Munich Summit 2014 Stages Comeback as Europe’s Preeminent GNSS Event

After an organizational hiccup led to its cancellation last year, the “reloaded” Munich Satellite Navigation Summit 2014 successfully re-established the event as Europe’s leading forum for GNSS policy dialog.

Spirent Launches All-GNSS, Multi-Regional/SBAS Simulator

Spirent has launched a new generation of multi-frequency, multi-GNSS RF constellation simulator — the Spirent GSS9000.

The GSS9000 supports an extensive range of constellation configurations, from GPS L1 through to multi-GNSS, multi-frequency systems, including classified/restricted signals. Configurations are available that support multi-antennas and multi-vehicles, for example differential GNSS, attitude determination, interference/jamming and spoofing, and controlled reception pattern antenna (CRPA) testing.

u-blox Releases 4-System Antenna Module

Swiss-based u‑blox has introduced the CAM-M8Q GPS/GLONASS/BeiDou/QZSS antenna module. The module integrates a u-blox M8 satellite receiver IC plus SAW filter, LNA, TCXO, RTC, passives, and a pre-tuned GNSS chip antenna in a 9.6 x 14.0 x 1.95 mm package.

According to the company, the surface-mount antenna module combines low power consumption with high-sensitivity, high jamming immunity, and concurrent GNSS operation (GPS/GLONASS, GPS/BeiDou, or GLONASS/BeiDou), offering a drop-in solution product designers and system integrators.

Paternity Suit

Don’t be misled by the title. This is not another round of speculation about who should be proclaimed the rightful “Father of GPS.”

GPS Modernization Stalls

With the optimism of college-bound seniors touring the Ivy League, GPS managers have been weighing options to dramatically change the GPS constellation. Now, after studying the costs, considering the benefits, and assessing the funding climate, officials have made the starkly fiscal decision to stick close to home and take a few extra years to finish.

New GNSS Signals

The world’s GNSS systems are entering a phase of transformation — modernization of existing systems (the U.S. Global Positioning System and Russia’s GLONASS) and development of new systems (China’s BeiDou and Europe’s Galileo) that benefit from the lessons learned from the original GNSSs.

Notable among the modernization initiatives is an interest in implementing new satellite signal designs. These include the GPS L5, L2C, and L1C signals as well as those signals designed for Galileo and BeiDou. GLONASS designers are also working on modernized signals.

FAA May Tap Three Reference Networks to Monitor Civil GPS Signals

Aviation officials are looking at combining data from the Air Force’s planned GPS ground system with services from other monitoring systems  — or even relying on other systems entirely — to save money on monitoring the GPS civil signals.
