Organized by the European Space Agency (ESA) and Eidgenössische Techniche Hochschule (ETH), Zurich, Switzerland, the 7th International Colloquium on Scientific and Fundamental Aspects of GNSS is scheduled to take place this September in Zurich.By Inside GNSS
According to a news report,“Sprut-N1 [a] new-generation precision navigation radio system (RNS) has been created for the Russian Navy. It will determine geographic location, speed and altitude with a precision superior to that of GLONASS and GPS. The coordinates are determined by ground stations of the system which transmit coded signals to warships and aircraft. The main advantage against satellite navigation is that the signal of the high-tech system cannot be jammed, the Izvestia daily writes.”By Dana A. Goward
Sokkia has introduced the latest addition to its GNSS integrated receiver line — the GRX3 which is designed to provide a smaller, lighter and fully integrated GNSS solution.
“The multi-constellation GRX3 receiver is built to offer a complete and versatile solution to provide best-in-class positioning performance for a wide variety of precision applications,” said Alok Srivastava, director of product management.By Inside GNSS
Whether you’re talking about a confused adult, a lost child, a hiker in the mountains or even an astronaut in distress, having the world’s best technology available can be the difference between life and death during a search and rescue (SAR) mission.By Stan Goff
At next week’s Precise Time and Time Interval Systems and Applications (PTTI) annual conference sponsored by ION, attendees can take part in a technical program designed to disseminate and coordinate PTTI information at the user level, review present and future PTTI requirements, inform government and industry engineers, technicians, and managers of precise time and frequency technology and its problems, and provide an opportunity for an active exchange of new technology associated with PTTI.By Stan Goff
LabSat by Racelogic is looking forward to sharing news on technology developments and product launches at ION GNSS+ in Miami, Sept. 26-28.
After a year’s development, the company is announcing a major update of its SatGen simulation software for use with LabSat 3 Wideband. SatGen software allows you to create a GNSS RF I&Q or IF data file that can be replayed on a LabSat which is based on a user-generated trajectory file. This allows you to simulate almost any kind of test, at a set time and date, anywhere in the world, according to the company.By Inside GNSS
This year’s Intelligent Transport Systems & Services (ITS) conference will be held in Denmark in September. ITS World Congress will take place from September 17-21 at the Bella Center in Copenhagen. The Congress Theme: “ITS – Quality of Life”, supports the Copenhagen belief that intelligent transport systems are an important means to enhance people’s daily lives through seamless, smart and sustainable mobility solutions.By Inside GNSS

Russia launched a Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket from the Plesetsk space center on Sunday to orbit a GLONASS-M satellite, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a press release this week.By Inside GNSS
Back in December of 2010, Inside GNSS reported that the loss of three GLONASS-M satellites in space resulted from a series of mistakes made by the Russian Energia rocket corporation. Now, more than six years later, Russian prosecutors have wrapped up a criminal case against four employees of Energia allegedly complicit in the crash of the Proton booster with three GLONASS satellites, and they’ve sent the case files to a court of law.By Inside GNSS
The navigation sensors for location-based services (LBS) are complex technical systems. Modern technical science can answer most questions about the optimality of particular position determination methods, signal processing algorithms, electronic circuits or similar well-defined problems, but the rigorous answer to the questions concerning the optimal LBS positioning sensor are still a big problem.By Inside GNSS
In February 2011, Russia launched the first satellite of the GLONASS-K1 series, i.e., SVN (space vehicle number) 801 (R26), which in addition to the legacy frequency division multiple access (FDMA) signals, for the first time was enabled to transmit code division multiple access (CDMA) signals on the GLONASS L3 frequency (1202.025 MHz). Later in 2014, the GLONASS program added SVNs 802 (R17) of series K1 and 755 (R21) of series M, and in 2016, SVN 751 of series M, with the capability of transmitting CDMA L3 signals to the constellation.By Inside GNSS
