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.

Securing PNT Workshop Looks at GNSS Back-up Options

With eyes on a future where reliable GNSS back-ups are in place to protect against both accidental or intentional disruptions of GNSS, three organizations represented on Positioning, Navigation and Timing Technical Group (PNTTG) – Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), Royal Institute of Navigation (RIN) and The General Lighthouse Authorities – hosted a seminar last month to review user needs and the status of two possible RF back-up options to GNSS mentioned in the London Economics report on the economic impact of a GNSS disruption.
