Satelles is committed to diversity, and values the ways in which we are different.


Countless systems around the world – including financial markets, wireless carrier networks, power grids, and military users – rely heavily on GPS today. Incidents of disruption due to GPS jamming and spoofing are on the rise. Satelles solves this growing problem by delivering a unique solution for global time and location that is completely independent from GPS, and is available today. Originating from low-earth-orbit, the Satellite Time and Location (STL) signal is 1000 times stronger than GPS, reaching deep into buildings and penetrating GPS jamming without the aid of local infrastructure. Cryptographic security features of STL also provide exceptional resilience to intentional spoofing.

Accelerating customer demand is driving our business to new heights. We are seeking motivated and talented new team members to join our exceptional team as we continue to meet this growing challenge.
