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.”

New GLONASS-M Satellite Begins Commissioning

A modernized GLONASS satellite launched on last week has begun its commissioning phase in slot 18 of the Russian GNSS constellations orbital plane 3. It was the first successful GLONASS launch since the loss of three spacecraft in the crash of a Proton rocket last July.

Telemetry communications were established shortly after the GLONASS-M spacecraft (designated GLONASS number 754) reached its orbit following its launch March 23 (2:54 a.m. Moscow time on March 24), from Plesetsk space center on a Soyuz-2.1b rocket.
