The Canadian Space Agency has awarded $1.4 M in grants for four projects at the University of Calgary, three at the University of Alberta, and one at the University of Waterloo. At uCalgary, the funds will go toward research on how atmospheric phenomena like the aurora borealis can interfere with GPS signals. “This latest CSA support enables University of Calgary researchers, focused on New Earth-Space discovery and development, to continue to lead internationally,” said uCalgary VP (Research) Ed McCauley. “This research is resulting in better sensors and sensor webs for environmental monitoring and Global Navigation Satellite Systems as part of this key research priority.” CTV News | Metro News | uCalgary
