Weather Delays Galileo Launch

Due to unfavorable weather conditions of the Guiana Space Center near Kourou, French Guiana, Arianespace decided to postpone the launch scheduled for today (August 21, 2014) of Soyuz flight VS09 carrying Europe's fifth and sixth Galileo satellites — and the first of the fully operational capability (FOC) spacecraft.
A tropical disturbance in the Atlantic Ocean nearing the Lesser Antilles (see NOAA satellite image) could potentially developed into a tropical depression or tropical storm.

As Galileo FOCs Near Launch, EC Holds Public Consultation on Open Service ICD

The European Commission (EC) has opened a public consultation on a newly revised version of the Galileo Open Service Signal in Space Interface Control Document (OS SIS ICD).
The consultation will take place through September 22, overlapping the scheduled first launch of fully operational capability (FOC) Galileo satellites on August 21. Details of the consultation process can be found on the EC Directorate-General for Enterprise website.

Galileo Team Reports Successful Tracking of Encrypted Commercial Service Signals

The European GNSS Agency (GSA) announced today (July 29, 2014) that a recent 10-day test has successfully tracked and demodulated data from encrypted signals of the Commercial Service (CS) from available Galileo satellites.

Using receivers located in Tres Cantos, Spain, and Poing, Germany, the Early Proof of Concept (EPOC) team tracked encrypted Galileo E6-B and E6-C signals. Non-encrypted E6-B and E6-C signals have previously been tracked.

GNSS Hotspots

Portland, Oregon USA

√ Adidas has designed every official World Cup ball since 1970. And that’s not all! The Adidas Innovation Team in Portland, Oregon, spent 4 years on a smart soccer ball with a “six-axis MEMS accelerometer sensor package” that can detect speed, spin, strike and flight path data and whip it on over to the special GPS app on your iPhone. The app interprets the data for you, coaches you, and keeps a video to show your friends. On sale now for only $299.

GNSS Position Estimates

Q: How do measurement errors propagate into GNSS position estimates?

A: Not surprisingly, GNSS positioning accuracy is largely dependent on the level of measurement errors induced by orbital inaccuracies, atmospheric effects, multipath, and noise. This article discusses how, specifically, these errors manifest as position errors.
