RUAG Space delivers complete Precise Orbit Determination (POD) systems including antennas that are able to process both the older GPS signals and the new L2c signal. The next-generation devices will also be compatible with Galileo, the new European navigation system.
RUAG Space also builds specialized navigation receivers for use on board weather satellites. These GPS radio occultation receivers measure the way signals from navigation satellites are altered as they pass through the Earth’s atmosphere. This can be used to derive information about atmospheric water content and temperature.
RUAG Space develops and builds signal processing units for Earth monitoring and science satellites that are tailored to the specific requirements of each particular mission.
