Timing as a ServiceSM

Resilient timing for critical infrastructure

Resilient timing, when and where you need it

GPS timing solutions lack the resilience, reach, and flexibility many of today’s critical infrastructure providers require.

NextNav Timing as a Service fills in the coverage gaps left by GPS timing, providing reliable service indoors and in dense urban areas with a broadcast signal 100,000x stronger than GPS.

With the capability to operate independently of GPS, NextNav TaaS℠ also provides a resilient option for critical infrastructure providers to fall back on when outages impact GPS clocks around the world.

Tested and proven

  • In a US Department of Transportation study of eleven GPS alternatives, NextNav’s Timing as a Service outperformed every solution, ranking #1 in every category.
  • With accuracy to 20 nanoseconds, TaaS delivers high precision timing for any use case.
  • NextNav Timing as a Service is mission ready, with a NIST TRL of 8.
