The United States is the only country that distinguishes between the "upper" and "lower" L-band. All passengers on board the and the two pilots in the Cessna were killed.
Whither EU Space Programmes? Good grief, it has been a wild week or two. However, one could argue that non-membership of the EU might diminish its voice and could require a higher financial contribution.
Bids for the next Galileo satellite purchase contracts are due to be submitted in mid-July, and the European Commission has indicated that it will consider them purely on commercial terms.
And also for the Commission. There would, in my opinion, be an unwarranted technical risk in doing anything else. However, for the next generation it is open season of course. Jewel in the Crown at Risk.
This is the unique feature of Galileo that is of great interest to civil and military authorities in Europe and beyond, due to its more robust encrypted signal and its potential anti-jamming and spoofing characteristics. No final decision on this has yet been made. In addition, the UK involvement in research and innovation activities around PRS may well be curtailed, even if other work on Galileo projects is not.
For example, Mark Dumville and colleagues at Nottingham Scientific Limited NSL have recently provided some very impressive demonstrations of cloud-based PRS applications including the first demonstration of the implementation of PRS authentication for an offender tag that was demonstrated using live Galileo and GPS signals.
The demonstration provided real-time authentication flag generation, release and delivery to users. And a third demonstration illustrated the use of cloud-based PRS on a drone.
Personally as a British citizen, and one who has spent the last 15 years in and out of the Brussels bubble, I see the EU referendum result as a national tragedy of epic proportions; and one that has been a long time in the making.
Many global commentators are saying the UK has shot itself in the foot; sadly, in my opinion, it is much, much worse than that. United Europe The referendum news has certainly put a dampener on what I was hoping to be an optimistic, forward-looking article following the European Space Solution event in The Hague at the end of May.
This was the fourth European Space Solutions conference and exhibition, attracting a large, global audience of policy-makers and industry players.
At a press briefing just before the event kicked off on 30 May, and after an informal EU competitiveness ministerial council, Dutch minister for Economic Affairs Henk Kamp spoke about the ideas behind the forthcoming EU Space Policy. The policy will look to achieve three clear objectives: She mentioned more than once that she is looking for long-term sustainability for the sector: My interpretation of this is that public money from Europe may not be as plentiful as previously, and the Commission will be looking for greater leverage of its tax Euros — that is, the private sector will need to invest more.
She saw huge opportunities as the cost of entry to the sector diminished, however private investment was still a problem. There was not enough in the EU and this must change.
The Commission is aiming to create an environment for successful investment, she claimed. It was also fascinating and inspiring. Marian-Jean Marinescu, MEP said there was a need for a common European defence and security strategy that includes securing all elements of the space value chain.
This meant that the next generation of EU space systems must have dual-use capability. NATO is entrusted with external defence of the EU, but the Commission also needs to be able to provide defence, not just consume it, he concluded.
Whichever way we say it what is clear is that the two are inextricably linked together.
However he indicated that there is a need to think deeply and have a rational debate about dual-use systems and in particular about the interface between civil and military use. Clearly there is a growing tension with regard to overtly military use of Galileo both now and in future generations of the system.
And the access to the technology is highly restricted. However some issues still need to be resolved. Geospatial On a different tack, from 23—26 May the eighth edition of the Geospatial World Forum [ www.Mar 29, · Brief Ever since radar being used in battle in an attempt to gain superior situation awareness and guide weapons, various techniques were created to reduce the effectiveness of those sensors.
