DDK – strategic partnerships are core to the way we develop our business accuracy everywhere

Iridium® is the only mobile voice and data satellite communications network that spans the entire globe. DDK Positioning uses the Iridium® satellite network to provide global precision positioning services that can augment GNSS constellations, including GPS, Galileo and GLONASS, to significantly enhance their accuracy for critical industrial applications. 

The partnership between DDK Positioning and Iridium provides a truly unique positioning service. Currently, standard positioning accuracy through a system like GPS is typically within 10m, however by using the Iridium network, DDK Positioning enhanced GPS accuracy service brings precise positioning to less than 5cm, with pole-to-pole coverage.

Oceaneering and DDK Positioning work in partnership to supply a GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) augmentation service and all associated software and hardware to support Oceaneering’s C-Nav® Positioning Solutions group offerings. 

DDK Positioning’s services are delivered exclusively through the Iridium® satellite communications network coupled with hardware developed by partner Topcon.

This pairing of cutting-edge hardware and advance communication infrastructure enhance the ability of Oceaneering’s customers to precisely position their assets globally. This unified solution offers several benefits to Oceaneering’s positioning customers including, two-way communication enabling machine control and feedback, and redundancy to cover potential signal losses. 

DDK Positioning provides the MAX service to Oceaneering clients, which can achieve accuracy to less than 5cm. The MAX service uses both GPS, Galileo, and GLONASS constellations. 

NSSLGlobal is partnered with DDK Positioning to offer enhanced GNSS positioning to its maritime customers.

NSSLGlobal will provide, install and service DDK’s GNSS Precise Point Positioning (PPP) solution which strengthen’s the ability of NSSLGlobal’s customers to precisely locate and track their assets.

DDK Positioning’s independent GNSS technology is provided exclusively through Iridium’s global satellite constellation, and creates a robust, resilient and completely independent GNSS solution that has an enhanced accuracy of less than 5cm, compared to the standard GPS accuracy of 10m.

Topcon Positioning Systems supply Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) hardware components to DDK Positioning.

The Topcon GNSS components will be used by DDK Positioning to deliver their MAX services to their clients. These clients, primarily in the offshore survey and maritime sectors, can achieve accuracy to less than 5cm.
