Memorandum of Understanding signed by Hexagon | NovAtel and Xona Space Systems for development of assured precision PNT technology with new LEO constellation – Yahoo Finance


The launch of Xona's test satellite begins a new era of innovation in assured PNT, with NovAtel receivers demonstrating early support of Xona's signals.
CALGARY, Alberta, May 31, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Hexagon | NovAtel, a leader in assured positioning, navigation and timing (PNT), has signed an MoU with Xona Space Systems to collaborate in the PNT development of Xona's new Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellation.
LEO constellations offer a new avenue of assuring PNT by providing stronger signals with satellites closer to the Earth and improved positioning accuracy with rapidly changing geometry. Additional constellations and a larger number of available satellites improves visibility in cases where parts of the sky are obstructed by buildings and other obstacles. Also, as the threat of unintentional or malicious jamming and spoofing increases, it becomes important to consider alternative sources of PNT and resiliency methods.
"Precise and robust PNT forms the foundation for safe operation of modern applications such as automotive and autonomy," said Brian Manning, CEO of Xona. "We are thrilled to be collaborating with NovAtel to demonstrate the benefits that our combined technologies can bring to these markets and many more."
Xona's new constellation will transmit encrypted signals on two frequencies, both offering authentication, further building new levels of resilience against malicious interference. As an early adopter of Xona's signals, NovAtel demonstrates its continuing leadership in resilient assured PNT and "all source PNT" innovation.
"This agreement accelerates the future of alternative PNT," said Sandy Kennedy, vice president of innovation at Hexagon's Autonomy & Positioning division. "Our collaboration will demonstrate the complete assured PNT ecosystem that Xona has envisioned and NovAtel is very excited to be part of."
Xona and NovAtel will be presenting these innovations in assured PNT and the future of GNSS at the Autonomy & Positioning Reality Summit during HxGN LIVE Global in Las Vegas this June 20-23, 2022. Learn more at hxgnlive.com/global.

Astronomers have used a cloud-based technique pioneered at the University of Washington to identify and track asteroids in bunches of a hundred or more. Their achievement could dramatically accelerate the quest to find potentially threatening space rocks. The technique makes use of an open-source analysis platform known as Asteroid Discovery Analysis and Mapping, or ADAM; plus a recently developed algorithm called Tracklet-less Heliocentric Orbit Recovery, or THOR. The THOR algorithm was created

For years, women have gathered in workplace bathrooms, around watercoolers or the coffee machine to share stories and bond about a common office complaint: the air conditioning is cranked up too high. A study published several years ago confirmed what many women have always known: The temperature isn't just too low — women's productivity tends to decline when the workplace air becomes downright frigid.
