EGNOS for Aviation

                                                       

The skies above Europe are becoming increasingly congested as our Europe's major airports. This growth in air traffic means all airports need to be safely accessible at all times. EGNOS, the European geostationary navigation overlay service, offers enhanced vertical as well as horizontal precision and integrity, improved safety, accessibility and efficiency for operators, pilots and airports across Europe. EGNOS is a satellite-based augmentation system that improves GNSS positioning using three…

GPS Uses and Modernization

                                                       

GPS or global positioning system, was developed by the United States Air Force and provided free to everyone as the words public utility. today GPS is a critical part of the planet’s infrastructure and the backbone of civil, economic and defense activity everywhere. GPS is the gold standard in global position navigation and timing systems. […]

When and Why GPS Made Free To Use ?

                                                       

Nearly every bit of data we use in our modern devices has a price tag associated with it, but there is one vital piece of technology that many of our devices depend on, that is free. It allows our phones to give us turn-by-turn directions, no matter where we are in the world, and it […]

Navigation Systems For Aircraft – Global Positioning System (GPS)

                                                       

In aircraft, there are many navigation systems, that pilots can use to find there directions and heights. first of these systems is Non Directional Radio Beacon (NDB) and second system is Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range (VOR) . the last on is GPS. The global positioning system or GPS is the United States version of a […]

Navigation Systems For Aircraft – Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range (VOR)

                                                       

There are many navigation systems that used in aircraft. these systems help pilot to find there way, directions and height. In previous post we talked about Non Directional Radio Beacon (NDB) and how pilot use them in aircraft. While NDBs are a dying technology our next nav aid is still very much alive and much […]

EGNOS Satellite Navigation Systems

                                                       

Satellite navigation has changed the world, millions of people all over the world use it every day and their number is constantly rising. At the same time the transportation of goods and people has become a crucial part of our globalized economy. Precise and reliable satellites navigation can help to raise capacity in this field. […]

How Satellites Get And Track Your Exact Location ?

                                                       

GPS satellites are constantly bathing the world in their electromagnetic signally glow, but how EXACTLY do these satellites find you? Saying a satellite finds YOU is very Enemy of the State, but GPS satellites don’t actually track you, they’re simply broadcasting a signal that you pick up. What would be a more accurate way to […]

Which Way Does GPS Work?

                                                       

At over 20,000 kilometres above sea level (20,180 kilometres (12,540 miles)) is a constellation of satellites, each orbiting Earth every 11 hours and 58 minutes. These satellites are continuously beaming data down to us on earth, which in turn is received by devices such as your phone or navigational units in your cars, allowing you […]

How does satellite navigation systems work?

                                                       

In December of 2016 Galileo first went online in the European Union got its own satellite navigation system. it joins the American GPS and the Russian GLONASS and becoming the third system available around the globe. Navigation systems have long become a part of our everyday lives they power the world of logistics, orchestrate, commercial […]

Galileo

What is Galileo?

                                                       

Satellite positioning has become a vital part of our everyday lives and is key for farming, science, precise timing and emergency response. we use it in our phones, cars, planes, trains, ships and thousands of other applications. Initially it was powered by an American system GPS or Global Positioning System a few years later a […]
