GPS/INS direct georeferencing

GPS aided inertial navigation systems have been available for commercial mapping applications for approximately a decade, pioneered by Canadian-based Applanix Corporation with their POS (Position and Orientation System) technology. The impact on the aerial survey and remote sensing industry has brought about a re-assessment of traditional photogrammetric methodology and the potential elimination of two fundamental mapping components, the ground control survey and corresponding aerotriangulation process.

GPS Satellite

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based radio-navigation system consisting of a constellation of satellites and a network of ground stations used for monitoring and control. A minimum of 24 GPS satellites orbit the Earth at an altitude of approximately 11,000 miles providing users with accurate information on position, velocity, and time anywhere in the world and in all weather conditions.

GPS is operated and maintained by the Department of Defense (DoD). The National Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Executive Committee manages GPS, while the U.S. Coast Guard acts as the civil interface to the public for GPS matters. The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating and applying the use of GPS as it pertains to aviation.

Compass Satellite

The Compass system (also known as Beidou-2, BD2) is a project by China to develop an independent global satellite navigation system. Compass is not an extension to the previously deployed Beidou-1, but a new GNSS system similar in principle to GPS and Galileo.

The new system will be a constellation of 35 satellites, which include 5 geostationary orbit (GEO) satellites and 30 medium Earth orbit (MEO) satellites, that will offer complete coverage of the globe. The ranging signals are based on the CDMA principle and have complex structure typical to Galileo or modernized GPS. Similarly to the other GNSS, there will be two levels of positioning service: open and restricted (military). The public service shall be available globally to general users. When all the currently planned GNSS systems are deployed, the users will benefit from the use of a total constellation of 75+ satellites, which will significantly improve all the aspects of positioning, especially availability of the signals in so-called “urban canyons”. The general designer of Compass navigation system is Sun Jiadong, who is also the general designer of its predecessor, Beidou navigation system.
