Session 3. GNSS - IS IT TIME FOR BACKUP?
The Challenge: GNSS has been described as „…a single point of failure for critical infrastructure.” Free and available anywhere with a view of the sky, GNSS timing and location signals have been incorporated into virtually every technology. GNSS service disruptions are caused by natural events, accidents, and equipment malfunctions. Malicious acts by nation states, terrorists, organized crime, and “privacy seekers” are a widespread and increasing problem. Many nations are considering establishing terrestrial PNT systems to complement GNSS, or encouraging industry to establish such systems as a partly commercial enterprise. Members of the panel will be asked to describe desirable characteristics of such systems.


Definitions: For the purpose of this panel „Backup” will be understood to mean one or more PNT systems to complement GNSS services. Complementary systems continuously operate alongside and seamlessly with GNSS and can be integrated in the same timing and navigation receivers.

Dana A. Goward, President, Reslilient Navigation & Timing Foundation, Washington, DC, USA

14:15 - 15:30 hrs

Session 4. GALILEO SEARCH AND RESCUE SERVICE
The Galileo Search and Rescue service (SAR) is Europe‘s contribution to an international emergency beacon locating system called „Cospas-Sarsat“. It helps to locate these beacons and rescue people in distress, for example at sea or in the mountains. First the European Commission will introduce to the Galileo SAR service, its initial service capacity and the full service with additional features still to unfold. The Galileo SAR operator will give a view from the ground and on the service performances. Afterwards, we will hear from the COSPAR SARSAT on the transition to the operational MEOSAR System and about future plans for the system which will benefit people across the globe. The perspective on how the Galileo SAR service reinforces and complements the international capacity will be discussed together with examples of how MEOSAR and GALILEO SAR help emergency operations. The views of beacon manufacturers and associated standardisation bodies will be brought forward to complete our understanding of Galileo SAR service impact on the entire SAR value chain.

Session 5. GALILEO 2ND GENERATION
As of 15 December 2016, Galileo is offering its Initial Services to public authorities, businesses and citizens. The present Galileo constellation consists of 18 satellites, with the full constellation of 30 satellites expected to be in orbit by 2020. The augmentation system EGNOS is also evolving, and is expected to broadcast multifrequency satellite signals in a few years time. Just like GPS, Galileo must look beyond 2020 and consider a 2nd Generation System which will involve new satellite signals and corresponding ground systems. This will lead to higher accuracies, more reliable integrity, and higher resistance to interference. Panel members will debate these issues, from the different points of view of government, industry and application developers.

Chairman:
Prof. Dr. Vidal Ashkenazi, Chief Executive, Nottingham Scientific Ltd, Nottingham, UK
