China’s 2008 NaviForum Postponed; “Telematics@China” Takes Its Place


NaviForum,
China’s large GNSS industry event, has been postponed from this December until next year.

“Due to the big earthquake and Olympics game in China, the Chinese government decided to postpone the NaviForum to sometime next year,” NaviForum organizer Peter Zhou told Inside GNSS. Zhou is executive secretary of the conference’s organizing committee.

China Adds Details to Compass (Beidou II) Signal Plans

China’s Compass navigation system (Beidou II) will offer 10 services — five free “open” services, and five restricted “authorized” services — centered at eight different carrier frequencies.

GNSS Album: Images and Spectral Signatures of the New GNSS Signals

Until now, civilian global satellite navigation systems (GNSS) receivers have had essentially only one signal, the GPS L1 C/A-code, reliably available for navigation. However, in the coming years, many more operational GNSS signals, systems, and frequencies will become available to civilian users.

SIDEREUS: Linking EU, Asia SMEs with Galileo Focus

A European initiative is seeking to link small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Asia and Europe through a series of one-on-one encounters between businesses operating in the aerospace and information and communication technology (ICT) sectors, with a special focus on Galileo-based satellite navigation applications.

The Art of ARTUS–A Second-Generation Galileo/GPS Receiver

Creation of new global navigation satellite systems and modernization of existing ones is introducing many new signals across a wide swath of RF spectrum now and in the near future. These developments are accompanied by a growing need to design new GNSS receivers that can work with new signal structures on an increasing number of frequencies.

Europe’s Galileo program has supported a number of activities intended to promote innovations in receiver design, such as prototype Galileo user equipment, reference receivers, and so on.

China's Compass/Beidou: Back-Track or Dual Track?

A recent presentation on Compass/Beidou that appeared to reflect a step back from China’s GNSS program more likely represented a step sideways — and an implicit acknowledgment of the complex political and technical elements involved in such an enterprise.

In February 20 remarks at the Munich Satellite Navigation Summit in Germany, Jing Guifei, a project manager at the National Remote Sensing Center of China (NRSCC), seemed to play down the global aspects of Compass — or Beidou 2 — while underlining near-term efforts to implement a regional capability for the system.

MEMS and Platform Orientation & Deep Integration of GNSS/Inertial Systems

Q: How can a GPS receiver or MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) inertial sensor assembly sense a host platform’s orientation? How can these sensor technologies be combined together?

China GNSS 101

Late last year, I attended China’s only government-sanctioned international conference on GNSS and visited a number of local companies. I came to one conclusion: The world of GNSS is about to change, and China will have a lot to do with that.

Consider this: China has launched its own GNSS system, Compass/Beidou. It has liberalized policies on GNSS receivers and navigable digital maps. It is already one of the world’s largest economies with enormous capital reserves and steadily-growing disposable income in the hands of millions of citizens.

China to Reveal Compass Plans ‘Soon’

China will release details of its Compass (or Beidou 2) program “soon,” including an Interface Control Document (ICD) for the GNSS system’s open civil service and a launch schedule for additional satellites, according to representatives of the China Satellite Navigation Engineering Center speaking at the Shanghai Navigation Forum (NaviForum) in Shanghai on Thursday and Friday (December 6-7).
