ABSTRACT
This article reports that professor Paul Cross of University College London told the satellite positioning conference that the industry needs a united front if it is to take full advantage of the opportunities the technology will bring in the future. Cross said the launch of Galileo, upgrades to GPS and the appearance of other satellite navigation systems could greatly improve the performance of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) by 2010. Cross said that they can expect at least 60 and possibly 70 or 80 satellites, and the appearance of quite a significant supporting infrastructure. Cross also said that the railway might want to set up its own GNSS structure, but it's not clear to who within the industry would be responsible for that. The ideal would be a single multi-purpose GNSS-based system capable of dealing with everything from signalling to track maintenance.
