Cover Story


Development of a High Accuracy Pointing System for Maneuvering Platforms

When it comes to providing attitude or designing a pointing system—say,
for controlling an airborne antenna or guiding a tank–GPS can use some
help. Researchers at SRI developed a MEMS IMU combination that provides
suitable accuracy.

GNSS Indoors — Fighting The Fading, Part 1

The ability to receive low-power GNSS signals inside buildings wins the gold medal for product designers and manufacturers who can achieve it. The authors share results of a new test that creates an original model of signal behavior in indoor spaces of different shapes and material. First of two parts.

Mathematical Models and GNSS Interference

What does “geometry-based” and “geometry-free” mean in the context of GNSS?

What are the main classes of interference that can degrade the GNSS signals? What are the possible countermeasures?  

Thinking Aloud

The Easy Part

All four major GNSS programs seem to have reached the same passage —not
quite an impasse, but a definite narrowing of the political space.
