First Position Fix with IRNSS

Successful Proof-of-Concept Demonstration

Earlier this year, India’s regional navigation constellation, IRNSS, demonstrated independent three-dimensional position determination for the first time using a combination of geostationary and geosynchronous satellites now in orbit. The navigation software team from the Indian Space Research Organization describes this achievement.

Processor Technology for GNSS Software Receivers in the Year 2015

Recent increases in computational power can be used to build more efficient GNSS software receivers. Experimental benchmarks show how well the currently available technology can be exploited for these purposes. A personal computer (maximum number of channels greater than 1,000) and an embedded board (maximum number of channels less than 100) are tested under various scenarios, with promising results for future applications.
