NextGen’s is years behind schedule and over budget. Is privatization of air traffic control the answer?
Law, Regulation, and Outlook
The Russian Federation has a large body of laws, rules, and regulations dealing with positioning, navigation, and timing in general and GLONASS in particular. This column provides an overview of the associated Russian legal environment, authored by a leader of PNT regulatory framework development at the Roscosmos Central Scientific Research Institute of Machine Building.
She learned how to think like an engineer on a Canadian farm and went on to become a GNSS/
INS integration expert.
Enhancing Multi-Dimensional Signal Quality in GNSS Receivers
Multipath, interference, and ionospheric effects represent some of the leading sources of error affecting GNSS signals. This article proposes a combined architecture for future GNSS receivers that addresses all three.
A Better Way to Do Things?
The commercial airlines, once free of federal regulation, abandoned smaller airports, painfully compressed seating, and attached fees to every formerly free service they could break out from the ticket price.
As users become more reliant on accurate positioning, navigation, and timing, measuring the receiver’s resilience when stressed by real-world threats is becoming as fundamental as any other GNSS performance test.

Better Signals, Inter-Satellite Links, and More
Europe’s GNSS program began planning for its next generation even before the first fully operational capability (FOC) Galileo satellite was launched.
