Getting to E5 With Ease: An AltBOC Double-Sideband Receiver Based on Single-Sideband Correlation

A novel method to track Galileo E5 AltBOC signal phase adjusts and then combines the correlation results of the upper sideband and lower sideband signal to form a double-sideband correlation result, which is equivalent to AltBOC wideband receiving to some extent. Thus, a Galileo E5 wideband receiver can be achieved with only minor modification to a traditional GNSS single-sideband receiver. The method can be further applied to other binary offset carrier (BOC) signals.

European Initiative for the Internet of Things

A consortium is preparing to ramp up production of Geonav IoT, a seamless indoor/outdoor positioning solution for sports applications, asset tracking and aiding drone traffic management. The GNSS module is a high-accuracy, dual-frequency system-on-chip with an integrated, low-power application processor.

A European GNSS Agency by Any Other Name . . .

In May the former European GNSS Agency (GSA) officially rechristened itself as the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA), marking the start of a new era for the EU space effort. Building on the legacy of the GSA, EUSPA will take on more responsibilities to create opportunities for EU citizens and the economy.

Increased Rail Role Urged for Galileo and EGNOS; GNSS Important for Europe’s Green New Deal and Mobility Makeover

“Trains were born in Europe,” opens a recent report on European energy policy from the Jacques Delors Institute in Paris. So also, in some senses, were the Green movement and increased awareness of personal mobility options and potential. For the continent and the European Union community to maintain their world leadership in these two areas, the rail sector must play a greater role than it does presently, argues report author Matthias Ruete. He sees Galileo and EGNOS, the two European GNSS, as essential to this strategy.

European Court of Auditors Says Galileo Should Try Harder

The European Union has not done enough to harness the full potential of its space programs, according to a special report published April 21 by the European Court of Auditors (ECA). While the satellite-based programs Galileo and Copernicus provide valuable services and data, more efforts are needed to capitalize on the significant investment made  — around €18 billion so far —  and to optimize the benefits they bring to citizens and the economy.
