Chronos Welcomes Ofcom Licensing for GPS/GNSS Repeaters in the UK

August 7, 2012By

Chronos Technology, a specialist supplier of GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo) products and services, welcomes the decision by the UK regulator Ofcom on June 20 to implement a licensing regime for the use of GNSS repeaters in the UK. GNSS repeaters provide coverage for the use and testing of GNSS technology inside buildings where the GNSS signals do not normally reach. Until the recent decision by Ofcom, the use of this repeater technology in the UK was not permitted except in specialized (normally military) situations.

GNSS technology can also be used for resource management, civil engineering and military applications. read more
