GNSS for Emergency 112 Mobile Caller Location in Europe

Europeans agree — assisted GNSS or A-GNSS provides the best means for locating emergency callers using mobile phones. Although the question of who should pay is remains to be answered, new regulations aimed at enabling the service now seem inevitable.

FAA UAV Exemption Process Is in Place, Though Perhaps Imperfect

Companies hungry to offer commercial services in the United States with unmanned aircraft finally have something to chew on.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has laid out a process whereby a carefully selected set of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) may be granted an exemption to do for-pay flights before the first broad rules for U.S. flying unmanned aircraft are finalized.

An Airborne Experimental Test Platform

Although most UAV applications to date have appeared in the military and law enforcement sectors, many important civilian applications exist for these vehicles. Such uses include wildfire surveys, transportation infrastructure inspection, and precision agriculture. Recent advances in guidance, navigation and control (GNC) technology have made these civilian applications possible.

Spirent Launches All-GNSS, Multi-Regional/SBAS Simulator

Spirent has launched a new generation of multi-frequency, multi-GNSS RF constellation simulator — the Spirent GSS9000.

The GSS9000 supports an extensive range of constellation configurations, from GPS L1 through to multi-GNSS, multi-frequency systems, including classified/restricted signals. Configurations are available that support multi-antennas and multi-vehicles, for example differential GNSS, attitude determination, interference/jamming and spoofing, and controlled reception pattern antenna (CRPA) testing.

u-blox Releases 4-System Antenna Module

Swiss-based u‑blox has introduced the CAM-M8Q GPS/GLONASS/BeiDou/QZSS antenna module. The module integrates a u-blox M8 satellite receiver IC plus SAW filter, LNA, TCXO, RTC, passives, and a pre-tuned GNSS chip antenna in a 9.6 x 14.0 x 1.95 mm package.

According to the company, the surface-mount antenna module combines low power consumption with high-sensitivity, high jamming immunity, and concurrent GNSS operation (GPS/GLONASS, GPS/BeiDou, or GLONASS/BeiDou), offering a drop-in solution product designers and system integrators.

Paternity Suit

Don’t be misled by the title. This is not another round of speculation about who should be proclaimed the rightful “Father of GPS.”
