The European Navigation Conference (ENC) will be held April 15-17, 2014, in the World Trade Center in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The conference aims at technology, innovation, and business in the PNT domain (positioning, navigation, and timing). The conference program is now available for review online.
Satellite navigation and positioning, using current operational systems like GPS and GLONASS, will be major topics. The conference will also highlight recent developments on emerging GNSS like the European Galileo and the Chinese BeiDou.
More than 100 presentations will be given at ENC GNSS 2014. Here are a few highlights:
- Prof. Bradford Parkinson (Stanford University): Assured PNT – assured world economic benefits.
- Prof. Erik Theunissen (Netherlands Defence Academy): So you think you are safe.
- Prof. Cathryn Mitchell (University of Bath): Space weather effects on GNSS.
- Ignacio Fernández-Hernández (European Commission): The Galileo commercial service: current status and prospects.
- Jaron Samson (European Space Agency): An introduction to interference in GNSS bands.
- Prof. Peter Teunissen (Curtin University/Delft University of Technology): Multi-GNSS: combining GNSSs for precise positioning and navigation.
- Prof. Frank Van Graas (Ohio University): Disruptive technologies and GNSS aircraft landings.
- Prof. Qile Zhao (Wuhan University): Positioning performance and precise applications of Beidou navigation satellite system.
- The European Space Agency will organize a dedicated session on Galileo IOV results.
- Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO) will chair the kick-off meeting of the European Satellite Navigation Competition 2014.
Prior to the conference, on April 14, there will be a Resilient PNT forum and a meeting of the European Maritime Radio Forum (EMRF).
