Applanix Incorporates Trimble CenterPoint RTX GNSS Correction Service

Applanix Corporation announced that today (November 12, 2013) that the Trimble CenterPoint RTX correction service will be available across its entire airborne mapping portfolio. 

Trimble CenterPoint RTX correction service is a GPS-, GLONASS-, and QZSS-enabled correction service built on Trimble RTX technology that provides high-accuracy GNSS positioning without the use of traditional reference station-based differential RTK infrastructure.

FAA Taps Six Operators for Unmanned Aircraft Test Sites

U.S. aviation officials on Monday (December 30, 2013) named the winners of a high-stakes contest to operate one of six new research and test sites for unmanned aircraft. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will now work to help the sites set up safe operations and create the structures needed within the agency to help it use the sites’ research results.

DoT Opposes Early Start for Navigation Messages on New Civil GPS Signals

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DoT) is asking the Air Force to cancel its plan to add navigation data to two key civil GPS signals this year, saying they are concerned that the approach and “nonstandard engineering tools” military officials plan to use could put GPS users at risk.

Won’t Get Fooled Again

How many times, as some once-promising politician stumbles up against his pull date, have we heard that irreverent anthem of The Who invoked?

Thousands? Millions?

Yes, back in the wreckage of the second George Bush’s second term, Barack Obama looked pretty good by comparison. Even then, though, raising the banner of “Hope” before the eyes of a desperate nation was a risky thing to do.

Multi-GNSS Monitoring

A common refrain in the world of GNSS is the desire for “interoperability,” the use of signals from multiple systems without a decline — and potentially even an improvement — in the quality of results.

Achieving this depends on large part in establishing comparable parameters — particularly the geodetic references and timing systems — among the GNSSs along with a dense network of ground reference stations that can provide continuous, precise monitoring of satellites’ orbital positions.
