PosiTim at ILA

PosiTim was offered the chance to have a small exhibit at the International Air Show 2010 in Berlin, better known as the ILA. This great opportunity materialized thanks to both VEGA and CESAH. VEGA, had invited the Centre for Satellite Navigation in Hessen (CESAH) to present itself on the VEGA stand at the ILA, in hall 9. CESAH decided that it would best represent its incubation activities by inviting one of their start-up companies. PosiTim as a real “space” start-up was selected by CESAH to be the most appropriate representative of the current incubates. The picture (Courtesy of Ruth Reinicke of VEGA) shows Frank Zimmermann (right) the General Manager of CESAH, and Tim Springer (left) the General Manager of PosiTim at the VEGA stand.

For a true aerospace company like PosiTim it was really a great opportunity and a unique experience to be able to present our small start-up company at this very high-level event. We had some very interesting visitors and new contacts at our stand. Also we met with several interesting companies and people in hall 9, the “Space centre” of the ILA 2010.
We are convinced that this has been a very good experience for our company and that it has certainly helped to increase the awareness regarding our company.
Many thanks to both VEGA and CESAH for offering PosiTim this unique opportunity!

Over the last years the Navigation Support Office (OPS-GN) of the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) of the European Space Agency (ESA) has developed a new high accuracy GNSS software package. This software, called NAPEOS, is in routine usage at ESOC’s OPS-GN since January 2008 for all its activities in the scope of the International GNSS Service (IGS). The NAPEOS based ESA products are amongst the best of the IGS Analysis Centre products. As such the NAPEOS software may be considered to be of at least similar quality as the GNSS software used at the other IGS analysis centres.

With this message we would like to inform you that ESA is now ready to license the software to companies which are located (main office) in one of the ESA member state countries. This license of the NAPEOS software is free of charge. If you are interested to learn more about the NAPEOS software have a look at the web-site we have prepared for this at.

To support people who are interested in using the NAPEOS software we, PosiTim, are organising a NAPEOS training course for high accuracy GNSS processing. The course will be given in Gran Canarias, Canary Islands, Spain, from October 25 to 29, 2010. The course is limited to 20 people and will be a mixture of theory and praxis. Unfortunately the course is not free of charge as we will have to cover our costs. Detailed information regarding this NAPEOS training course may be found on our web-site.
