Magellan BLADE GNSS Signal Processing

Magellan has announced its exclusive BLADE (Base Line Accurate Determination Engine) technology, a GNSS processing solution that facilitates centimeter-level accuracy for real-time and post-processing surveys and mapping operations. Magellan’s BLADE combines ranging and carrier phase data from two satellite systems, GPS and SBAS, for superior satellite coverage and signal reliability to enable rapid, centimeter-level solutions. Magellan’s BLADE is the first GNSS processing system that uses SBAS ranging and carrier phase measurements in the RTK data processing. These SBAS measurements, which are GPS-like, improve satellite geometry to allow centimeter-level accuracies to be achieved in a shorter time compared to GPS-only algorithms.... (read more)

Insights into Multi-spectral Airborne Lidar

Mr Judah Westby, regional sales manager at Teledyne Optech, will deliver a presentation on the multi-spectral Optech Titan during the Asian Conference on Remote Sensing (ACRS) taking place from 19-23 October 2015 in Quezon City, the Philippines. The presentation, titled ‘New, Flexible Applications with the Multi-spectral Titan Airborne Lidar’, will explore new shallow-water survey data that the Titan provides and what can be done with it. The Titan’s data is showing how its 532nm channel penetrates up to 15 metres deep in clear coastal areas. By using all three channels, Titan can also measure up to 900,000 points per second...
