CAESAREA, Israel, September 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
GPSdome Ltd., the cyber company, announced today that it received a purchase order from a leading provider of autonomous car Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) for several GPSdome units to be integrated in its ADAS platform for field tests. The purchase order followed successful field tests where GPSdome provided GPS protection for operating the ADAS platform under GPS jamming and spoofing conditions.
"GPSdome was installed in a testing vehicle integrated with the ADAS platform in order to test its ability to protect its navigation and timing systems during a drive under jamming conditions," said Moshe Kaplan, GPSdome's CTO. "The successful tests showed that the GPSdome-protected vehicle continued operating safely under jamming attacks and retained its GPS reception, while the unprotected vehicle lost the GPS signal."
"GPSdome is the only commercially available product today ready for autonomous car field tests, which provides a GPS protection from jamming and spoofing," said Ehud Sharar, GPSdome's Chairman. "The amazing minimal SWaP (size, weight and power) and affordable price make GPSdome ideal for autonomous vehicles."
"GPS is a critical component in connected and autonomous cars," said Gai Mar-Chaim, Senior Partner at the management consulting firm POC. "According to the European GNSS Agency, GPS will play an important role in smart mobility applications, such as navigation, fleet management and road traffic monitoring, as well as in safety-critical applications, such as cooperative intelligent transportation systems (ITS), advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and dangerous goods tracking."
"Our product roadmap supports the autonomous car industry's requirements," said Omer Sharar, GPSdome's CEO. "We have recently received a substantial government grant from the Israel Innovation Authority to promote additional performance breakthrough as well as further miniaturization and cost reduction. Combined with the experience that we are gaining in autonomous car field tests, we are making all efforts to be with the perfect product for the car industry once the autonomous car reaches the commercial phase."
GPSdome Ltd. developed a cyber protection solution against jamming and spoofing for GPS-based systems, such as autonomous vehicles and UAVs. Its competitive advantage is its affordable price comparing to existing solutions that were developed for military applications, while GPSdome has been better designed for civilian applications. The company's development team includes electronic warfare (EW) engineers who previously worked for the defense industries, and have developed the GPSdome based on advanced military technologies.
