ESA drone brings satellite navigation receivers to gather information
ESA’s Navigation Laboratory has a brand-new hire: this drone can bring various types of satellite navigation receivers to gather information for follow-on analysis.
The NavLab, based at ESA’s ESTEC technical center in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, is focused on the screening, analysis and characterisation of navigation systems for both ESA and external consumers.
With drones representing a rapidly-expanding satnav user base, this is a prompt addition to the NavLab’s suite of platforms for the screening of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) innovations and strategies—also consistingof fixed, mobile and pedestrian platforms and a set of test vans.
Along with receivers and antennas, the drone can likewise host radio-frequency spectrum samplers and assistance devices such as inertial sensingunits and stereo electroniccameras, permitting the evaluation of efficiency in particular characteristics and environments associated to particular “Uncrewed Aerial Vehicle’ applications, such as method, landing, flying nextto structures or inside.
