ABI Research reports rise in cellular GNSS IC revenue

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

​The GNSS IC market continues to go from strength to strength with Cellular GNSS IC revenue alone forecast to break $2 billon by 2016, with a host of secondary markets starting to emerge, according to a report by ABI Research. This may help to explain why both Intel and Samsung have recently acquired GNSS IC design capabilities, creating competition for incumbents like Broadcom, Qualcomm and Mediatek.

Wearables, in-store advertising, ambient intelligence, IoE/IoT and connected homes have created a buzz around indoor location. Before indoor location can really happen, however, GNSS is critical to tying together the disparate networks.

GEOINT 2013* discusses open geospatial solutions

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

This year, there was more interest among the presenters at the GEOINT 2013* conference in open cloud-based geospatial solutions and collaboration. The reason for this is that these solutions save money and are technologically advanced, allowing more information to be gathered in a timely and critical fashion. Also, collaborative technologies allow the collection of data during crises to occur quickly and can make it possible for more lives to be saved. This is certainly a change from the attitude of federal government and intel professionals who have been highly concerned about security and distrustful of sharing data and any solutions that allowed the sharing of data.
