News: UK space fears loss of Galileo work following Brexit vote

pocketgpsworld.com
It's feared that the Brexit vote may lead to the UK's space sector being excluded from the EU's Galileo satellite navigation project.

With Galileo business amounting to an estimated £6 billion the loss would seriously affect the UK's ambition to grow its share of the world space market. Thales, a Franco/Italian company has already raised questions about UK companies involvement in Galileo and there is rising concern that the Brexit vote will lead to a weakened position when bidding for space contracts.

Paul Verhoef, ESA’s director of satellite navigation has stated that there would be no discrimination against UK companies but that political pressure would be unavoidable once Article 50 comes into effect and the exit process begins.

News: Now there's a bulletproof deployable speed camera trailer

pocketgpsworld.com
Meet the Vitronic Enforcement Trailer, a new deployable speed camera that can be set up on site in 30mins and has enough on-board power to run for five days.

Equipped with armour plating, it has a wireless link to upload photos and can be towed to any location and once positioned its wheels retract to prevent vandalism or theft. The unit is able to police fixed and variable speed limits and can monitor four active traffic lanes at once.

Manufactured in Germany, the company has already won an order for 250 units from the French government. How long before we see these over here I wonder?

News: Driver trapped in car overnight due to satnav wrong turn

pocketgpsworld.com
Most of us will have misread a satanv's turn instructions on occasion, all of us will have been lost at some point, but I'm struggling to understand how anyone could have driven down this steep and very narrow concrete ramp and thought they could make the 180 degree turn near the bottom in a large car!

But that's what this hapless motorist tried to do as he drove down the pedestrian only ferry access ramp at Dunquin where boats leave for the Blasket Islands off the west coast of Ireland. And he was sufficiently determined that he managed to wedge his car between the walls and spent the night stuck, blocking access to the pier, until police arrived the next morning.

News: Detecting a spoofed GPS signal

pocketgpsworld.com
With the right know-how it's possible to spoof the GPS signal and dupe a target into diverting off course using only £1500 worth of hardware. With the ever present threat of terrorism this is now a rising concern.

Now researchers are developing systems that can detect spoofed GPS signals to prevent users from being diverted off course. In 2014 a proof of concept device has been tested aboard the White Rose, a £60 million UK registered superyacht, which demonstrated the technology. With the GPS signal spoofed, the ship was diverted off course. Then they demonstrated how the spoofed signal can be correctly identified thus triggering an alert.

Earlier this year U-blox released the first commercially available anti-spoofing system and others are working to design systems that can catch newer attack methods.
