News Flash: Maiden flight of new generation navigation receiver
Since November 2020 two new Precise Orbit Determination Receivers (PODRIX) from RUAG Space are in orbit. They determine the position of ocean-monitoring satellite Sentinel-6. The PODRIX GNSS receiver achieves a very high, real-time in-orbit accuracy of the satellite’s position in orbit from below one meter to a few centimeters utilizing on-ground post-processing. The high accuracy is achieved through simultaneously processing of multi-frequency signals from the U.S. GPS and European Galileo satellites. PODRIX GNSS receivers are built on the experience of the more than 20 GPS-only receivers of the RUAG Space legacy receiver generation that are currently in orbit. GNSS stands for global navigation satellite system.
