Navigating in Space

Spacecraft in low Earth orbit (LEO), at altitudes below 3,000 kilometers, remain within the main Global Positioning System (GPS) signals’ Earth coverage. Spacecraft employing GPS at these altitudes enjoy signal availability and navigation and timing performance emulating that of terrestrial users.

GNSS Notes from InterGEO

This year's InterGEO in Hamburg, Germany, featured the latest in geospatial wizardry including new navigation and positioning components and boards not only driving progress in the surveying and mapping industries, but also feeding into the wider GNSS user community.

San Francisco-based Swift Navigation came into InterGEO brandishing the all-new Piksi Multi, described as the world's first affordable multi-band and multi-constellation receiver.

NASA and ESA to Test GPS/Galileo Receivers on Board the International Space Station

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the European Space Agency (ESA) and Qascom, an Italian company specializing in Galileo, are collaborating to build the first GPS and Galileo receiver to be tested on board the International Space Station (ISS) Space Communications and Navigation (SCaN) Testbed.

Ariane 5 Galileo Launcher Taking Shape at Spaceport

The modified Ariane 5 launcher that will lift four Galileo satellites into space is being assembled at Europe's Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, preparation for launch on November 17.
 
The launch is a major step forward for the Galileo program. The 14 Galileo spacecraft already in orbit have been launched two at a time, by Soyuz from French Guiana.
 
Having 18 satellites in the constellation should enable initial Galileo operational services to begin, a decision that will be taken by the European Commission, the system’s owner.
