Program Day 3, March 22

Morning

08:45 - 10:00 hrs

Session 8. MUNICH FLASHLIGHTS - NEWS FROM BAVARIA

In this year’s Bavarian Flashlights session, we give the floor to our local GNSS research community. The local GNSS community is working on a diverse set of topics, from basic research of future navigation concepts to sensor fusion, from new antenna and receiver designs to bringing research results into application. The presentations from our invited speakers will focus on their research, how this research could turn into applications and their vision for the future of PNT. We conclude with a discussion session.

Chairwomen:

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

Katharina Lutz, Galileo Competence Center, DLR, Wessling, Germany

Panel Members:

Thomas Pany, Professor of Satellite Navigation, ISTA/FZ Space, University of the Bundeswehr Munich, Neubiberg, Germany

Michael Meurer, Professor, Head of Navigation Department, German Aerospace Center (DLR), Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany

Alexander Rügamer, Head of Satellite Based Positionining Systems Department, Fraunhofer IIS, Nuremberg, Germany

Rolf Kozlowski, Managing Director, DLR GfR, Wessling, Germany

Stefan Schlüter, Head of Department for Systems Analysis and Evolution, Galileo Competence Center, DLR, Wessling, Germany

 

10:05 - 11:15 hrs

Session 9. IMPACT OF INTERFERENCE AND MONITORING FROM SPACE

Radio-frequency interference (RFI) in GNSS signal bands can pose a threat to modern human life and safety by degrading the performance of GNSS services for positioning, navigation, and timing. The L1 band, which is commonly used in many GNSSs for interoperability, has been well-protected by ITU regulations for the past 50 years. As a result, unintentional RFI sources are rarely observed, but due escalating drone and electronic warfare, this topic is unfortunately gaining importance for the safe management of air traffic. RFI monitoring is the initial step in localizing and eliminating RFI

sources. Recently, a technique for monitoring RFI using spaceborne GNSS-R data to map ground-based RFI transmission on a global scale was reported to the scientific society.

11:15 - 11:45 hrs

REFRESHMENT BREAK

11:45 - 13:00 hrs

Session 10. GALILEO NEW SERVICES AND DIFFERENTIATORS

In addition to the Open Service (OS), Galileo already offers several services in support to specific user needs, as identified in various application domains, and will continue to introduce and evolve such services in the future. These special services support higher accuracy or improved robustness against interference, jamming or spoofing. This session provides an up-to-date overview of the introduction of the Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS), the Galileo High Accuracy Service (HAS) and the Galileo Authentication Services for civil users.

Chairmen:

Stefan Baumann, Programme Manager, IABG, Ottobrunn, Germany

N.N., EUSPA, Prague, Czech Republic

Panel Members:

N.N., EUSPA, Prague, Czech Republic

Henry Kleta, German Competent PRS Authority (CPA), Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport, Berlin, Germany

Carl Önne, Deputy Head of Swedish CPA, Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency, Karlstad, Sweden

Representatives of the other national CPAs as well as speakers on the Open Services will be listed soon.

 

13:05 - 14:15 hrs

Session 11. VIEWS FROM RECEIVER MANUFACTURERS

All future developments in satellite navigation like LEO-PNT, higher accuracy or authentication manifest themselves only after highly performant receiver solutions of small size and low power consumption are available for system integrators and users. This session will therefore feature a panel discussion of mass-market, professional and military receiver and service providers displaying their views on the most recent developments in the upstream sector.

Chairwoman:

Simona Lohan, Faculty of Information Technology and Communication Sciences, Tampere University, Tampere, Finland
