Spirent, WMG and Chronos Technology Collaborating to Improve Intelligent Vehicle Location Systems

The need for smart devices to have a highly accurate self-awareness of their own location, and the location of other smart devices around them is becoming increasingly important. Many devices rely on a singular location technology (typically GPS), which is one type of the wider eco system of GNSS. These systems, while becoming more capable, still suffer at times from the deployment environment, typically in urban areas where buildings and other cityscape features interfere with the signal.

Harris Corp. Delivers Advanced Environmental Monitoring Sensor for Japanese Satellite

Harris Corporation has delivered an environmental monitoring sensor for the Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite-2 (GOSAT-2), which will significantly enhance Japan’s ability to monitor greenhouse gases from space.

The Harris-built TANSO-FTS-2 (Thermal and Near Infrared Sensor for Carbon Observation-Fourier Transform Spectrometer-2) will measure greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The newly built instrument will collect high-spectral resolution data of the Earth in five bands, which enables measurement during daylight and darkness. The instrument’s unique intelligent pointing system identifies, in real time, cloud-free areas of the atmosphere – greatly increasing the amount of useable data, according to the company.

Joint Effort Between SDX and Talen-X Enables GNSS Simulation for Anechoic Chambers

SDX has announced a new option that enables radiated emissions testing in anechoic chambers, with support for up to 16 dual-frequency antennas. This is achieved by harnessing the power of multiple graphics processing units (GPUs) simultaneously. This new SDX update brings a host of features carefully designed to improve the setup and operation of advanced GNSS simulations in anechoic chambers.
