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.

On the Edge: The Precision to Carry On

March 1, 2015By
Components easily pack into a baseball-style case.

When asked to do a small survey job overseas, we were concerned about shipping bulky and expensive survey equipment. Shipping costs are not trivial. Add to that the real possibility that your survey equipment may be confiscated by the local authorities, as ours was in Djibouti, and the cost of shipping equipment becomes a substantial part of the overall job. There should be alternatives, especially if accuracy requirements are not stringent. read more

Microsemi GNSS Master Solves Small-Cell Synchronization Issue

February 26, 2015By

Microsemi Corporation is offering a new Integrated GNSS Master (IGM) solution for small-cell synchronization. The IGM is the company’s first solution that fully integrates a 1588v2 PTP grandmaster with a GNSS receiver and antenna in a small, fully contained package, designed to mount indoors. The Microsemi IGM solves the challenge of indoor synchronization, which has been a significant hurdle for cost-effective small... read more
