After a successful first GSA Galileo Hackathon, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) is busy making plans for its next adventure in app building, scheduled to coincide with infoShare 2017, May 17-19 in Gdańsk, Poland.
Last year teams of passionate coders and geo-enthusiasts from around the world gathered to compete during the first event, which served as an opportunity to showcase coding skills, connect with the Geo-IoT (Internet of Things) app development community, and gain a competitive insight on what Galileo location-based services (LBS) can bring to your mobile device.

The first generation of the Galileo Program, at satellite and ground segment level, has been “an enormous success," according to Miguel Manteiga Bautista, who spoke with Inside GNSS last December at his office at the European Space Agency's European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk.

Is it possible to build a low-cost system to detect and locate a single GNSS jammer in near-real time?
Q: Is it possible to build a low-cost system to detect and locate a single GNSS jammer in near-real time?
A: GNSS jammers are an ongoing threat to the reliable use of GNSS. The problem of geolocating GNSS jammers can be addressed using a time-difference-of-arrival (TDOA) processing technique; however, this problem is quite different than geolocating jammers in other radio frequency systems. The two main differences are:
(1) No GNSS are available to use as a timing reference.
Working Papers • January/February 2017
Working Papers explore the technical and scientific themes that underpin GNSS programs and applications. This regular column is coordinated by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Günter Hein, head of Europe's Galileo Operations and Evolution.

At the traditional January media briefing in Paris yesterday (January 18, 2017), European Space Agency (ESA) General Director Jan Woerner was forthright in laying out the knowns and unknowns about the failed rubidium and hydrogen maser clocks onboard orbiting Galileo satellites, clocks that are absolutely crucial for accurate positioning.

After a yearslong wait the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is asking for comments on whether it should allow signals from Europe's Galileo satellite navigation system to be used for non-federal applications in the United States. The call for public feedback is part of a process to grant a waiver so that Galileo-capable receivers don't have to be licensed in the United States.

A January 14 launch of 10 Iridium NEXT satellites will help implement a space-based automatic dependent surveillance–broadcast (ADS-B) developed by Aireon, in partnership with leading Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) from around the world, and designed to provide real-time GNSS tracking of aircraft over oceanic regions.
