Satnav watching over rugby players

13.12.2019 13:59   Playing rugby

As France’s top rugby players scrum, run and tackle they are being tracked by more than just TV cameras and the watching eyes of the crowd. Satnav-based tracking devices between their shoulder blades are keeping tabs on their position and performance – and helping to safeguard their health.

Join the future of navigation at ESA’s NAVISP Industry Days

19.11.2019 14:24   NAVISP

The ability to know where you are and where you’re going is central to today’s society, and will only grow more crucial in future. ESA’s NAVISP R&D programme is building on Europe’s technical accomplishments to develop new future positioning, navigation and timing technologies and services – its annual Industry Days next January will give a snapshot of the programme’s progress.

Satnav in the landscape harnessed for global error mapping

31.10.2019 15:01   Satnav signals from satellites

There are at the moment more than five billion satnav devices on Earth. Along with smartphones and mobile receivers, this figure includes networks of fixed receiver stations, used to boost service accuracy. A new ESA-led project will harness these networks to provide an ongoing overview of satnav performance from the global to national to regional scale.

New maps of Earth from reflected satnav, invented at ESA

Your phone or satnav receiver routinely picks up signals from navigation satellites in order to tell you precisely where you are. But have you ever thought what happens to those satnav signals afterwards? A foresighted ESA inventor had the idea of using them as a tool for observing the Earth.

Navigate through satnav with the ESA–JRC Summer School

6.4.2018 10:16  

This year’s ESA–Joint Research Centre International Summer School on Global Navigation Satellite Systems is taking place in July, in the spa resort of Loipersdorf, Austria.

The 10-day course will cover all aspects of satellite navigation, up to and including the development of a potential satnav-based business.

Participants will receive a full-spectrum overview of satellite navigation, starting from the theoretical basis of Global Navigation Satellite Systems, their signals and processing by receivers, and how the final ‘position–navigation–time’ solution is worked out. On the practical side, exercises will include receiving signals from Galileo and its fellow satnav systems.

World of Galileo

28.3.2018 15:30  

Galileo’s initial services have been running for more than 15 months now: signals from the satellites in space are routinely serving users all across the world. The functioning of Galileo is dependent on a global network of ground stations, its current extent shown in the map here.
