Unlike the ill-fated Orbital Sciences' Antares rocket launch on Wednesday, a United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket has successfully boosted the latest GPS satellite into orbit.
The newest addition to the GPS constellation increases the precision of position, navigation and timing data sent to users around the world.
It's all systems go for the latest Boeing-built GPS IIF global navigation systems satellite, launched on 20 February, with initial signals received.
Airwave UK has launched a location tracking service called Collaborate that will enable emergency services to proactively share their GPS location data.
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority has awarded a contract for the maintenance of its aids to navigation network.
Emergency services agencies and mining operators could soon achieve more reliable GPS fixes in difficult locations, thanks to Australian research.
This system will enable cost-effective global automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) services for air navigation service providers.
The GPS IIF-4 satellite has been launched from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
Europe’s answer to GPS, Galileo, has achieved a fundamental step forward with its first ground position fix using four satellites.
u-blox, a provider of GPS/GNSS and wireless semiconductors, has achieved successful satellite positioning using China’s BeiDou Navigation Satellite System.
‘Global Navigation Satellite System,’ or ‘GNSS’ is a generic term used for a constellation of satellites with worldwide coverage that function to send positioning and timing signals to receivers located on Earth. It is this technology that allows us to perform simple applications from determining location and finding addresses to more sensitive asset tracking and military operations.
The NEO-6V GPS module and UBX-G6010-SA-DR single-chip GPS receiver have been released by u-blox.
The NEO-6V GPS module and UBX-G6010-SA-DR single-chip GPS receiver have been released by u-blox for high-precision vehicle navigation systems.
u-blox has upgraded its latest GPS receiver platform u-blox 6 to give users access to features such as improved sensitivity, lower power consumption, improved anti-jamming performance, jamming detection and shorter time-to-first-fix.
Whether in the R&D lab or in production, the global navigation satellite system (GNSS) solution for the R&S SMBV100A is claimed to set new standards in the field of satellite simulation.
