Positioning Adventures In Nottingham

A large scale experiment of the joint IAG/FIG committee on Ubiquitous Positioning

In May 2012, members from 5 universities around the globe were gathered in the premises of Nottingham Geospatial Institute (NGI) to carry out a series of experiments on Ubiquitous Positioning. Multiple scenarios were tested using multi-sensor configurations on a variety of custom platforms (i.e. train, vehicle, and pedestrian platforms).

China’s super-thin atomic clocks achieve mass production

Photo: Beidou constellation China’s super-thin rubidium atomic clock, which is just 17 millimeters thick, has been put into mass production, according to Xinhua News Agency. The clock, developed in 2018 by a research institute under the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp. Ltd, (CASIC) is the key to the positioning and timing accuracy of BeiDou navigation satellites. In 2015, Chinese scientists developed a rubidium clock that is tiny enough to fit in the palm of your hand but was almost...
