Irregularities in Earth’s upper atmosphere can distort GPS signals and NASA has teamed up with University of New Brunswick geodesy and geomatics engineering researcher, Richard Langley, to study these irregularities in hopes of diminishing their effects on communications.  When you don’t know how to get to an unfamiliar place, you probably rely on a smart… Read More »

The University of New Brunswick in Saint John, in partnership with Mount Allison University, is excited to be continuing the Graduation Preparation Series (GPS), helping prepare international students for graduation, for the second year. Graduation can be quite a busy time. Getting ready to leave the hallowed walls of UNB Saint John to enter the… Read More »

GPS technology developed by University of New Brunswick scientists is set to begin orbiting the Earth this month aboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket as part of a Canadian Space Agency mission that will, in part, monitor space weather. The Telegraph Journal featured the full story on its front page Monday, September 16. To arrange… Read More »

Researchers Richard Chadwick and Todd Kelly are on a 14-day tour around the Canadian North to install Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers built to map space weather in the Canadian Arctic. The equipment collects GPS signals from space and transmits it to a climate-controlled server station at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton as… Read More »

NASA senior research scientist and principal investigator and University of New Brunswick graduate Attila Komjathy is using GPS for an entirely new application, which can track and monitor tsunamis.  The early days of his dissertation research at UNB, specifically working with Professor Richard B. Langley, is what first interested Komjathy in the research of different… Read More »

The University of New Brunswick is an official partner in a major European program to train the next generation of scientists and engineers to counter solar threats to satellite positioning and navigation systems. One of the major threats to the world’s ever-increasing dependence on GPS and other global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) comes from the… Read More »
