Septentrio PolaRx2 Receiver Orbits Earth on Board TET-1 Satellite

September 18, 2013By
The TET-1 Satellite has Septentrio on board.

Septentrio announced today that a PolaRx2 receiver has reached more than 330 hours of successful operation on board “Technologie-Erprobungs-Träger 1” (TET-1), the first satellite of the German On-Orbit-Verification program. The Septentrio receiver is the backbone of the Navigation and Occultation Experiment (NOX) developed by German Aerospace Center (DLR). The purpose of the experiment is to prove the suitability of commercial-off-the-shelf... read more

In the more than 100+ articles I’ve written for GPS World magazine over the past seven years, I don’t think I’ve ever written about a new product introduction like you will see below. I tend to focus on GNSS and geospatial technologies rather than a brand-specific products and services. In fact, last week I had an outline prepared for my... read more

Generating Distorted GNSS Signals Using a Signal Simulator
In this month’s column, our authors discuss a set of GPS and Galileo evil-waveform experiments they have carried out with an advanced GNSS RF signal simulator. Their results will help to benchmark the effects of distorted signals and perhaps lead to improvements in GNSS signal integrity. read more

The System: An L5 Surprise

August 1, 2010By

Researchers at the German Aerospace Center say they have found a small variance in the L5 signal on IIF-1. The signal variation results in no more than a 5-centimeter error with a predictable periodicity of about six hours. The GPS Wing is studying the issue and expects to resolve it before setting the satellite healthy, in another month or so according to the schedule. read more
