Session 2. AI AND ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES FOR NEXT GENERATION GNSS

Artificial intelligence opens new doors in navigation. It will create a path to greater autonomy and automation of systems and automated decision making. Additional advanced technologies will complement this potential to lift GNSS performance to a new level in terms of accuracy, integrity, robustness. The session will address these potentials and show how applications, user-side and system-side techniques and processes will benefit.

 

Chairman: Prof. Dr. Zak M. Kassas, University of California, Irvine & The Ohio State University, USA

"Enhancing smartphone GNSS with ML and 3DMA"

Session 3. SECURE PNT SERVICES - THIS SESSION IS CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE!

The increasing dependency of many commercial and safety & security related applications on GNSS has led to multiple approaches to enhance the confidence we have in PNT-information derived from GNSS for many years. Some approaches are based on the usage of multi-constellation GNSS, the usage of complementary radionavigation systems or sensor-fusion. Further, also improvements and additional services of the GNSS itself are under discussion or even under implementation for different GNSS. Galileo, for example, will introduce the Open Service Navigation Message Authentication (OSNMA) and the Commercial Authentication Service (CAS) being available to the wide GNSS community. For user communities under governmental control the Galileo PRS will provide an even higher level of security. This session will provide an overview on the Galileo OSNMA, CAS and PRS and highlight their different and corresponding use cases.
