What's new at ION GNSS+ 2020?

We are delighted to be exhibiting virtually at the ION GNSS+ 2020. It’s not quite the exhibit we thought we would be delivering and assume it’s not quite the event many thought they would be attending. However, in these unusual times, doing things differently can present some surprising solutions…

Record and Replay GPS III with LabSat

Earlier this month the first GPS III satellite (SVN74) was designated as healthy by the US Air Force Second Space Operations (2SOPS) and is actively transmitting a new GPS civilian signal identified as L1C.

As part of the future-proof technology, all LabSat units can record and replay the L1C signal (transmitted on the L1-band at 1575.42MHz) for receiver and device testing. The increased bandwidth offered by LabSat 3 Wideband enables the whole L1C signal to be captured which ...

A Guide to Galileo

If you are involved in any way with products or services that utilise satellite positioning, navigation or timing, then you will have heard about Galileo, and I’m not talking about the Italian astronomer namesake! However, if you are confused about what Galileo is, why it’s important and how you can get yourself Galileo ready, then you have come to the right place!

Galileo is the European Union’s (EU) global navigation satellite system (GNSS). In December 2016 Galileo officially moved from testing phase to the declaration of Initial Services and is expected to reach Full Operational Capacity (FOC) by the end of 2020.

LabSat Recordings from Galileo Outage

Following the recent week-long outage of Europe's GNSS constellation, Galileo, LabSat are able to offer three one hour long files recorded during the period for test purposes.

The event on July 11 at 01.00 hrs UTC, a result of a 'technical incident' within the ground-based infrastructure caused a temporary interruption to the globally available Galileo navigation and timing service with the exception of Galileo's SAR (Search & Rescue) offering.
