Program Day 3, March 18

8.30 - 9.30 hrs

Session 7. PPP FOR SAFETY OF LIFE APPLICATIONS, A DREAM OR A REALITY?
Over the last years Precise Point Positioning (PPP) techniques have demonstrated their capability to provide high accuracy positioning services at any location, reducing the support of any dense local or regional infrastructure. This paved the way for the provision of low cost high accuracy positioning services. Nowadays, many user communities, such as automotive, rail, maritime, agriculture, etc. are becoming enthusiastic about the potential of PPP techniques, and are now looking for, or implementing solutions able to deliver certain levels of integrity. Some years ago the provision of safe PPP solutions was a dream, but today it is becoming a reality. This will enable a wide range of low cost new autonomous and safety of life applications.

Session 8. A GLANCE INTO THE FUTURE OF UNMANNED AND AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS
There is a high demand for precise navigation for autonomous systems in all domains: cars, robotics, ships and UAVs. Sensors of all types, inertial navigation systems (INS), lasers, odometers, radars and cameras play an important role in this space, yet satellite navigation remains critical. While the aforementioned sensors enable the autonomous systems to sense, store and retrieve data about the environment, satellite navigation provides robust techniques that are necessary to provide accuracy and reliability for unmanned systems. In this session, different companies and institutions will present and discuss their solutions for precise navigation for different types of unmanned and autonomous systems.

Chairman: Dr. Robert Leishman, Director, Autonomy and Navigation Technology (ANT) Center, Air Force Institute of Technology,

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH, USA

11.30 - 12.30 hrs
Session 9. REGULATORY AND CYBERSECURITY ASPECTS OF AUTOMATED/AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS

This year´s Legal Session will focus on regulatory and cybersecurity aspects for automated and autonomous systems. Co-organized again by BHO Legal, the session will include high-level speakers from relevant international organisations, national ministries and industry providing insight on the current state in the development of suitable regulatory frameworks and on efforts in coping with ever-increasing cybersecurity threats. On the way from automated to increasingly autonomous systems, there are significant technical hurdles, including proper cybersecurity. The development also raises completely new aspects with regard to established legal principles such as causality, responsibility and - ultimately - liability.

Chairmen:

Dr. Ingo Baumann, Partner, BHO Legal, Cologne, Germany
Dr. Oliver Heinrich, Partner, BHO Legal, Cologne, Germany

 

12.30 - 13.00 hrs

COFFEE AND SNACKS

 

13.00 - 14.00 hrs
Session 10. MUNICH FLASHLIGHTS – NEWS FROM BAVARIA
Brief presentations from the Munich scene reporting on news and activities of the Bavarian satellite navigation
network of excellence and of the high-tech cluster of satellite navigation.

Chairwoman: Bärbel Deisting, Director Space and Space Applications, bavAIRia e. V., Gilching, Germany

 

14.00 - 15.30 hrs
Session 11. GALILEO/GNSS GROUND SEGMENTS
Modern Satellite Navigation Systems have high tech satellites broadcasting the signal in space. The satellites are monitored and controlled around the clock to provide the needed data, correlate time and ensure satellite safety. Ground systems are serving the whole system in order to make it work sophisticated and highly reliable. Reliability is a must and failure not an option, so the panel members will address concepts and strategies on how to make a complex system like Galileo run continuously. This panel will address the need for signal availability and evolution strategies and will touch the background of the Galileo outage in July 2019 as well as the derived lessons learned.

Chairman:
Simon Plum, Managing Director for the Galileo Program, DLR GfR, Weßling, Germany

15.30 hrs
BAVARIAN NETWORKING EVENT

This year the Summit will close at 3.30 pm on March 18, 2020 with a special Bavarian Networking Event in the exhibition area, offering a glimpse into Bavarian cuisine and beer culture. At this reception you will have the possibility to round up the conference in a relaxed way and with high-level networking, meeting different companies from Munich and Bavaria that will also give a deeper insight into their work in the session “Munich Flashlights – News from Bavaria” on the same day, at 1 to 2 pm.
