GNSS and Hydrography

Multi-interview (1)
None of us can anymore imagine hydrographic work without satellite positioning. Improvements in performance since the first launch at the end of the70s have made it suitable for more and more applications and developments are ongoing. A GPS modernisation programme is upgrading both satellite performance and ground infrastructure, the Russian Glonass modernisation programme will upgrade performance to GPS level, Galileo test satellites GIOVE A and B are performing well and due to become available in a few years, and there is increasing augmentation system coverage. Time for Hydro International to question some experts on these developments in relation to our... (read more)

Upgradeable GNSS Receiver

The C-Nav3050 GNSS receiver has been designed to uprade the C-Nav3050 from a single-frequency receiver to a powerful geodetic instrument. The C-Nav3050 performance upgrade path allows users to adapt to changing requirements via simple software upgrades avoiding the need to purchase costly additional hardware.   C-Nav3050 is powered by the new 66 GNSS channel Sapphire circuit board making the receiver uniquely suited for real-time applications including precise positioning, offshore surveys and engineering, DP input, hydrography (exceeds highest IHO standards), coastal and military applications, marine airborne reconnaissance and survey.   Interference suppression (both in-band & out-band), multipath mitigation, and measurement accuracy...

GNSS and Hydrography

A precise navigation system that has been fully operational only since 1995, yet has had such an impact on hydrography… it looks as if the future of these systems will make interesting reading. GNSS stands for Global Navigation Satellite System and has been dominated by GPS. All hydrographic surveyors will know how this has improved their productivity in the last decade. Today GNSS includes GPS and, to a lesser extent, Glonass. In the future it may well include modernised GPS signals, further Glonass, the European-funded Galileo system, and other satellite-based augmentation services. Not only does this scenario mean ‘more of... (read more)

Improved GNSS Coverage

Veripos announces a major enhancement of its services with an increase in transmission power from Inmarsat’s Atlantic Ocean East Region satellite, resulting in fully redundant High-Power delivery of GNSS augmentation data throughout Europe, Africa and Brazil regions. Running in parallel with Veripos’ existing High-Power satellite delivery service, the upgrade enables enhanced service reception in addition to significantly improved levels of availability and redundancy. The power increase also ensures improved flexibility and independence for users, who now no longer need be reliant upon vessel-borne Inmarsat reception terminals or mini-domes for accessing data from the satellite; instead, small omni-directional antennas can be...
