Smartphone-based GNSS Positioning – Today and Tomorrow

This article reviews some of the recent results analyzing the feasibility of carrier-phase based positioning with smartphone data and highlights limitations largely arising due to the poor antenna quality. It shows how they might be overcome by antenna calibration or coupling to the phone’s inertial sensors. The goal is to perform a successful RTK positioning with the smartphone-quality data.

Washington View: Big Wheels Keep On Turning – Rolling On The River To 5G

Ligado Networks had an early-year win in the form of a Federal Communications Commission denial of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration Stay Petition involving Ligado’s license for a terrestrial service in the mobile satellite services L-band. The company continues to roll toward deployment of a nationwide 5G network. While filings trickle in from the private sector, the feds work quietly behind the scenes on Congressional due-outs. In short, wheels big and small keep churning down the river to 5G.

GNSS SBAS and Earth Observation Satellites Help Improve Farm Soil Drainage and Variable Rate Fertilization

Using in situ sensors, GNSS corrections and satellite remote sensing, it is possible to obtain information on soil anomalies, enabling farmers to take corrective actions in the field. This information is given through a pre-set field map which identifies areas needing a specific treatment, leading farmers to an improved cost-benefit ration for their agricultural crops.
