Turbulence not the culprit for Northern Lights’ effect on GNSS

March 14, 2017By

Researchers at the University of Bath, U.K., have gained new insights into the mechanisms of the Northern Lights, providing an opportunity to develop better satellite technology that can negate outages caused by the natural phenomenon. Previous research has shown that the natural lights of the Northern Lights — also known as Aurora Borealis — interfere with GNSS signals. Plasma turbulence within the Northern... read more

Geoscience Australia, Lockheed collaborate on multi-GNSS SBAS research

February 13, 2017By

Geoscience Australia, an agency of the Commonwealth of Australia, and Lockheed Martin have entered into a collaborative research project to show how augmenting signals from multiple GNSS constellations can enhance positioning, navigation and timing for a range of applications. Other partners are Inmarsat and GMV. The research project aims to demonstrate how a second-generation Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) testbed can... read more
