Two industry experts on GNSS interference and jamming will lead an Inside GNSS web seminar scheduled for August 22. Tom Stansell and Logan Scott will join moderator Mark Petovello on a panel to discuss the subject, ““GNSS Jamming & Interference: Causes, Consequences, and Solutions.”

A marked increase in incidents of GNSS jamming and interference has raised the profile of their effects on user equipment. Whether unintended or intentional, in the military domain or civil environments, these incidents have raised concerns among GNSS manufacturers and users about how to avoid or mitigate the adverse phenomena.

Sponsored by NovAtel, Inc., the free webinar will explore the causes and effects of unintended interference as well as intentional jamming of GNSS user equipment, which have consequences in both civil and military applications.

During 90 minutes of presentations and discussion, the webinar will address the following questions and invite others from webinar viewers:
·      Where does GNSS interference and jamming come from and what does it look like to a receiver?
·      How does civil jamming/interference differ from that experienced in the military domain? What are the similarities?
·      What are the operational impacts and implications of interference/jamming for users?
·      What are the current ways that equipment designers and users try to mitigate or avoid the effects of interference & jamming.
·      What lessons can designers of civil GNSS user equipment learn from the experience with military jamming?
·      What are some of the alternative ways forward in dealing with interference and jamming at both the technical and policy levels?

The webinar will be of particular interest to product designers, system integrators, application developers, equipment manufacturers, and engineering professionals and users who need a high level of assurance in access to GNSS positioning and timing. Registration will begin soon, with an announcement to be posted on the Inside GNSS webinar webpage.

Featured Industry Experts

Tom Stansell heads Stansell Consulting, which he founded in 1999. Previously he was a vice-president of Leica Geosystems involved in technology development and strategic relationships and, earlier, a staff vice-president at Magnavox where he led the development of many Transit and GPS products and their underlying technologies. Stansell served on the 2000 WAAS Independent Review Board and in 2001 led technical development of the new GPS L2 civil signal (L2C) and later, the L1C signal definition project. He received BEE and MEE degrees from the University of Virginia.

Logan Scott specializes in radio frequency signal processing and waveform design for communications, navigation, radar, and emitter location. He has more than 30 years of military and civil GPS systems engineering experience. At Texas Instruments, Scott pioneered approaches for building high-performance, jamming-resistant digital receivers. The principal of Logan Scott Consulting, based in Fort Collins, Colorado, he is currently active in precision indoor navigation, a jammer location system, nuclear materials detection, and, location based encryption and authentication. Scott holds 34 U.S. patents and a BSEE degree from Columbia University, New York.
