Defense Authorization Bill Signals Full GPS Funding, Pushes GPS Back-Up

Yesterday (December 23, 2016) President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2017, a $619-billion bill with a number of provisions affecting satellite navigation.

The legislation (S. 2943) fully authorizes the administration's requests for all the elements of the GPS program — and signals indirectly that appropriators eventually will provide comparable support — although the NDAA does put additional requirements on those developing the new GPS ground system.

u-blox GNSS Module Featured in Tracking Device

Thalwil, Switzerland-based u-blox has announced that two of its products have been used by Cobilsys to create a small, battery-powered asset tracking device.

Cobilsys' ATPACK tracker measures 53 by 48 by 15 millimeters and can be used to track the location of cars, motorcycles, and pets, the company said. The product uses a u-blox EVA-M8M, the industry's smallest GNSS module, which works with GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, and BeiDou, the company said.

Two More Galileo Satellites Transmitting Navigation Signals

After months of testing, the European Space Agency (ESA) has announced that Galileo satellites 13 and 14 are transmitting healthy navigation signals and ready to relay distress calls to emergency services.

The satellites, launched from Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana on May 24, went through lengthy testing that included receiving and uplinking signals through specialized antennas, ESA said. Some of the tests included navigation and search and rescue payloads methodically switched on, the agency said.

u-blox Releases Integrated Antenna GNSS Receiver

Thalwil, Switzerland-based u-blox has released its SAM-M8Q GNSS receiver with integrated antenna. The compact SAM-M8Q module speeds time to market for GNSS system developers who have limited experience in radio frequency (RF) and antenna design, the company said.

SAM-M8Q, housed in a 15.5 by 15.5 x 6.3 millimeter package, can be embedded in small devices that require location information, the company said. These include asset tracking, telematics systems, and generic automotive after-market applications.

GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou for Mobile Devices

The navigation sensors for location-based services (LBS) are complex technical systems. Modern technical science can answer most questions about the optimality of particular position determination methods, signal processing algorithms, electronic circuits or similar well-defined problems, but the rigorous answer to the questions concerning the optimal LBS positioning sensor are still a big problem.
