First Results

In February 2011, Russia launched the first satellite of the GLONASS-K1 series, i.e., SVN (space vehicle number) 801 (R26), which in addition to the legacy frequency division multiple access (FDMA) signals, for the first time was enabled to transmit code division multiple access (CDMA) signals on the GLONASS L3 frequency (1202.025 MHz). Later in 2014, the GLONASS program added SVNs 802 (R17) of series K1 and 755 (R21) of series M, and in 2016, SVN 751 of series M, with the capability of transmitting CDMA L3 signals to the constellation.

The International GNSS Monitoring and Assessment Service

Contemporary times have seen an increase in the number of navigation satellites across various geographical regions. In order to ensure that all these satellite systems work together to optimize the positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) of users on or near the Earth’s surface there is need for inter-cooperation and inter-operability of the systems.

Recently Launched GLONASS-M Becomes Operational

The most recently launched GLONASS-M satellite, (GC#753), was set healthy on Monday (June 27, 2016).

The satellite, designed and built by Academician M.F. Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems, was put into orbit on May 29. It replaces an eight-year-old satellite (GC#723) in orbital plane 2, slot 11. GC#723 has been placed in reserve status.

New Firmware for u-blox NEO-M8P Module Adds BeiDou Positioning, Upgraded Dead Reckoning

u-blox has released a firmware upgrade for its NEO-M8P that now supports China’s BeiDou GNSS system in addition to GPS and GLONASS.
Capable of real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning, the new NEO-M8P firmware now offers eight-hertz RTK update rates for GPS.

This year's European Space Agency GNSS summer school on Lake Maggiore in Italy

A few places remain in the 2016 European Space Agency (ESA) International Summer School on Global Navigation Satellite Systems, which will take place at the Italian campus of European Commission's joint scientific and research center (JRC - CCR ISRA) on Lake Maggiore in Ispra, near Varese.

New GLONASS-M Survives Slight Glitch to Reach Orbit

Russia announced a successful launch of another GLONASS-M satellite on Sunday (May 29, 2016) despite an “irregularity” in the performance of the Fregat upper stage.

According to a report by the TASS state news agency, the Fregat operated longer than planned and used its engines to deliver the spacecraft safely into orbit. The Russian Defense Ministry’s press service reported earlier that a stable telemetry link had been established with the satellite and that onboard systems are functioning normally.
