announces the availability of a new white paper by Telit on the impact of the Russian Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) on satellite navigation and positioning.
At the end of 2011 the Russian government announced that GLONASS, the Russian Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) was fully operational and had global coverage, following which the experts at Telit decided to test its impact on satellite navigation and positioning. Telit experts conducted tests in Los Angeles and London with the results clearly showing that the combination of GPS and GLONASS, found in modules such as Telit's SL869 improved positioning tremendously.
Especially in urban canyons with huge skyscrapers the receiver had the ability to track at least four satellites and calculate a fix, which was impossible using only GPS. Thanks to Telit’s SL869, a newly released Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) module from Telit that has access to both GLONASS and GPS, blind spots were reduced and navigation performance was radically improved.
