New Trimble GNSS Product Upgrades Consumer Devices for Professional Applications

Trimble introduced today (February 10, 2015) the R1 GNSS receiver, a pocket-sized, standalone, single-frequency (L1/G1) receiver that works with iOS, Android or Window mobile handhelds, smart phones, and tablets using Bluetooth connectivity.
 
When paired with a smart device, the receiver/antenna combination adds GNSS geo-location capabilities to transform consumer devices into high-accuracy mobile data collection systems. The 44–parallel channel receiver can track GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, and Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) signals.

ICAO Recommends New Flight-Tracking Performance Standard

Member states of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) recommended the adoption of a new 15-minute aircraft tracking standard yesterday (February 3, 2015) during discussions among more than 850 participants to the UN aviation body’s 2015 High Level Safety Conference in Montreal, Canada.

The recommended standard is performance-based and not prescriptive, meaning that global airlines would be able to meet it using the available and planned technologies and procedures they deem suitable.

The Party Crashers

These days getting the United States, Russia, China, and Europe to agree on a common policy seems to be an increasingly rare event.

That’s why the long-standing comity among system operators in the GNSS sphere is particularly notable and welcome. “Interoperable and compatible” is the first principle espoused by the four nations under the aegis of the International Committee on GNSS.
