GPS is vulnerable to jamming and spoofing
Systems throughout the military and commercial worlds are dependent on GPS. However, these days jamming and spoofing are neither expensive nor difficult, making this an ideal tactic for asymmetrical warfare.

Psionic SurePath technology provides long-range, precise navigation under all conditions
SurePath is a tactical navigation technology developed specifically for defense customers that has the precision necessary to provide the warfighter with a tactical advantage. Psionic SurePath technology can be applied to Manned/Unmanned Ground and Aerial vehicles.
SurePath technology can be incorporated into navigation systems used for weapons systems to include missiles and precision guided weapons, and it’s available as part of an advanced navigation system that can be added to ground and aerial vehicles.
Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) have accumulated errors that, if not corrected through an external signal—usually GPS—will not provide accurate information for navigation. By incorporating Psionic SurePath technology, IMU drift can be corrected even when GPS or other external signals are not available or cannot be trusted.
Assured Position, Navigation, and Timing (APNT) is one way to reduce the risk to military systems that rely on GPS for navigation or targeting. However, APNT requires some external signal or signals, and whether these will be available on the battlefield won’t be known until a military engagement is underway. By incorporating Psionic SurePath technology, APNT systems always have a reliable signal input even when GPS or other external signals are not available or cannot be trusted.
Integrating into new and existing platforms and systems
SurePath can be incorporated into an existing system and is available as a self-contained system that can provide navigation data to an existing platform such as MAPS.
Rugged, self-contained, reliable
The standalone system is rugged, able to meet MIL-STD-810 requirements. The system for ground vehicles works in all weather conditions and over all surface conditions, including paved surfaces, dirt, sand and gravel, standing water, swamps, and ice and snow, and without respect to speed, elevation, or change in direction of altitude (steep inclines, declines).
It works in all types of locations anywhere on the planet, including in high-density urban areas that may include tall buildings and many competing signals, and through tunnels and across bridges. The aerial system works at altitude and is unaffected by the terrain.
