Lawmaker: No Prospect of Federal Funding for FAA UAS Test Ranges

No federal funding is available nor will there be for the six test ranges chosen to help integrate unmanned aircraft into the national airspace, a key lawmaker told attendees at a prominent conference on unmanned systems.

“I don’t see Congress doing that [providing money for the ranges],” said Frank LoBiondo, R–New Jersey, the chairman of the House Aviation Subcommittee in response to a question during an Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI 2014) conference in Orlando, Florida, last week.

Sixth GPS IIF Spacecraft Launches

On Friday (May 16, 2014) the U. S. Air Force successfully launched the sixth Global Positioning System (GPS) IIF satellite on board a United Launch Alliance Delta IV launch vehicle. The launch took place at 8:03 EDT from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

The GPS IIF generation of satellites, built by The Boeing Corporation, provides greater navigational accuracy through improvements in atomic clock technology, a more resilient signal for commercial aviation and safety-of-life applications and a longer design life of 12 years.

FAA Authorizes UAS Flights at Alaska Test Site

On Monday (May 5, 2014), the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that the University of Alaska’s unmanned aircraft system (UAS) test site has become operational — the second of six test organizations selected to take part in the congressionally mandated UAS in the National Airspace System (NAS) initiative that the agency is leading.

DoD Condenses Acquisition Strategy to Speed M-Code Units

A shift in the Air Force’s acquisition plan should shave a year off the time needed to finish development of new M-code–equipped receivers and potentially inspire more commercially flavored innovation — and perhaps even the entry of new vendors.

The new approach enables the Pentagon to fulfill a congressional mandate to buy only M-code receivers after fiscal year 2017 and could help convince the user community, jaded by previous delays, to speed adoption of the more resilient devices.

Location Authentication

Smartphone apps represent the most prominent market for GNSS. No other device or community of users has achieved a larger growth and market penetration in the period 2008–2013.

Apple introduced the first GPS capability on a smartphone in June 2008 with the iPhone3, and one year later Samsung introduced its Samsung Galaxy, incorporating the first GPS receiver for this brand.
