ACSER Develops Advanced New GNSS Receiver

Researchers at the Australian Centre for Space Engineering Research (ACSER) at the University of New South Wales have developed a new, advanced receiver that accepts signals from the GPS and Galileo constellations, across multiple frequencies. The device is an evolutionary upgrade of an earlier generation of receiver, called Kea.

Made in Australia and New Zealand, Kea was a single-frequency GPS receiver and one of the first locally made units of its kind to be proven in spaceflight (aboard the UNSW-ECO cubesat). Development of the new receiver was led by Professor Andrew Dempster, Director of ACSER.

“The idea was to take that work (on Kea) and upgrade it for this multi-frequency, multi-system solution,” Professor Dempster says.
