Innovation: Getting there safely with chip-scale atomic clocks

October 12, 2016By and
FIGURE 2. Test track. The yellow ellipse marks a treed lane with signal obstructions.

Better GNSS Navigation and Spoofing Detection with Chip-Scale Atomic Clocks It’s all physics. How things work, that is. You’ve heard me say that before in this column, but I suppose I’m a little biased (or realistic) as my first degree is in physics — applied physics, to be more precise. Mind you, some chemists might disagree that it’s all down to... read more

Launchpad: Multi-frequency GNSS RF front-ends

September 26, 2016By

4- and 7-channel research and evaluation platforms The NT1065_USB3 and Multi_GNSS_Grabber_Board are research and evaluation platforms for professional navigation receivers, based on NTLab’s RF front-end integrated circuits: the NT1065 “Nomada” (4-channel GPS/GLONASS/Galileo/BeiDou/IRNSS/QZSS, L1/L2/L3/L5 band) and NT2024 (3-channel GPS/GLONASS L1/L2 and S-band). Both boards support USB3 connection, thus allowing the user to process captured satellite signals on a PC. NT1065_USB3 Multi-band... read more

Galileo Initial Services looming

September 26, 2016By

With Galileo Initial Services at last on the horizon and a quadruple satellite launch scheduled for November, here’s hoping that Europe’s GNSS constellation will be delivering limited, but reliable, global PNT services before the year is out. The four Galileo satellites for Arianespace’s first Ariane 5 mission for the constellation are being prepared at ESA’s launch facility in French Guiana.... read more
