NextNav and Broadcom Sign Technology License Agreement to Drive Broad Availability of Ubiquitous High Accuracy Indoor and Vertical Positioning

NextNav announced that Broadcom Corporation has acquired a commercial license to NextNav's Metropolitan Beacon System (MBS) technology. This agreement enables Broadcom to integrate NextNav's advanced location technology into its mass-market global navigation satellite system (GNSS), connectivity and mobility platforms. MBS is an innovative terrestrial constellation, which brings GNSS-like performance to indoor and urban environments where satellite-based positioning is either unavailable or significantly degraded. NextNav's MBS shares many operating principles with GNSS satellite constellations, but because the NextNav beacons are installed terrestrially instead of in space, there is sufficient signal strength to function reliably indoors and in urban markets where a clear view of the sky is unavailable. MBS is deployed much like a cellular network, to provide consistent indoor positioning to every building within a covered metropolitan area. Further, MBS offers both accurate horizontal positioning and highly accurate altitude information, a particularly important capability for the urban and indoor areas where GNSS systems tend to be most challenged.
