SkyWave Adds Glonass Capability to Maritime Terminals

[Satellite TODAY 12-07-09] SkyWave Mobile Communications (SkyWave) introduced a Glonass navigation capability to its DMR-800L satellite data communication terminal, targeted to its shipping customers in Russia, the company announced Dec. 3.
    The DMR-800L with integrated Glonass aims to provide the capability to compute its exact location using either or both the Glonass and GPS systems.
SkyWave said the dual-navigation capability is designed to benefit fleet owners who are mandated to use Glonass but do not want to incur the costs and reliability issues associated with the use of an external Glonass module.
