Galileo Grows by Two

A Soyuz launcher operated by Arianespace and commissioned by ESA lifted off with the pair of 715 kg satellites from French Guiana on December 5. The two join 26 Galileo satellites in the orbiting constellation that now provide Initial Services.

BeiDou Conducts Laser Communication Experiment, Steps Ahead of U.S. — Could Improve SatNav Accuracy

In a race with the U.S. to develop a laser communications network in space, China’s BeiDou GNSS has conducted an inter-satellite and satellite-ground station experiment using using lasers rather than the usual radio signals. The technology could potentially transmit data a million times faster than by radio signal to almost any location. Some experts say it could increase satnav accuracy by a factor of 6 to 40

Russia Explodes Own Satellite with Ground-Based Missile; Spokesperson Threatens GPS

Russia conducted an unannounced direct-ascent anti-satellite (DA-ASAT) missile test on November 15, targeting and exploding its own defunct satellite Tselina-D. After the test, Russian television executive and spokesperson Dmitry Konstantinovich Kiselyov, head of the official Russian government-owned international news agency Rossiya Segodnya, reportedly said on live tv that this demonstrated that Russia could and would if necessary target U.S. GPS satellites, thus “blinding” its military forces.

Evaluating LEO Constellations for Global Satellite Navigation Service

Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites are being launched regularly into space to create satellite constellations for a variety of purposes: communication, surveillance, providing Internet service and more. Global satellite navigation service is provided by satellites in higher orbits, mi-Earth orbit (MEO) roughly 25,000–27,00 kilometers above the Earth. Could satellites in LEO be used to provide global satellite navigation?

Inertial in the Field: Webinar Now Available On Demand

High standards for technology in the lab and in the factory are all very fine, but what matters most is how it works in industrial application. We take a close-up look at inertial measurement and inertial navigation in such real-world cases as
• oil and gas pipeline inspection,
• stabilization of optical camera platforms and
• autonomous cargo transport.

Galileo Authentication Signal Open for Testing; First Results

A research team at the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS) in Germany authenticated Galileo’s live Open Service Navigation Message Authentication (OSNMA) signal on November 16. The team used a GNSS receiver jointly developed with TeleOrbit GmbH, the compact GNSS Receiver with Open Software Interface (GOOSE).
