Event: NavSpace 2019 (Padova, Italy, 18-19 June 2019)

The Robustness and Assurance of Aerospace and Aeronautics navigation system has been one of the top priorities since the early days of navigation and positioning systems. Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) has been a revolution for its global availability of position and time, as well as for its accuracy and integrity performances. It is estimated that approximately 7% of the European GDP depends on satellite navigation applications, including aviation, maritime, rail, road, energy, telecommunications and financial services. On the other side, robustness and assurance in navigation is an open issue that has yet to be solved within the GNSS domain. Cyberattack and cyberwarfare protection systems have been developed for both receivers and applications, integrating sophisticated algorithms or advanced antennas, and finally coupling with alternative navigation systems. The well known GNSS limitations have raised developments for context awareness detection systems, capable to alert and geolocate sources of interference and attacks. To date, Robust Positioning and Time (RPNT) is still one of the hardest challenges for GNSS.

The workshop is organised in 4 major streams: Algorithms and techniques, GNSS Applications, space mission and services updates and technological solutions.

Press Release: New dataset shows 25% increase in global cross-border travel

In 2016 alone, about 2.9 billion international trips occurred worldwide – around 600 million more than five years earlier.

With around 1.2 billion estimated country-to-country movements in 2016, the European Union is the region with the highest mobility in the world.

These estimates stem from the Global Mobilities Project’s new Global Transnational Mobility Dataset.
