Septentrio announced its receiver successfully authenticated navigation data of the first Open Service Navigation Message Authentication (OSNMA) encrypted GNSS satellite signal.

OSNMA provides end-to-end authentication on a civilian signal. This protects receivers from spoofing attacks. Being spearheaded by the Galileo Program, Septentrio is providing a testbed from an end-user standpoint.

OSNMA’s anti-spoofing capabilities highlight Septentrio’s AIM+, an anti-jamming technology, which will enhance the company’s security for GNSS receivers.

The European Space Agency (ESA) and the European GNSS Agency (GSA) have begun the testing phase of OSNMA authentication.
