We change the way how we use satellite navigation, today.

Who we are

NAVENTIK is a spin-off from Chemnitz University of Technology. We were able to prove our product PATHFINDER technically and in line with the market. This was the basis for the further development of our company backed with venture capital. 

We are a team passionate about highly automated and autonomous driving and aim to revolutionize the future of mobility. Located in the heart of Chemnitz, Germany, we develop the PATHFINDER GNSS localization technology for safety-critical automotive applications.

The Founders

Michael Jüttner


Peter Kalinowski


Robin Streiter


Sven Bauer


Michael is the head of hardware development and a co-founder of NAVENTIK. He had been working as a research associate at the Chair of Circuit and System Design at Chemnitz University of Technology as well as test development engineer at Core Mountains GmbH where he gained industry experience with global players like Texas Instruments. His field of competence is embedded design and test. Michael works on the integration of the NAVENTIK software receiver into automotive ECUs and processing platforms.

Peter began his career as an Audit Associate at Ernst & Young in 2005. After 7 years of service, he joined one of his major clients, the NSH Group, as Head of Group Controlling. There he gained expert knowledge in finance, accounting, taxation and management of small and medium size entities in and outside Germany. Peter holds a diploma in economics from Chemnitz University of Technology.

Robin's focus has been on satellite navigation since he started working at university. Together with the whole NAVENTIK team, he is working to bring the innovative PATHFINDER technology to vehicle applications. With his experience in project management, technical expertise and a big portion of entrepreneurial spirit, Robin is your contact for general, technical and cooperation enquiries.

Sven has been programming with passion since he received his first computer almost three decades ago and then studied Computer Science at the University of Applied Sciences in Dresden. Afterwards he worked as a scientific assistant at the Chair of Communications Engineering in Chemnitz, where he developed the GNSS navigation algorithms of PATHFINDER. Within NAVENTIK, he will pursue the further development PATHFINDER to meet all automotive requirements in terms of safety and reliability.

Our Mission

NAVENTIK’s mission is to bring GNSS reference navigation technology for automated and autonomous driving into series production. The qualification of a technology for series production in the automotive sector is a longterm process. On our way to reach this passionate goal, we are paving the way for exciting applications alongside automotive use cases.


Test and Validation

PATHFINDER is available for research and development as well as for validation purposes. We work in close collaboration with our customers on solutions for dedicated problems in vehicle automation and industrial applications.
This helps us to understand real world requirements and constraints.

From 2021                          


A carefully selected set of applications and usecases will be qualified for safety-critical requirements. Especially for industrial applications such as construction and Level 3 vehicle automation, PATHFINDER will be able to replace expensive GNSS reference systems.

From 2022                       

Serial Production

The qualification of the entire safety lifecycle for GNSS systems requires the supervision of every part involved. From GNSS service providers to external services providers, technology providers, system integrators and function developers, NAVENTIK will collaborate with all necessary stakeholders to cover the entire safety-lifecycle.
Finally, we are striving to qualify our technology for vehicle automation levels 4 and 5. 

We intend our customers to develop and market products in series that fulfill all safety requirements for driver assistance systems for highly automated and autonomous driving. For this purpose, we guarantee our customers reliable and precise positioning with satellite navigation. To this end, we are constantly striving to further develop and improve our business and our products. What we promise, we deliver.
