China Conference Highlights Plans for BeiDou in International Marketplace

The fourth China Satellite Navigation Conference (CSNC 2013) wound up its three-day run on Friday (May 17, 2013) in Wuhan — by most measures a clear success for an event that has become the nation’s leading GNSS forum.

Well more than 2,000 attendees had their choice of 627 technical papers spread across a broad array of topics in 12 session tracks under the conference theme: BeiDou Application — Opportunities and Challenges.”

Existing methods for improving the GNSS performance commonly attempt to enhance the signal processing and navigation estimation parts of a single receiver. Such approaches, however, leave unexplored the potential benefits inherent to the integration of data from multiple receivers.

BeiDou to Restart Satellite Launches Next Year, Shift B1 Signal Frequency after 2016

China will begin launching BeiDou-2 satellites again in 2013 as it begins its test program for the third generation of the nation’s GNSS program.

After launching 16 satellites since 2007 (including six last year) to establish the current regional constellation with 14 operational satellites and publishing an official interface control document December 27, China called a halt to further launches to evaluate the performance of the system and complete a development plan for the system.

IGS Launches Real-Time Service for High-Precision GNSS

The International GNSS Service (IGS), a worldwide federation of agencies involved in high-precision GNSS) applications, has announced the launch of its Real-Time Service (RTS).

The RTS is a global scale GNSS orbit and clock correction service that enables real-time precise point positioning (PPP) and related applications requiring access to IGS low latency products. The RTS is offered in beta as a GPS-only service for the development and testing of applications.

Letters: Get a Start on GNSS Interoperability Now

“The GNSS Quartet” (January-February 2013, Inside GNSS, aptly named and coauthored by Glen Gibbons, Dee Ann Divis, and Peter Gutierrez) is reminiscent of Dr. Brad Parkinson’s observation about “interchangeability” at his ION GNSS 2011 plenary session. With interoperability taken to its logical level of completion, a position solution should be readily obtainable from four satellites, each belonging to a different constellation.

GNSS Hotspots

Cape Canaveral and Plesetsk
√ [updated April 1] After three delays, a single GLONASS-M satellite will go up from Plesetsk space center on April 26. The United States will send up SVN66, the fourth GPSIIF satellite— on an Atlas V launcher for the first time—during the early evening of May 15. It had been delayed from March.
