Lockheed Martin Advances GPS Block III Testing

More than 300 engineers, technicians, and support personnel have been working on the GPS III program, including successfully completing space vehicle (SV) 01 testing, at Lockheed Martin’s processing facility near Denver.
The Air Force recently exercised contract options for Lockheed Martin to complete development of eight GPS III space vehicles (GPS III SVs 01 to 08). The eight vehicles are in various stages of assembly, integration and testing, according to the prime contractor for the next-generation spacecraft.

Federal Railroad Administration Announces Status Updates to GPS-Aided Collision Avoidance System

The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) last week released a status update that calls for railroads to rollout Positive Train Control (PTC) technologies, which incorporates GNSS technology, as soon as possible.  The update also underscores the Obama administration’s calls to provide more funding to assist commuter railroads in implementing PTC.

PTC uses GNSS, but mostly GPS, to prevent train-to-train collisions, high-speed derailments, and the unauthorized movement of trains into work zones.

Hemisphere GNSS Launches OEM Boards

Hemisphere GNSS has introduced two new OEM boards, the Eclipse P326 and P327, designed for machine control, land or marine survey, and agriculture applications. The boards support GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and Japan’s QZSS (Quasi-Zenith Satellite System).

The boards are the first within the Eclipse product line to have refreshed low-power capability, reduced size, cost, and weight, the company said. P326 and P327 offer centimeter-level accuracy in either single- or multi-frequencies, using signals from multiple GNSS constellations.  and Atlas-capable modes.

NovAtel Rolls Out Marine GNSS Antennas

NovAtel has released its GPS-173-GGG-N and GPS-713-GGGL-N explosive atmosphere- (ATEX)–qualified GNSS marine antennas with Inmarsat rejection filters.
The triple-frequency antennas are based on the company’s Pinwheel technology. Both antennas receive GPS L1, L2, and L5; GLONASS L1, L2, and L3 ; BeiDou B1 and B2; and Galileo E1 and E5a/b frequencies. The antennas can also receive satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) signals and those from Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) satellites.

GPS OCX to Halt Work September 15 unless Lawmakers Act

A lack of funds will force a shutdown in the development of the GPS new ground system on September 15 unless lawmakers act on a July request to redirect funds, according to the Air Force.

Although the doors likely would only be closed for a little over two weeks, a hiatus would add substantially to the total cost of the GPS Next Generation Operational Control System (OCX) and further delay completion of the already behind-schedule program, the Pentagon has told lawmakers.
