At ENC 2014: A GNSS Wake Up Call for Europe

Among the key topics to come out of this year’s European Navigation Conference (ENC 2014) in Rotterdam is how safe — or unsafe — we really are, and who in Europe cares. The answer is, a lot of people care, but almost no one can do anything about it.

Professor David Last, strategic advisor at the General Lighthouse Authorities of the UK & Ireland, made the case before the conference had even started, at the pre-conference “Resilient PNT Forum.”

ESNC 2014 GNSS Innovation Competition Launches at ENC 2014

The European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC) 2014 will officially kick off on April 15 at the European Navigation Conference (ENC) in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, but the 11th round of the annual event opens Tuesday (April 1).

Launched by Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen in 2004 with three partner regions, the ESNC has grown into a network of GNSS innovation and expertise with more than 20 regions taking part worldwide. Since 2004, the ESNC has received almost 2,400 submissions from 4,263 teams and named 204 award winners.

Munich Summit 2014 Stages Comeback as Europe’s Preeminent GNSS Event

After an organizational hiccup led to its cancellation last year, the “reloaded” Munich Satellite Navigation Summit 2014 successfully re-established the event as Europe’s leading forum for GNSS policy dialog.

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.

EGNOS Capability Enhanced with Addition of New Generation of Satellite Transponders

On Saturday (March 22, 2014) two geostationary L-band transponders, GEO-2s, were successfully launched on board the SES ASTRA 5B satellite from the European Space Port in Kourou, French Guiana.

The new generation transponders will provide higher accuracy positioning signals to both civil and professional users of EGNOS-enabled receivers and ensure the continuity and quality of the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) open service and safety-of-life services for the next 15 years, according to the European GNSS Agency (GSA).

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

New GNSS Signals

The world’s GNSS systems are entering a phase of transformation — modernization of existing systems (the U.S. Global Positioning System and Russia’s GLONASS) and development of new systems (China’s BeiDou and Europe’s Galileo) that benefit from the lessons learned from the original GNSSs.

Notable among the modernization initiatives is an interest in implementing new satellite signal designs. These include the GPS L5, L2C, and L1C signals as well as those signals designed for Galileo and BeiDou. GLONASS designers are also working on modernized signals.

Who’s Your Daddy?

In this article, we will take a look at the various GNSS signals from the perspective of their cost-benefit tradeoffs. First, we’ll look at the evolution of consumer GPS architecture to date — where acquisition speed and sensitivity have been the main drivers of receiver architecture. That architecture has evolved rapidly to take full advantage of the characteristics of the GPS C/A code.
