LONDON, August 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Lime Microsystems and Airbus Defence and Space, with funding from Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board), today announced a joint development of robust GNSS products. Airbus D&S, using Lime's Field Programmable RF (FPRF) transceiver technology, is developing a robust timing receiver that exploits signals from the new Galileo satellite navigation constellation.

It is envisaged that a highly integrated Field Programmable RF (FPRF) solution based on Lime's technology and an innovative system implementation of the kind provided by Airbus D&S will provide a high performance GNSS product with the potential for integration with other wireless capabilities.

Mike Turner from Airbus D&S commented that "Lime FPRF transceiver matches our rigorous technical performance requirements and we are looking forward to be working alongside Lime in this strategic engagement."

Ebrahim Bushehri, CEO of Lime Microsystems, said: "We are delighted to be working with Airbus, supporting a complementary technology that could impact a variety of applications such as wireless infrastructure."
