Morning. Thursday, March 16, 2017


08:30 - 09:30 hrs

Session 7. INDUSTRY MEETS RESEARCH - AN INTERACTIVE DISCUSSION ON INNOVATION DRIVERS AND BARRIERS IN SMEs
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and their innovative ideas are an important factor of economic growth. Therefore it is important to improve the environment in which innovative business ideas can be created. A main factor is the promotion and facilitation of technology transfer, thus the access to scientific results. In order to enable a dynamic and creative GNSS product, service and application development, a stronger and more structured link between the most promising results of GNSS research and companies should be fostered. In this session the innovation drivers and barriers in SMEs will be discussed with an interactive panel.

Chairman:
Dr. Fabio Dovis, Associate Professor, Department of Electronics and Telecommunications, Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy

Moderator:

Alan Cameron, Group Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, GPS World magazine, website, newsletters at North Coast Media, Eugene, OR, USA

This session is organized according to the so called „fishbowl method“ that involves GNSS experts from universities, research centers and industry in an interactive discussion. Everybody is welcome to join the „fishbowl“!

09:30 - 10:00 hrs

COFFEE BREAK

10:00 - 11:30 hrs

Session 8. GALILEO PUBLIC REGULATED SERVICE (PRS) BACKING SAFETY & SECURITY RELATED APPLICATIONS
Satellite navigation is used already today by multiple security related applications and it is expected that this use will increase in the future. Coming along with this development the requirements in terms of GNSS-robustness and -reliability are expected to increase, too. The Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS) will offer a dedicated service for such applications to governmental authorized users, e.g. public safety & security, critical infrastructures, defence, etc. The PRS Session will provide an overview on the current status of PRS implementation at European level and within different EU Member States.

Chairman:
Dr. Stefan Baumann, IABG, Ottobrunn, Germany

11:30 - 13:00 hrs

Session 9. CGSIC
What is being done to ensure the viability of satellite PNT spectrum? What level of noise in adjacent spectrum bands is acceptable for continued operations of GNSS signals? How does the U.S. capture input from global users of GPS and what is being done to promote cooperation with other PNT systems? What policy challenges must be overcome by governments to support the GNSS community? How is the aviation community strategizing for future navigation resiliency? How is the U.S. Department of Homeland Security approaching the question of a backup for GNSS? What studies are being done to help validate any decision for a backup? How do decisions made in other countries affect U.S. PNT policy?

LUNCH BREAK


Afternoon.


14:00 - 15:15 hrs

Session 10. BeiDou
The BeiDou system is committed to provide continuous, stable and reliable positioning, navigation and timing services for global users. The development of the BeiDou system has shifted into high gear. And the in-orbit verification of the satellites is ongoing. In this session, the status and development of the BeiDou System will be presented. The session will also provide an opportunity to discuss how the compatibility and interoperability can be improved. This will help to foster applications and provide better service for global users.

Session 11. INTEROPERABLE GNSS SPACE SERVICE VOLUME
With the expansion of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) constellations and upgrades of existing constellations the signal availability will improve significantly in particular for space missions well beyond LEO. All constellation providers and regional augmentation systems are working together through the ICG (International Committee on GNSS) forum to establish an interoperable GNSS Space Service Volume (SSV) for the benefit of GNSS space users. The objective of the GNSS SSV session is to give an general overview of the activities covering mission, system and user level.
