Topcon Announces New GLONASS Signal Tracking Capability Print E-mail
Written by Topcon Positioning Group   
Thursday, 13 November 2014

Livermore, Calif., USA/ Capelle A/d Ijssel, The Netherlands – November 13, 2014 – Topcon Positioning Group announces its latest GNSS reference receiver, the NET-G5, is capable of tracking a new signal from the GLONASS constellation.
 
The GLONASS-M 55 satellite was launched in June 2014 and is equipped with the experimental payload capable of transmitting signals in the L3 frequency band. Engineers successfully tracked the signal with the NET-G5 receiver during a series of recent tests at the Topcon Technology Center in Moscow. The use of signals in L3 band alongside L1 and L2 bands is expected to further enhance the competitiveness of the GLONASS system.
 
“Topcon is committed to continually investing in research and development to offer end-users and the industry the most up-to-date solutions,” said Ivan Di Federico, chief strategy officer for Topcon Positioning Systems. “Our premier engineers, scientists and designers bring world’s first products and technologies to market, and the ability of the NET-G5 to track the latest signal — a first for the industry — is an excellent example of that dedication.”
 
Using Vanguard™ and Universal Tracking™ technologies, the NET-G5 receiver incorporates 452-channels capable of tracking the full GNSS signal spectrum, including modernized GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS and SBAS signals.
