GSA Hosting H2020 Information Day in Prague in October

The European GNSS Agency (GSA) and the H2020 Space NCP Network COSMOS2020 are organizing a Horizon 2020 International Space Information Day and Brokerage Event at the GSA’s Prague headquarters on October 11-12, 2018.

The aim of the event is to inform participants about space opportunities in Horizon 2020 and beyond and to provide first-hand information on the next H2020 Space Calls, with a special focus on the 4th H2020 EGNSS Call.

Galileo State of Play
The event is targeted at companies, universities, research institutes and public bodies and will give participants an overview of the evolution of the Galileo Program and its current state of play, in addition to a review of market uptake for both Galileo and the Copernicus program.

Participants will have the opportunity to talk to the authors of the Space Work Program 2019-2020, get tips on H2020 proposal writing as well as inspiration from the latest technology trends. The event will also offer a unique opportunity for networking and for meeting potential partners through bilateral meetings and B2B matchmaking.

As the next EU Framework Program is already under development, participants will also be able to get some advance information of what they can expect from the future program.

Registration is open through October 7, but it is recommended you sign up sooner to make sure you reserve a spot — register now by clicking here.

Lighthouse Releases 4 Frequency Band Input Front-end Processor for GNSS

Lighthouse Technology and Consulting Co., completed the development of a series of front-end processors, “Hibiki”, for software receivers, processing up to four frequency GNSS signals simultaneously. Japanese Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) broadcast GNSS signals in 4 frequency bands — L1, L2, L5 and L6.

Similarly, GPS and Russian GLONASS broadcast in three bands, Europe’s Galileo and China’s BeiDou broadcast in four bands. However, many conventional front-ends process only two bands at the same time, and could not be used for highly specialized applications such as processing multiple signals with different frequencies at the same time.

Galileo 5 and 6 Eccentric Satellites: Mission Recovery and Exploitation Part I

With plenty of promise, the third launch of Europe’s Galileo constellation took place four years ago. What followed was not at all what was expected, as problems turned much of the promise into gloom. Unusually low power and instability in the radio signals received from the two satellites at the telemetry stations operated by the European Space Agency (ESA), the French National Space Agency (CNES) and the Swedish Space Corporation (SSC) showed that the satellites were not in their expected orbit. What followed, however, was a variety of procedures that led to the mission recovery and returned promise to the program.

Brexit and Galileo – Plenty of Rumblings, but Where’s the Beef?

The UK seems well and truly on the path to leaving the European Union. The implications for the Galileo program are still unclear, and won’t be known until Brexit negotiations are completed, at the earliest.

If we are to believe what we read, members of the European satellite navigation community should be quaking in their boots, as Galileo appears to have become a pawn in the wider EU-UK Brexit dispute, with various sources reporting “fighting words” coming from either camp.

GPS IIIF: The Air Force Decides to Stick With Lockheed

Over at least half a dozen years the GPS III Follow On program has taken a number of dramatic turns only to wind up, in true soap opera fashion, with the same leading characters headed to the altar.

At the end of the latest episode, the field of suitors for the multi-billion-dollar GPS IIIF contract narrowed suddenly in April when two of the three corporate hopefuls abruptly left the field.
