Why Orolia Defense & Security?

Founded in 2006, Orolia became the world leader in Resilient PNT in just a few years, as one of the few global providers of precise, rugged and reliable positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) solutions that are critical for governments, military, aerospace and defense markets.  With a team of over 425 people, Orolia’s success is rooted in a shared culture that includes entrepreneurial spirit, innovation, operational excellence and a high level of customer service.

In early 2019, Orolia Defense & Security spun off as a separate entity from its parent company Orolia, with the mission of providing resilient PNT solutions and custom engineering services to U.S. Government agencies, U.S. Defense organizations, and their contractors. 

Orolia Defense & Security operates as a proxy-regulated company, Free of Foreign Ownership, Control, or Influence (FOCI).  As such, Orolia Defense & Security is approved to work on the full spectrum of U.S. Government classified and unclassified projects and is positioned to support strategic partnerships in the development of key PNT technologies for the defense market.
