Dovis-Fig1-excerpt

By Fabio Dovis When subjected to very strong interference, a GNSS receiver can be totally blinded and stop working. This is often the scope of intentional jammers. However, in a number of cases the presence of interference is severe enough to significantly decrease receiver performance, but not so much as to make the receiver lose its lock on the satellite signals... read more

GSA’s 2015 Report Dives Deep into Global GNSS Market

March 27, 2015By
FIGURE 2. SUPPORTED CONSTELLATION BY RECEIVERS Chart shows the percentage of available
receivers capable of tracking signals from one GNSS (such as GPS only), two GNSS (GPS
+ Galileo, GPS + GLONASS, GPS + BeiDou), three GNSS (GPS + Galileo + GLONASS, GPS +
Galileo + BeiDou, GPS + GLONASS + BeiDou) or tracking signals from all constellations at
the same time. The percentages add up to 100 percent. We can conclude that almost 60
percent of all available receivers, chipsets and modules are supporting a minimum of two
constellations, showing that multi-constellation is becoming a standard feature across all
market segments.

Geomatics Offers Portable Surveying and Mapping System

March 3, 2015By

Editor’s note: GPS World explored use of the new system from Geomatics in the March 2015 issue. Geomatics USA from Gainesville, Fla., has designed a precision surveying and mapping system that can be easily stowed in an overhead compartment for airline travel. Surveyors can fit everything needed for important mapping and surveying jobs into a baseball-style bag, including tripods. The compact, light-weight system offers differential sub-foot accuracy.... read more
