3rd Generation RTK S760

SOUTH has released the 3rd generation RTK product, S760. With dual-frequency mainboard and antenna, S760 enjoys a high speed and great effectiveness of GPS & GLONASS satellites tracking, which is not different compared to earlier RTK models, yet this handy unit highlights convenience and flexibility in practice. A single rugged unit, independent to any external device, has integrated antenna, mainboard and PDA all together, which is an ideal high precision handheld GIS data collector in urban and rural areas. When S760 connects an external dual-frequency GPS+GLONASS antenna via a carbon fibre pole plus bracket holder, it can offer RTK solutions... (read more)

Dr Pratap Misra Receives Prestigious Kepler Award

The Institute of Navigation’s (ION) Satellite Division awarded Dr Pratap Misra its Johannes Kepler Award on 12 September 2014 at the ION GNSS+ Conference (Tampa, Florida, USA) for his contributions to satellite navigation education, the understanding of GLONASS, and receiver-autonomous integrity monitoring. Dr Misra is credited with tracking GLONASS satellites using the AF Deep Space Tracking Network to determine their orbits in the coordinate frame used by GPS, while the satellites broadcast their positions in the Soviet coordinate frame. Dr Misra is recognised for his ground-breaking work on navigation with combination of GPS and GLONASS signals and is the Western... (read more)

Applanix Announces Next Generation GNSS Receiver Module

Applanix has announced the availability of the Trimble BD960 GNSS receiver module for its POS AV airborne position and orientation system. The BD960 is a next generation, high-performance receiver capable of receiving a wide-range of GNSS signals, including GPS L1/L2, L2C, L5, and GLONASS L1/L2. With the GNSS module, POS AV products now support GPS L1/L2 and GLONASS L1/L2 processing, both in real-time and post-mission. The end result is improved operational efficiency and robustness for direct georeferencing of sensors employed for airborne mapping, including LIDAR, SAR, and digital or film cameras. The processing of signals from GPS and GLONASS satellites... (read more)

Javad TRIUMPH-VS Elimintates Interferences

Javad has launched during INTERGEO the TRIUMPH-VS, a complete 5Hz RTK Base OR Rover System featuring a 216-channel GNSS receiver. A new and patented option In-Band Interference Rejection that defends the reception against signals that fall within the GNSS band. The technique suppresses multiple interferences from for example TV and radio stations by up to 60dB, improving the quality of the operation. With this device, JAVAD introduces other exclusive options such as .2mm dynamic correction for GLONASS signals and audio and visual aids and corrections. The receiver includes GPS L1/L2/L2C/L5; GLONASS L1/L2; 5Hz RTK/DGPS Rover; RTK/DGPS Base and 5Hz Raw... (read more)

USA and Russia Discuss GPS-GNSS Co-operation

The USA and the Russian Federation intend to begin preliminary discussions on an agreement for co-operation between the GPS and Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS). Both countries intend to work together to maintain compatibility and promote interoperability of the two systems. To this end, both sides intend to establish working groups on matters of development and use of GLONASS and GPS and their respective augmentations. Delegations of the two governments met in Washington DC last December to continue discussions on matters relating to this co-operation. (read more)
