GPS Innovation Alliance Applauds Reintroduction of Moving FIRST Act

The GPS Innovation Alliance (GPSIA) issued the following statement on reintroduction of the Moving FIRST Act by Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Richard Burr (R-NC), Cory Gardner (R-CO) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), as well as Representative Mark DeSaulnier (D-CA). By establishing the Strengthening Mobility and Revolutionizing Transportation (SMART) Challenge Grant Program, this legislation will encourage the use of technology, including the Global Positioning System (GPS), to advance innovation across communities nationwide.

GPS III: The Next Big Step in GPS Modernization

[Editor’s Note: This article was written and submitted by Mark Crews and John Betz.]

With the launch of the first next-generation GPS III satellite, GPS III Space Vehicle 01 (GPS III SV01), on December 23, 2018, the Global Positioning System (GPS) took a major step in modernizing technology and capability. The U.S. Air Force has continually improved GPS since the launch of the first GPS Block I satellite in 1978, and this ongoing modernization has provided new signals, greater accuracy, and increased robustness for civil and military users. After the first 10 GPS III satellites are launched over the next few years, up to 22 GPS III Follow-on (GPS IIIF) satellites will provide yet another step increase in GPS capabilities.

GMV Uses GPS and Galileo to Provide Robust Timing for the Financial Sector

An increasing number of applications require accurate, reliable, and traceable signals for time and synchronization. Key fields of application include banking and finance, telecom networks and electricity grids. GMV’s WANTime is a new time service for the city of Madrid, Spain, distributed using the White-Rabbit network protocol over optical fiber. A pilot customer of the service is currently the Madrid Stock Exchange (Bolsa de Madrid), connected to GMV’s datacenter by a network link of around 50 kilometers.

Iridium Next LEO Satellites as an Alternative PNT in GNSS Denied Environments – Part 1

The problem of Position Determination based on Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites signal of opportunity in uncovered and denied GNSS areas such as oceanic regions, north regions and deserts can be significant one. How to maintain tracking information of airlines especially during distress and emergency? To achieve that, a new design for Search and Rescue (SAR) positioning information is developed. Position and speed of the transceiver could be estimated based on distributed Doppler information fusion from LEO satellites.

Working Paper: Processing Options 
for the E6B Signals

 

With the rethinking of the Galileo Commercial Service (CS), the E6B signal will disseminate Precise Point Positioning (PPP) corrections whereas the E6C component will be encrypted for authentication purposes. Different processing options for the E6 signals are investigated and it is shown that the sensitivity gap between data and pilot processing can be bridged by introducing non-coherent integrations and inter-frequency aiding. Extended integrations mitigate the impact of noise while inter-frequency aiding reduces the dynamics perceived by the E6B tracking loop.
