Brief Descriptive & their solution
GPS signals which civilians have access to are not secure signals which means they don‘t have any encryption or authentication, in which case there is no way to positively know if they originate from satellites, or from someone who is generating counterfeit signals. PanamNav‘s solution acts as an anti-virus software and is a scure and acurate tool to use when GNSS users position (PVT) authentication is needed.
PanamNav can be applied to more than 15 different activity sectors, spanning from transport to crop control and from institutional to private applications. PanamNav‘s solution can be used for human transportation safety, goods transportaion safety, including dangerous good transportation control and robbery prevention or fleet management, by validating the position of vehicles, ships and planes, lorries or public transport vehicles.
PanamNav‘s solution can also be used when trusted position in social networks or safe shopping with a mobile wallet is needed, when safe banking, data exchange and safe stock markets operations are needed, when reliable telecom service, safe power grids and smooth road tolling in smart cities are needed.
