Septentrio’s origins are deeply rooted in the scientific community. The company was founded as an offshoot of imec (originally the Interuniversity Microelectronics Centre) in Leuven, Belgium, the world’s leading nano-electronic research institute.
Septentrio’s knowledge and expertise have added significantly to a deeper understanding of space and satellite communications. We have worked with the European Space Agency (ESA) since the beginning of the Galileo Space Program. The first GNSS receiver ever to receive live Galileo signals was built by our team of dedicated engineers. Our reputation grew as we helped to develop EGNOS.
Septentrio receivers are used from the highest mountains in South America to the geysers of Iceland, from Princess Elizabeth Base in Antarctica to the deep tundra of the Russian Federation. Scientists worldwide depend on Septentrio’s high performance GNSS receivers with multipath mitigation and advanced RTK algorithms to support groundbreaking scientific work under the most extreme conditions.
