Summer vacation is over. Time to go back to work.
On Board Resurs-P LEO Satellite
The Russian Federal Space Agency is evaluating methods for improving the GLONASS performance based on the current generation of satellites. This includes assessing the performance of the ground reference network as well as using FDMA signals to precisely determine the orbits of a remote sensing satellite.
Enabling Proximity Detection While Preserving Location Privacy
Proximity-based services are commonly used to help a user interact with other users nearby. However, these services endanger the privacy of users when the location information is provided to the service provider. This article proposes a novel private proximity detection scheme based on partial GPS measurement information.
Theory and Field Trial Results for Aerial Applications of Anti-Jam and Spoof Detection
Introducing a low complexity mechanism for generating radiation pattern nulls and beams without requiring any additional hardware or signal processing blocks beyond those already inherent to GPS receiver systems.
Urban localization using GNSS is notoriously imprecise due to blockage of satellite signals by tall structures. However, this very phenomenon of blockage can be exploited to derive valuable location information by “shadow matching” against 3D maps of the environment.
Regional Systems Are Not Waiting Idly in the Wings
As last year’s disappearance of Flight MH370 reminded us, the Indian
Ocean region in which IRNSS operates is large and largely unchartered.
So, too, the Western Pacific surveyed by QZSS.
Achieving the worklife/family balance
I Love My Job, But..., Mediterranean Rescue, Predicting Tremors and Robot, Beware Human.
Assured Service, GNSS Backup
For all its remarkable qualities, GNSS has not turned out to be a one-size-fits-all panacea. A search for “just-in-case” options is under way.
