The opening plenary of the annual Satellite Navigation Summit in Munich tends to be a ritzy affair, taking place in the evening in an amazing converted chapel and featuring live musical interludes in between groups of speakers. This year the audience was treated to movie tunes, and the European Commission's Pierre Delsaux had a suggestion for the play list.

Designed to deliver a breakthrough in size reduction and lower power needs, reelektronika announces the development of a new series of integrated eLoran/Chayka/GNSS receivers based on the Loradd++ core which extends the range of currently produced receivers.
The need to significantly reduce the size and power consumption of receivers was the main driver of this development, according to Reeuwijk, Netherlands-based Reelektronika. Low power and small size are among the prerequisites for developing wearable instruments.

Spirent Communications plc this week announced its test solutions have been used to improve maritime safety, and this development came about after much collaborative work designed to ensure that GNSS receivers are performing as needed, especially for rescue operations at sea.
Working with the Radio Technical Committee for Maritime Services (RTCM), Spirent has created test scenarios that simulate realistic satellite reception conditions at sea so that GPS distress beacon performance can be improved, allowing users to be rescued faster by search and rescue organizations.

The Federal Communications Commission is being asked to choose between the immediate benefits of officially improving U.S. satellite navigation receivers and the possibility that, in doing so, it may raise interference levels in a neighboring band or make it harder to develop alternative uses for those adjacent frequencies.
Precisely speaking, the agency is deciding whether to waive a licensing requirement for equipment utilizing Galileo signals for non-federal uses — effectively authorizing use of the European satellite navigation system in the United States.
