(R)evolution in (G)SDI

Being responsible for R&D in Remote Sensing at the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture, I first met the wider earth-observation community at the conference “Earth Observations and Global Change Decision-Making, 1990: A National Partnership”, where the luncheon speaker was Senator Albert Gore. The global change issue gave birth to the “Mission to Planet Earth”, which called for collaboration between academia and policy makers. The need for a similar level of co-operation between all nations in Geographic Information Systems and Services was articulated some years later, at launch of the Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI) initiative. While US presidential decrees facilitated access... (read more)

Topcon Announced G3 Technology

Topcon Europe Positioning (The Netherlands) has announced Gs, a new technology for satellite positioning systems. This development is a receiver technology with Universal Signal Tracking, a system capable of tracking all signals from all three satellite systems: GPS, Glonass and Galileo. Topcon developed G3 to provide access to 30 Galileo satellites planned for launch by ESA, and new signals that will result from the modernisation of the GPS constellation. When these three satellite systems are fully operational, users of G3 will have access to over 80 satellites. To process multiple signals from multiple satellite systems, Topcon engineered the new Paradigm-G3... (read more)

Topcon 3.4 G3 Firmware

Topcon's Version 3.4 G3 receiver firmware upgrades the performance and usability of all Topcon GNSS receiver platforms including the industry-leading GR-3 and new GRS-1 systems. The 3.4 G3 firmware is the first to be able to automatically detect the make of the network receiver creating corrections for the rover and applying the proper bias to the GLONASS system measurements contained in the GNSS network solution.     Different manufacturers have different offsets (or biases) for the GLONASS constellation of satellites. As each hardware manufacturer outputs different values for GLONASS measurements, it has been a challenge for a customer to mix... (read more)

Landsat 5 Resumes Operations

Landsat 5 is back in operation after imaging operations were temporarily suspended due to technical difficulties. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and NASA engineers were able to adjust the operating procedures for the solar array drive mechanism, providing enough power for the mission to resume normal operations. Consequently, acquisition operations have begun over the conterminous U.S., and the international stations will be brought on line in the coming weeks. The solar array drive mechanism began exhibiting problems in late November 2005. The rotation of the solar array drive became sporadic and the solar array was not able to provide the... (read more)
