SLAM Dance

Digital cartography and automated mapping techniques based on GNSS positioning have transformed our relationship to the physical world. The convergence of these complementary technologies are supporting the growth of commercial and consumer location-based applications that benefit from the coupling of real-time information with maps that are more current than ever — at least in environments that have access to radio signals from orbiting GNSS satellites.

One Fine Day at the DLR

We appear at the gatehouse beside the public entrance marked “DLR” a few minutes early for our appointment — as befits a visit to this sprawling display of German aerospace expertise that is itself usually a good deal ahead of the times. It’s the day after the close of this year’s Munich Satellite Navigation Summit, and we have taken the S-Bahn down from the city.

Bright Ideas Welcome at 2010 European Satellite Navigation Competition

The European Satellite Navigation Competition (Galileo Masters), now in its seventh year, is seeking the best ideas for satellite navigation applications from companies, entrepreneurs, research institutes, universities, and individuals. Prizes total more than €500,000.

The 2010 contest begins on May 1, when competitors may register and submit their ideas online at the secure ESNC website. It closes on July 31.

Delays Continue to Plague Europe's Galileo GNSS Program

At this week’s (March 9–11) Munich Satellite Navigation Summit, Galileo program officials — public and private — acknowledged that it faces delays at both ends of its latest schedule.

At the near end, the lead contractor for the Galileo in-orbit validation (IOV) satellites that it is building with a consortium of companies said the first IOV will not launch in 2010 as per the most recent schedule. Instead, said Mike Healy, director of navigation for EADS Astrium, the satellite will not be ready for launch until probably February 2011.
