Trimble to Acquire Fugro's OmniSTAR DGPS Service

Trimble announced on March 16 that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire certain assets related to the OmniSTAR GNSS signal corrections business from Fugro N.V.

The acquisition is expected to significantly expand Trimble’s worldwide ability to provide correction services for a broad range of land-based applications in addition to OmniSTAR’s current focus in agriculture. Fugro’s offshore marine business is unaffected.

EGNOS Activates Safety of Life Service

On March 2, ESSP (the European Satellite Services Provider) declared the safety-of-life (SoL) signal from the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) officially available for use by aviation, following European Commission (EC) authorization to provide the service.

Similar to the U.S. Federal Aviation (FAA) Administration’s Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), EGNOS transmits real-time corrections to GPS signals over a large expanse of Europe and north Africa.

GNSS Interoperability

In the beginning, there was only the NAVSTAR Global Positioning System (GPS): an astounding start to the world of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS).

Since the United States declared full operational capability (FOC) for GPS in 1995, two major things have occurred:
