Orolia, the world leader in Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) solutions, introduced its latest military technology innovation, the SecureFind Combat Rescue Beacon at the 2018 AUSA Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
SecureFind, based on Orolia’s technology suite for Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) missions, includes an open channel search and rescue solution, for military use in training or test mode, the company said in a statement.
It can also be configured with a pre-defined, secure channel solution for covert operations. This versatile CSAR solution operates with a silent, push-button functionality that does not require voice activation. SecureFind enables military forces to precisely and safely execute CSAR missions, with optional Assured PNT technology that prevents GPS signal interference, spoofing and jamming.
CSAR technology can significantly enhance military operations by avoiding the loss of sensitive information and technology, avoiding hostage situations and helping to prevent conflict escalation.
“There is no greater need for urgency, stealth and precision than when military personnel are isolated in rugged environments or behind enemy lines,” said Orolia VP Defense Programs, Paul Zweers. “As the only end-to-end provider of Assured PNT technology, Orolia is proud to introduce SecureFind for covert military operations – even when GPS signals are unavailable.”
Orolia CEO Jean-Yves Courtois said this wearable communications technology is more important than even on battles that are being waged on air, land, sea and cyberspace. “CSAR missions are just the beginning of potential uses for this resilient military technology, which can ensure reliable positioning, navigation and timing data in any operating environment. Orolia’s solutions are tailored to support today’s soldiers and engineered with a view toward the future of global military networks,” he said.
The technology also features more advanced functionality such as changing signals on-the-go for additional security, to detect and mitigate GPS jamming and spoofing, and to generate important strategic information such as virtual battlefield maps of jamming and spoofing activity. The platform is simple, very easy to use, inexpensive and meets all the technological requirements.
