European GNSS experiences service disruptions

Galileo initial navigation and timing services have experienced ongoing interruptions since 12 July 2019. Update: 17 July 2018 Recovery still in progress; no exact service recovery date GNSS receivers will remain unaffected and compute position and timing using other constellations. Galileo-only GNSS receivers will not produce any navigation message. Galileo still in testing phase, and […]

Hackathon teams put location to work in apps

The NavPro team took the top prize at the Galileo Hackathon by H2020 project GNSS.asia, with their Rail Unfail solution, a GNSS-based maintenance system that geotags potential fault locations on railway tracks. Over 80 programmers from universities and enterprises all over India came together at PES University, Bangalore on 16 and 17 March 2019 to […]

New lightweight GNSS receiver

Carlson recently introduced the Carlson NR3 network rover. Weighing less than a kilogram, the rover delivers highly reliable GNSS RTK for land surveying, GIS, and other data collection uses. Able to be used as a base or rover, it utilises all four satellite constellations and provides triple-frequency tracking on GPS, Glonass and Galileo. Incorporating multipath […]

Flexible rugged handheld data collector

Designed for GIS data collection, inspection and management activities, the Trimble TDC150 is a fully integrated, rugged solution with handheld flexibility, a modern interface with open Android operating system, and scalable high-accuracy positioning for professional field workflows. Its built-in GNSS antenna tracks multiple satellite constellations and enables high-accuracy data logging, from metre level down to […]

Accurate GIS integration acknowledged with award

Eos Positioning Systems has received a 2019 Esri Partner Conference award in recognition of its contributions to Esri mobile applications, for connecting field workers to the enterprise GIS. Esri ArcGIS users benefit from bundling the Eos Arrow GNSS receivers and Esri mobile apps to create real-time, high-accuracy field GIS solutions on consumer devices such as […]

Long range multi-band receiver with long battery life

Emlid recently introduced its Reach RS2 high spec multi-band RTK GNSS receiver. Using L1/L2 bands on GPS, Glonass and BeiDou and L1/L5 on Galileo make it possible to get a fixed solution in seconds, even when the base station is several kilometres away. Its multi-feed antenna with stable phase centre and multipath rejection ensure precise […]

Lightweight compact receiver

The new Pentax G6Ni GNSS base and rover system is designed to meet the needs of today’s surveyors and is based on the manufacturer’s many years of experience in instrument design and construction. The company aims for ease of use, a low cost of ownership and flexibility to accommodate different working environments, and chooses its […]

Combining GNSS and sensor networks for construction efficiency

The construction industry faces a number of challenges. Performing under deadline pressure is just one example. More recently, the focus of attention is compliance with emission values. A geomatics approach could help. The European demolition industry, especially in Germany, must focus on compliance with strict regulations. In the last couple of years it has become […]
