News: Portsmouth Launches Wheelchair Navigation App

pocketgpsworld.com
Portsmouth is the first city in the UK to introduce an app that will help people with limited mobility to plan their travel routes.

The free Route4U app, available on Apple and Android smartphone platforms as well as a web app, is a global project and encourages cities and property managers to get involved in developing detailed local data for its users. Portsmouth City Council worked closely with the developers to map out the city's pathways.

Users can easily plan their journeys using a route map and navigation system with the app indicating pavement obstacles, surface quality, kerb heights, widths, inclines and travel distances. It provides route planning and turn-by-turn navigation for wheelchair users, and it can be customised to each person's own abilities.

News: Garmin adds new Commander model to MARQ Smartwatch range

pocketgpsworld.com
Garmin's lineup of smartwatches, MARQ, designed to sit firmly in the premium segment, has a new addition, the MARQ Commander bring ing the range up to six styles.

MARQ Commander's aesthetic appears to target this at military users, a night vision goggle mode and phrases such as 'operator' and 'call of duty' reinforce that.

The watch itself is an impressive beast, with a black titanium shell, sapphire crystal lens, GPS, and the screen with a night vision mode so it can be read whilst wearing night vision goggles. Other standard MARQ features include performance data, altimeter, barometer and three-axis electronic compassing support for Spotify and other music services.

It also has a kill switch that turns off GPS, wireless and erases location data. It's impressive watch but it's difficult to see a soldier choosing a 1,700 watch that requires regular charging as his or her goto watch when deployed in theatre.

News: QinetiQ, Collins Partnership Pursues New GNSS Receiver

pocketgpsworld.com
QinetiQ has won a 67m contract from the UK's Ministry of Defence (MoD) to develop a new multi-constellation satellite receiver.

The UK's Robust Global Navigation System (R-GNS) has been instigated to provide the UK with accurate and resilient positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) when the global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) are becoming increasingly vulnerable to attacks through jamming and spoofing.

By taking signals from multiple navigation networks the company says it "will enable secured navigation ensuring that users and platforms (increasingly including autonomous land, maritime, air and weapons systems) will be able to navigate accurately, robustly, and safely".

News: GPS Block 3 - The Future Of Navigation

pocketgpsworld.com
The US Global Positioning System (GPS) has been in operation since 1993 and has had regular technology updates in the intervening years as older models are retired ands new ones take their place.

Currently GPS Block II satellites form the backbone of the constellation but GPS Block III will take things to a new level of accuracy, albeit at an eye watering cost of $529m to build each one.

Three times more accurate, 25% longer on duty lifespan, interoperability with EU's Galileo, Japan's QZSS and China's Beidou and an encrypted and jam resistant M-Code signal available to the US military.

There are currently two GPS III satellites on orbit and undergoing testing and validation, another due for launch in Jan 2020 and the remaining seven are expected to be operational by 2023.
