On September 15, 2021, Jannatec Technologies announced its partnership with Syntony GNSS which will assist expanding the implementation of innovative underground GPS signals in Canadian mines.
GPS Coverage in underground mines
This partnership will allow Syntony and Jannatec the ability to provide underground our GPS Coverage Extension (SubWAVE product) for the Mining Industry, improving both global productivity and safety.
Jannatec Technologies based out of Sudbury, Ontario has, for decades, provided safety, lighting and telecommunication products and services to the mining sector, with our most recent innovation being SmartHelmets for workers in mining and other industries.
Mining and GNSS expertise working together
Based on the considerable experience between parties, the two companies have now agreed to deploy the underground GPS system as we firmly believe that this innovative infrastructure will allow for the provision of the best geolocation in the sector.
‘’With the advent of more autonomous vehicles being introduced into the mining sector, it was an easy decision to partner with Syntony and use their SubWAVE™ technology to someday guide this new equipment. Tracking of assets will also be streamlined as the operation will be able to leverage their existing GPS-enabled devices, such as smart phones and two-way radios, to track and locate equipment and personnel faster in case of emergency. We are excited to join forces and look forward to working on future underground GPS-based solutions with Syntony.’’ – Marc Brunet, Sales Manager, Jannatec Technologies.
‘’Working with Jannatec is an evident choice as we strongly believe in the potential of such innovative partner for deploying our SubWAVE™ technology to the underground mines in Canada. Our commitment to consistently provide the most advanced technologies to the mines is in pure correlation with their vision, which is then a perfect fit for our underground GPS-signal technology’’ – Gui Clavel, lead, Mining Operations & Business Dev. for Syntony.
