is the second civilian GPS signal, designed specifically to meet commercial needs.
Slightly larger, the L2C
Rocket Boomer is also a twin-boom jumbo but is intended for tunnel construction work.
This system must be capable of tracking the following satellites simultaneously: GPS (L1C/A, L1C, L2C
, L2E, L5), GLONASS (L1C/A, L1P, L2C
/A, L2P, L3), SBAS (L1C/A, L5), Galileo (E1, E5a, E5B) and BeiDou (B1, B2).
Commenting on the two next generation Rocket Boomers just launched, the L2C
and M2C, Torbjorn Redaelli, marketing manager, said: "The development of these rigs began five years ago, with a vision.
Through a series of quantitative studies on four different country cases (Vietnam, Cambodia, Ethiopia, and Tunisia), L2C
set out to determine the drivers of agglomeration in poor countries and the impacts of agglomeration on firm-level productivity.
The WAAS third-generation reference receiver (G-III) uses fully updated hardware, and tracks all GPS signals including the legacy GPS L1 C/A, L2P(Y) (semi-codeless), and the modernized L2C
, L5, L1C signals as well as the WAAS L1 C/A and L5 signals.
Since the prospective benefit of increased FDI to the host economy will depend in part on the extent to which technical knowledge and working practices held by higher capability MNEs are transmitted to local firms, the L2C
project has sought to gain a deeper understanding of the transmission mechanisms that help create productivity gains for local firms.
