On the 15th of October 2013 the European GNSS Agency (GSA) released the latest version of its GNSS Market Report. The Market Report brings an updated and enhanced view of the GNSS global market “as it is experimenting rapid developments”. It encompasses a larger scope than before

Applications and services based upon GNSS are becoming increasingly embedded in modern society, to the extent that we Europeans, along with much of the rest of the World, have now become critically dependent upon their correct operation. In the event of GNSS problems, telecommunications networks…

As more GNSS satellites will be operational within the next few years, the confidence of the position and timing solution for the user is expected to increase. On the other side from the integrity point of view the user faces new problems. It has to protect itself against more potential failures that might occur…

Galileo is Europe’s contribution to the multi-GNSS to provide a highly accurate, guaranteed global positioning service under civilian control. Offering dual frequencies as standard, Galileo is expected to deliver extremely good realtime positioning accuracy. From users’ point of view, availability of Galileo’s signal would help in achieving a multi- GNSS environment for redundancy and system independence.

The territory of the Balkan Peninsula (BP) is one of the most active geodynamical regions in Europe. Numbers of publications are devoted to this problem. An important indicator in geodynamical point of view is an eventual station movement of GNSS network stations. Determination of the size and direction of the vectors of movement, their analysis and assessment is of significant importance for their further interpretation with a view to present the geodynamical picture of the region.

Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology has revolutionised the way 3-dimensional positions are determined on and above the Earth’s surface. GNSS-based positioning has become a vital tool for a wide range of applications in areas such as surveying, mapping, asset management, precision agriculture, engineering and construction. A lesser known application that has benefited immensely from the introduction of GNSS technology is animal tracking.

The main focus of this paper is the spectral and spatial characterization of GNSS jammers with specific emphasis on multi-frequency wideband jammers which are able to simultaneously jam up to three frequencies. The paper extends previous analysis to jammers also operating in the L2 and L5 bands

The Indian Spa ce Research Organisation (ISRO) is in the process of deploying the Indian Regional Navigation System (IRNSS), a dual frequency service system. Another contribution by ISRO in the area of Navigation system is GPS Aided GEO Augmented Navigation (GAGAN)

Feb 2013 | Comments Off on IRNSS – Want More From Less?

Indian Regional Navigation Satellites System (IRNSS) is the world’s fi rst regional navigation system with its footprint primarily over the Indian subcontinent. The system is expected to have seven satellites in all, with three satellites in GEO stationary and four in GEO synchronous orbits (Kibe & Gowrishankar 2008). IRNSS is dual use and supports two frequencies on either service of operation.
