GSAB Project Demonstrates Assisted Port Operations Solution

The Grimaldi Satellite Autonomous Berthing (GSAB) project, funded by the European Space Agency’s NAVISP program, has developed a system enabling automatic, high-precision port berthing operations in large (200m) carrier ships. The system provides ships’ captains and crew with an overview of ship conditions in real time in port settings, including detailed information on maneuvering operations to be performed.

Weekend Read: Technical University of Denmark Researchers Use GNSS Data to Monitor Ice Loss in Greenland

Researchers at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) have developed a method to monitor daily ice loss in Greenland using data from 61 GPS stations installed on the bedrock around the island. This approach allows for precise tracking of ice melt, providing day-by-day data that enhances understanding of sudden changes in ice mass, especially during the summer.

Galileo GNSS Satellites Successfully Launched Into Orbit by SpaceX

Galileo satellites GM25 and FM27 were successfully launched into orbit from Kennedy Space Center in Florida on April 27. Thierry Breton, Commissioner of the Internal Market of the European Union, confirmed via X, “2 new Galileo satellites successfully launched last night. Awaiting Ariane6, the 2024 launches are crucial for Galileo’s resilience, robustness and continuity of its civilian & military applications. Galileo deployment will continue in 2025.”

Getting Galileo Back to Space

This year’s European Space Policy Conference in Brussels saw familiar faces talking about new and unfamiliar things. While Galileo continues to perform well, delivering an ever-widening range of services, the problem of how to get Galileo satellites into space has forced the Union to take unprecedented, forward-thinking and, for some, uncomfortable steps.
