Spirent adds BeiDou Phase-3 signals to its GNSS RF constellation simulators

By Zenobia Hegde

Spirent Communications plc, the provider in BeiDou, GPS and other global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) testing solutions, announced that BeiDou Phase 3 signals have been added to its GNSS RF constellation simulators.The addition of these new signals to the GSS7000 and GSS9000 simulators follows the launch of the first two Beidou-3 satellites in November 2017.

Phase 3 of the Chinese BeiDou system will extend its coverage from Asia to the whole world, and will provide receiver developers and integrators with additional GNSS signals to make positioning, navigation and timing systems more accurate, and help to support new applications, such as autonomous vehicles.

The new signals will use the same carrier frequencies as the GPS and Galileo systems, so chipset manufacturers and device developers will need to test integrated designs to avoid problems caused by confusing data from different GNSS.

“By offering the BeiDou Phase 3 signals, our customers can test their designs well before the system is fully operational, which is expected in 2020,” said Stuart Smith, lead product manager. “With signals already starting to appear, it is important for developers to have test tools that can ensure devices will successfully make use of all GNSS signals.”

BeiDou Phase 3 signals are available immediately on the GSS7000 and GSS9000 simulators, and existing users can obtain the software upgrade by contacting Spirent.

Machfu, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology company, announced the release of its MACH-3 IIoT Gateway, a device allowing companies in energy, water, oil and gas as well as other industrial segments to seamlessly connect legacy infrastructure to cloud based IoT and existing SCADA systems.

The product was designed to both simplify the connection and management of devices as well as provide a secure and easily customisable application framework to process and manage data at the network edge. The versatile functionalities of the MACH-3 IIoT Gateway will be demonstrated at the 2018 DistribuTECH show, January 22-25 in San Antonio, Texas.

“The MACH-3 IIoT Gateway allows companies to securely gather actionable data from legacy infrastructure in an elegant and straightforward manner, enabling them to make informed, strategic business decisions in ways that would previously require enormous financial and time investments,” said Prakash Chakravarthi, CEO, Machfu.

Deployment of this platform enables enterprises to easily access and analyse data from diverse sources (i.e. sensors, controllers, smart grids, etc.) via secure wireless and wired connectivity as well as create and rapidly integrate “edge” and “emerging web-based” industrial IoT applications to existing infrastructure.

The application framework is “sandboxed” providing enterprises much needed flexibility in terms of adding/deleting APPs and drivers over the life of their system—much like a smartphone—based on their specific needs and/or requirements. Defense-in-depth security has also been built into the platform and extends from the physical to application layers.

“The resulting IIoT solutions decrease time to action and connectivity costs, while, simultaneously, minimising disruption and risk to existing automation systems,” added Chakravarthi.

There are many practical applications and benefits for the MACH-3 IIoT Gateway in the energy industry. “Using Machfu’s industrial hardened gateway, utilities can create and rapidly integrate next generation distributed control systems,” said John Geiger, V.P. business development, Machfu.

“For example, the Gateway provides the ability for any sensor to be transported as DNP3 objects to head-end SCADA applications over both private and public networks. It also provides a secure cellular overlay to existing private networks. The flexibility and versatility of the platform is its greatest asset.”

Machfu will be demonstrating the product at DistribuTECH 2018 held January 22-25 in San Antonio, TX (Booth 1862).

Hydrogen drone with claimed 3-hour flight time and up to 2kg payload enters UK market

By Zenobia Hegde

UK drone technology and service provider uVue has taken delivery of what is believed to be the world’s first ever production hydrogen drone – the MMC Hydrone 1550 – enabling a new era for drone technology services in the UK to begin.

According to uVue, the MMC Hydrone 1500 is a huge breakthrough for the drone services industry because it is now a viable alternative for many services providers using manned helicopters and light aircraft. As a comparison, current battery powered drones average a 30 minute flight time with the voltage constantly dropping during flight. This compares to the MMC Hydrone 1500’s equivalent of three hours with a consistent voltage throughout.

The ultimate cost savings for many industries choosing an MMC Hydrone 1500 solution are therefore transformational. Examples of application industries that will benefit from this ground-breaking drone include precision agriculture, security & surveillance, traffic monitoring, emergency services and construction, to name a few.

Russ Delaney, director of Tech Ops at uVue, an ex-British Army helicopter instructor and drone pilot with more than 20 years’ experience of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) comments, “After extensive research into drone technology and potential solutions, we are delighted to be the first company to have been appointed to distribute and licence this incredible machine in the UK.

Aside from its robust performance, I am particularly impressed by the endurance of the MMC Hydrone 1500 – up to three hours flight time with a 2kg payload – making this a genuine game changer in our industry. The endurance of this particular Hydrone is so strong that it offers a real alternative to full-sized rotary aircraft.“

The key focus for uVue during the introduction of the Hydrone 1550 was that all of the onboard systems met the very high safety standards required to operate the drone safely within the UK commercial drone airspace, whilst also remaining within the regulations set by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

uVue is the exclusive licensed distributor for all MMC Drones and the MMC Hydrone 1550 is available to be bought or hired as a service proposition from uVue here.
