University of Nottingham GNSS project to boost precision agriculture in Brazil
The University of Nottingham is working with Brazilian and European Union (EU) partners to solve atmospheric interference problems that hamper satellite-based positioning in equatorial countries like Brazil.
Network members include small to medium enterprises in Europe and Brazil that are keen to incorporate new solutions that will improve their satellite-based services.
The network encompasses:
- University of Nottingham, UK;
- Sao Paulo State University and Universidade do Estado de Mato Grosso, Brazil.
- National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology and SpacEarth Technology (an SME), Italy.
- Space Research Centre of Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland.
- Three small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs): Geo++, Germany, and Alezi Teodolini and MC Engenharia Ltd, Brazil.
GNSS Know-how for Professionals in South-East Asia
In the framework of the BELS+ project, www.belsproject.eu, SpacEarth likes to inform you about two upcoming events in July in Barcelona:
• A Professional Training on “GNSS Data Processing”, for details and registration, please see www.belsproject.eu/professional-training/
• An Info Event on “Opportunities for European GNSS Companies in South-East Asia” to contribute to the new EGNSS Demo Centre in Hanoi; for details and registration, please see www.belsproject.eu/belsplus-events/
Both events are targeting GNSS professionals and are free of charge, since the project is supported by GSA/Horizon 2020 under contract 776369.
Meet SpacEarth and the BELS+ full team in Barça!
EGU 2018 – General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union
At EGU 2018, SpacEarth Technology will present a talk titled “Irregular behavior of the low-latitude ionospheric irregularities probed with the multi-scale properties of L-band signals”. In this work, we analyze the radio scintillation over San Miguel de Tucumán (Argentina) under the EIA southern crest focusing on the time multi-scale variability and on the causal relationship between forcing factors from the geospace and the ionospheric response. We highlight here the conditions leading to the exacerbation or the inhibition of the GPS L-band scintillation. [read abstract]
SEVENTH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON MARINE TECHNOLOGY (MARTECH) 2016
At MARTECH, SpacEarth Technology has presented its device to synchronize stand-alone Seafloor observatories.
This electronic device can be used before and after the observatory deployment (when the observatory is recovered). In fact, it does the synchronization and the measure of time drift between a GPS receiver and the rubidium clock mounted on the observatory. Moreover it has a high time resolution and it is fully customizable for firmware, that can be written with open source software easy adaptable with your specific rubidium clock model.
