SA Space Agency seeks to locally augment satellite navigation
September 26, 2013 Editor 0
The South African National Space Agency (Sansa) is continuing to develop the concept of a South African satellite navigation augmentation system. This has an initial primary, but by no means exclusive, focus on the aviation sector. Since the development of the original US Global Positioning System (GPS) in the 1990s, satellite navigation systems have become ubiquitous. In addition to GPS, there is Russia’s Glonass, which is now fully operational again, and Europe is deploying its Galileo navigation satellite constellation, which should become fully operational in 2018. In addition to these global networks, a number of countries are deploying systems that will, at least in the beginning, be more regional in scope. These include China, India and Japan.
