Hitachi Uses Trimble Grade Control System

Trimble has announced that the Hitachi Construction Machinery's ZX200X-5B semi-automatic excavator is now available in Japan with the GCS900 Grade Control System.

The system uses GNSS, laser, sonic, or total station technology, to position the heavy machinery's blade or bucket in real-time, for significant reduction in material overages and improving the contractor's productivity, the company said. The unit makes design surfaces, grades, and alignments accessible to the operator inside a cab, Trimble said.

GPS for Everyone

GPS seems to have come out of nowhere. There was no progression like eight-track tape to cassette to CD to MP3 player. One day we were driving around clueless of where we were, struggling with roadmaps bought as gas stations that couldn’t be folded back neatly once opened and — suddenly — there was an amiable female voice coming out of the dashboard offering directions to our destination and showing no signs of impatience when we made wrong turns.

Canadian Army Tests NovAtel's GPS Anti-Jam Technology

Calgary, Canada-based NovAtel Inc. announced that the Canadian Army has successfully tested its GPS Anti-Jam Technology (GAJT) in live-fire conditions on the M777C1 howitzer.

GAJT protects GPS-based navigation and precise timing receivers from intentional jamming and accidental interference, Novatel said. The unit features a null-forming antenna system, which ensure satellite signals necessary to compute position and time are always available, the company said.

Congress Likely to Delay Action on Budget Items, Affecting GPS

Congress is back in Washington with a December 9 deadline to pass the 2017 Fiscal Year (FY17) federal budget and avoid a government shutdown.

Lawmakers are widely expected to pass another continuing resolution, or CR, leaving the final decisions on the FY17 budget until after President-elect Donald Trump takes office in January — an approach that could both help and hurt the Pentagon's GPS modernization effort.

NASA to Launch Satellite-Based GNSS Hurricane Watch

NASA plans to launch the Cyclone GNSS (CYGNSS) hurricane mission aboard a Pegasus XL rocket on December 12 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. CYGNSS, which is NASA's first Earth science small-satellite constellation, will help improve hurricane intensity, tracking, and storm surge forecasts, the agency said.
