Positioning Technology in Australia Gets a $12 Million Boost

With the Australian government’s announcement earlier this month that it would invest $12 million in a two-year program looking into the future of positioning technology in Australia, comes plans for testing of satellite based augmentation systems (SBAS) to be undertaken, and for future applications for all four major modes of transport in Australia, as well as for potential safety, productivity, efficiency and environmental benefits.

ESA Puts Brave Face on Galileo Clock Failures

At the traditional January media briefing in Paris yesterday (January 18, 2017), European Space Agency (ESA) General Director Jan Woerner was forthright in laying out the knowns and unknowns about the failed rubidium and hydrogen maser clocks onboard orbiting Galileo satellites, clocks that are absolutely crucial for accurate positioning.

FCC Seeks Comments on Allowing Galileo Use in U.S.

After a yearslong wait the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is asking for comments on whether it should allow signals from Europe's Galileo satellite navigation system to be used for non-federal applications in the United States. The call for public feedback is part of a process to grant a waiver so that Galileo-capable receivers don't have to be licensed in the United States.

OCX Gains Ground With Help From Private Sector Computer Wizards

Though the schedule is still uncertain, progress is being made on completing the new GPS ground system, said Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James, who credited a crack group of private-sector computer wizards with helping get the program back on course.

Calling the GPS Next Generation Operational Control System (OCX), a "terribly, terribly important program," James said, however, she still did not consider the software-focused effort to be "out of the woods."

Air Force Continues to Test GPS III Satellite

The U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) says it continues to work on GPS III ceramic capacitor testing and plans to have an updated launch schedule published late next month.

As Inside GNSS reported, the first GPS III satellite's delivery, originally scheduled for August, was delayed by four months because of a Lockheed Martin subcontractor's failure to test a ceramic capacitor.

Defense Authorization Bill Signals Full GPS Funding, Pushes GPS Back-Up

Yesterday (December 23, 2016) President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2017, a $619-billion bill with a number of provisions affecting satellite navigation.

The legislation (S. 2943) fully authorizes the administration's requests for all the elements of the GPS program — and signals indirectly that appropriators eventually will provide comparable support — although the NDAA does put additional requirements on those developing the new GPS ground system.

GSA Signs Galileo Service Operator Contract

Following a complex tendering process that began in January 2015, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) awarded the Galileo Service Operator (GSOp) contract, with a value of up to €1.5 billion (US$1.56 billion), to Spaceopal at a special event in Brussels today (December 15, 2016).

The ceremony was featured in an event organized on the occasion of the European Commission’s declaration of Galileo Initial Services.
