Two More Galileo Satellites Set Healthy

Europe’s latest navigation satellites, launched last December, have been officially commissioned into the Galileo constellation, and are now broadcasting working navigation signals.

Galileos 11 and 12 were launched together on a Soyuz rocket from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana on 17 December.

The satellites’ navigation payloads were submitted to a gamut of tests, centered on the European Space Agency’s Redu center in Belgium, which possesses a 20 meter-diameter antenna to analyze the satellites’ signals in great detail.

NovAtel Launches TerraStar-L Correction Service

NovAtel Inc. has announced the launch of its TerraStar-L, a new 40 centimeter precise point positioning (PPP) correction service. TerraStar-L is a subscription based correction service that delivers GNSS correction data via satellite to users of precision navigation systems.
 
The company says that position accuracy of 40 centimeters makes TerraStar-L ideal for broad accuracy applications such as agriculture, GIS or unmanned vehicle navigation, particularly where tree lines, buildings and other obstructions can be an impediment to continuous positioning.

Russian Aerospace University Release New GPS Easy Suite

Kai Borre, now a professor and senior researcher at Russia’s Samara State Aerospace University, has released a new version of Easy Suite, a collection of Matlab-based scripts and explanatory text that illustrated a variety of common GPS issues.

The first Easy Suite files (easy1–easy10) were published in the periodical GPS Solutions in 2003. Those were augmented by a continuation (easy11–easy18) in Inside GNSS in the years 2009–2010.

EU, UK Resolve Galileo Signal Patent Dispute

The European Union (EU) has reached a deal with the British Ministry of Defense resolving a patent issue that could have limited the adoption of signals from the EU's Galileo satellite navigation constellation.

"The European Commission [EC] has secured access to UK-owned patents related to Galileo signal in space technologies which will allow for their use by chipset and receiver manufacturers on a royalty free basis," according to a joint UL/EC statement supplied by a spokesperson for the UK's Defense Science and Technology Laboratory.

EU Approves New Rule on Personal Data Protection, including Geolocation

Yesterday (April 14, 2016) the European Parliament approved new rules on personal data — including geolocation — that create a high, uniform level of data protection across the European Union.  The measure also sets minimum standards on use of data for policing and judicial purposes.

Galileo & EGNOS Evolution

A global navigation satellite system seems like such solid thing, like the pyramids, perhaps, or a mountain. Permanent, fixed, immutable.

Nor is this surprising. After all, GNSS distinguishes itself from many other technologies of the moment by its grounding in a large and widespread infrastructure: a master control station, launch facilities, far-flung monitoring stations, the space segment with dozens of massive satellites that can operate 20 years or more as did a recently retired GPS Block IIA spacecraft.
