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...

ION GNSS 2010 Awards

The Institute of Navigation’s (ION) Satellite Division awarded Ali Broumandan of the University of Calgary its Bradford W. Parkinson Award at the ION GNSS Conference last month in Portland, Oregon. Dr Todd Walter received the Johannes Kepler Award for his contributions to space-based augmentation systems. The Bradford W. Parkinson Award is granted annually to recognise an outstanding graduate student in the field of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), and is presented in honour of Bradford W. Parkinson for his leadership in establishing the US Global Positioning System and for his work on behalf of the Satellite Division of The Institute... (read more)

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)

Brazilian RTK GNSS Receiver

GEO TAG Engenharia (Brazil) has introduced the new multi-constellation RTK GNSS receiver GEO TAG MT.Pro. A pair of Trimble's Maxwell 6 chips provide most accurate and precise positioning and navigation and capable of receiving GPS, GLONASS and Galileo (-ready) satellite signals. The MT.Pro receiver is created for professional and precise positioning applications include land/marine surveying, construction and machine control, agriculture and infrastructure monitoring.   The GEO TAG MT.Pro receiver is designed to allow centimetre-level positioning and dual-antenna inputs for precise heading.   Other key features are high-precision, differential positioning accuracy subfoot-level and subdecimetre-level with OmniSTAR; heading accuracy up to 0.05°;...

Veripos GNSS Visualisation Software

Veripos, UK, has extended its range of proprietary software with the introduction of Quantum, a suite of visualisation modules providing a user interface for delivery of next-generation services and features. Designed to operate with all current Veripos positioning options including its latest Apex5 multi-constellation PPP service, the software has been developed with significant input from a wide range of users by way of simplifying any system configuration while easing methods of interpretation. Other advances include integral diagnostic functions for simple identification of any operational problems together with indications of likely solutions. Visualisation modules can also be operated independently without affecting... (read more)
