IGS Launches Real-Time Service for High-Precision GNSS

The International GNSS Service (IGS), a worldwide federation of agencies involved in high-precision GNSS) applications, has announced the launch of its Real-Time Service (RTS).

The RTS is a global scale GNSS orbit and clock correction service that enables real-time precise point positioning (PPP) and related applications requiring access to IGS low latency products. The RTS is offered in beta as a GPS-only service for the development and testing of applications.

Furuno to Launch New Multi-GNSS Receiver Chips, Modules This Summer

Furuno Electric Company has announced that new multi-GNSS receiver chips eRideOPUS 6 and eRideOPUS 7 — with active anti-jamming, multipath mitigation, and dead reckoning interfaces — will be available to the market beginning August 2013.

The eRideOPUS 7 receiver chip can process GPS and GLONASS signals (with a combined antenna), satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) transmissions, Japan’s Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS), and — with a software update —Galileo signals. The eRideOPUS 6 is not GLONASS-capable.

Move to Set Privacy Rules for Operating Unmanned Systems Gathers Steam

The prospects for the rapid integration of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) into the day-to-day work of farmers, pipeline operators and firemen seem to be dimming amidst a hail of privacy legislation.

Virginia is poised to enact a two-year moratorium on the use of UASs, roughly 30 other states are weighing legislation and nearly half a dozen federal bills limiting the use of UASs have already been introduced in Congress just two months into the new session.

Letters: Get a Start on GNSS Interoperability Now

“The GNSS Quartet” (January-February 2013, Inside GNSS, aptly named and coauthored by Glen Gibbons, Dee Ann Divis, and Peter Gutierrez) is reminiscent of Dr. Brad Parkinson’s observation about “interchangeability” at his ION GNSS 2011 plenary session. With interoperability taken to its logical level of completion, a position solution should be readily obtainable from four satellites, each belonging to a different constellation.

Civil Use of UAS

Few domestic issues have evoked such excitement — and controversy — in recent years as a 2012 congressional mandate to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to expand civil use of unmanned aerial systems in the National Airspace System (NAS).

Congress, States Proposes Bills on Location Privacy, UAVs

Congress is moving to limit the sharing of geolocation information.

The Online Communications and Geolocation Protection Act (HR 983), introduced on March 6, addresses a privacy loophole created by services like Gmail and social networking sites. Though law enforcement must get a warrant to access an archive of e-mail stored on your computer, the same protections do not exist for information voluntarily given to a third party.
