europe's leading GNSS companies.  NSL is a major player in the development of GNSS based applications and services within governmental and regulated sectors and has an enviable presence in aviation, maritime, rail transport, road user charging, critical infrastructure, government policy (eg offender monitoring, fisheries) as well as security and defence.

NSL shall be showcasing their latest products in the area of GNSS interference and jammer detection systems.  GNSS is being used for an ever increasing number of safety, security, business and policy critical applications and GNSS functionality is being embedded into many parts of critical infrastructures. International economies are now dependent on GNSS positioning and timing services. At the same time, GNSS vulnerabilities are being exposed and threats to denial of GNSS service are increasing.  To support the use of GNSS within transport applications, NSL has developed "DETECTOR" in conjunction with their partner Spirent Communications.  DETECTOR provides 24/7 persistent monitoring of the GNSS frequencies to ensure that infrastructure operators and transport service providers have a thorough and detailed knowledge of the availability of GNSS within their area of operations.  DETECTOR monitors, detects and characterises all interferences that cause degradation or denial of service to GNSS.  In doing so, DETECTOR helps the transport sector to ensure that GNSS is safe to use and remains protected during operation.  More details on DETECTOR can be found at:
