On Friday 20th 2019 at the annual GPS World Dinner held at the Institute of Navigation GNSS+ Conference, Dr Ramsey Faragher, Founder & CEO of Focal Point Positioning was presented with the prestigious GPS World signals leadership award for their groundbreaking SuperCorrelation technology.

In his acceptance speech* Ramsey praised the Focal Point team and said “critically it is the hard work of our partner chipset companies too that are really moving the technology into the real world.”

Founded 4 years ago in Cambridge, Focal Point Positioning (Focal Point) have expanded into two offices and steady team growth has enabled them to focus efforts on fine-tuning their now commercially-deployable technology.

Ramsey continued:

It is a great time to be working in this field and I greatly look forward to continuing to do so, in collaboration with so many good friends and colleagues in this room and in the wider PNT community.

The ION GNSS+ 2019 Conference is the 31st International Technical Meeting of the Satellite Division of the Institute of Navigation (ION) and world's largest technical meeting and showcase of GNSS technology, products and services and brings together thought-leaders in the field to present new research, introduce new technologies, and exchange ideas. Focal Point had a strong presence throughout the conference; Ramsey receiving the award on Wednesday night, spoke on a panel, as well as launched the S-GNSS service on Thursday, and co-chaired the session “Developments in Indoor Positioning” on Friday.

It is an honour for both Ramsey and Focal Point to be recognised for its leadership in bringing the next generation of GNSS technology to the world. It only highlights the level of industry changing innovation that is still being developed by British startups and we look forward to continuing the work with our partners on bringing these technologies to the world.
