A new GNSS Ionospheric Scintillation and TEC Monitor (GISTM) receiver system from Novatel has been released that integrates the company's powerful OEM628 measurement engine with a high-quality, low-phase-noise, oven-controlled crystal oscillator. The GPStation-6 provides signal tracking, ionospheric scintillation and TEC measurements for all current and upcoming GPS, GIonass, Galileo and Compass satellite signals. The Global Positioning System uses signals that can be distorted by a disturbed ionosphere, when this happens the receiver either displays an erroneous position or can fail to compute any position. Because the GPS signals are used by a wide range of applications, and since any significant space weather event can make the GPS signal unreliable, the need for precise measurements is paramount. The GPStation-6 allows users to understand and monitor ionospheric activity, and was designed to replace the company's legacy GSV4004B GISTM receiver.
