GPS Networking Offers EMI Shielding for GPS/GNSS Splitters

From Inside GNSS News. Published on 04.09.2014.

GPS Networking, headquartered in Pueblo West, Colorado, has announced that it now offers electro-magnetic interference (EMI) shielding on its GPS/GNSS Splitters.

Interference between electronic components is an increasing issue as more wireless components are used to complete broadband systems. Reducing disturbance among separate frequencies through EMI shielding is a critical deliverable for project managers, says Eileen O’Halloran, general manager at GPS Networking

From Inside GNSS News. Published on 03.09.2014.

An independent inquiry commission chaired by Peter Dubock, began its work on August 28, 2014, its task: establish the circumstances of the so-called “major anomaly” that resulted in two Galileo satellites being placed into incorrect orbits last week.

The inquiry commission will identify root causes and associated aggravating factors, offering recommendations to correct the problem(s) and to allow for a safe return to flight for Soyuz launchers from the Guiana Space Center.

Galileo Teams Investigating 'Injection Anomaly' of FOC Satellites

From Inside GNSS News. Published on 23.08.2014.

European Space Agency (ESA) and industry officials said today (August 23, 2014) that they are investigating Arianespace’s announcements about anomalies in the orbit injection of the Galileo full operational capability (FOC) satellites launched Friday.

“Complementary observations gathered after separation of the Galileo FOC M1 satellites on Soyuz Flight VS09 have highlighted a discrepancy between targeted and reached orbit,” according to a Friday statement by Arianespace, which leads the industry team handline the launch of the first Galileo FOCs.

Europe Puts First FOC Satellites into Orbit

From Inside GNSS News. Published on 22.08.2014.

After 20 years of discussion, conceptualization, political struggle, and technical reverses, Europe has placed its first two fully operational capability (FOC) Galileo satellites into orbit today (August 22, 2014).

The Galileo 5 and 6 satellites were carried aloft on a Soyuz rocket from Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana at 12:27 GMT (14:27 CEST, 09:27 a.m. local time). They join the Galileo in-orbit validation (IOV) satellites 1–4, one of which has been offline since May.
