Session 7. CHARTING THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL NAVIGATION SATELLITES
Since the launching of the first GPS satellites, other countries have successfully designed satellites for their own Global Navigation Satellite Systems. Over the last decades, GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou have evolved – second and third generations are already on their way. With new generations, satellite manufacturers are challenged to enable further improved services and to find new, innovative solutions. In this session, satellite manufacturers from Europe, USA, China, and Russia will discuss their current challenges and the navigation satellites of the future.

Session 8. THE ROLE OF GNSS WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF AUTOMATIC DRIVING
The entire automotive industry is rapidly moving towards automatic driving. Those systems are enormously complex combinations of sensors, actuators and a massive amount of software. (GNSS) Positioning is one important input for automatically driving systems. But what exact role does positioning play in the context of automatic driving? How is it used and what aspects of the positioning are most relevant for automatic driving? In this session leading OEMs and solution providers will share their current views and vision for the future regarding GNSS in the context of automatic driving.

Session 9. GNSS SPACE SERVICE VOLUME

The interoperable multi-GNSS Space Service Volume (SSV) as an enabling capability for space users. Within the United Nations International Committee on GNSS (ICG), an initiative was established to ensure that GNSS signals within the SSV are available and interoperable across all international global constellations and regional augmentations. This initiative was carried out within the ICG Working Group-B (WG-B) on “Enhancement of GNSS Performance, New Services and Capabilities”. A multi-constellation, multi-frequency analysis, supported by all service providers, was conducted and the results are documented in the GNSS SSV booklet, which was released by the UN in December 2018. The objectives of the GNSS SSV Session at the Munich Summit are to provide an overview of the results from this analysis, and also to outline the evolution of this activity including potential new areas of activities.

Session 10. CIVIL GPS SERVICE INTERFACE COMMITTEE
In the swiftly changing world of existing and emerging GNSSs, the U.S. Civil GPS Service Interface Committee continues to be the recognized worldwide forum for effective interaction between all civil GPS users and the U.S. GPS authorities. The GPS and GNSS civil space user segment is rapidly expanding from low Earth orbit to geostationary and lunar, requiring global coordination on policy, requirements, and technical exchange between providers and industry. Safety in aviation has never before been more demanding as we evolve from legacy navigation and surveillance
systems to modernize the airways. Striving to keep the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) system-of-systems interoperable and compatible with each other, the challenges are many as users adjust to modernized satellites. Governments are working hard to adapt to new PNT policies, user requirements, threats to GNSS spectrum, and the need to ensure PNT resiliency. The U.S. recently ushered the GPS constellation into an energized era of modernization characterized by improved performance, increased PNT capability, and global interoperability. Industry, educational, and research institutes, as well as the GNSS user community must engage with the providers of these signals to keep them abreast of ever changing user requirements.

Session 11. THE (R)EVOLUTION OF GLOBAL NAVIGATION SATELLITE SYSTEMS
The well-thought design of the United States‘ NAVSTAR positioning system GPS has enabled a stable global navigation service for almost three decades. It was subsequently adopted by various other nations with at best minor conceptual changes. Despite continued effort to improve the overall system performance, the basic architecture of today‘s GNSSs is largely the same as envisaged in the early days of GPS. Within this session a closer look at the future of GNSSs will be taken. Panelists will discuss the near-term evolution and improvement of current systems, but also present visions of next-generation GNSSs that break with well-established paradigms. This includes the role that mega-constellations in low Earth orbit can play for global satellite navigation, as well as the proposed use of advanced optical clocks and laser-based time synchronization in the „Kepler“ concept.
