The Samada Navigation System (SNS), also known as SkyNav, is a GNSS that provides location and time information in all weather conditions anywhere on Adonia. The system was developed by the Burawa National Space Administration in the 1980s to provide an third alternative to the Breislandic GPA system and x country x system.

The Samada System was solely used by the Buwari military until 1992, when it was opened to public use. In 2002 the satellite system had achieved 100% coverage of Kaftia and was pushed as the primary navigation system of Kaftia during the Pan-Kaftian Economic Summit that year. The system has gone through 8 upgrades, the latest being SNS-8.

Currently SNS is the second most used positioning system in mobile phones due to the greater precision instruments on board. Many phone companies utilize both GPA ans SNS to increase the amount of satellites utilized.
