BELS+ Workshop and GNSS Training, July 17-19

The BELS+ Workshop, “GNSS Technologies and Application for a Sustainable Development: the European Contribution to Robust and Precise Positioning”and Training days will be held July 17-19, 2019 in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia.

Workshop
Galileo, the European Satellite Navigation System, is headed toward its Full Operational Capability Phase after providing Initial Operational Services to worldwide users since 2016. In this workshop representatives of European institutions and companies will bring news about the status of the Galileo system, its future developments as well as about scientific initiatives for the monitoring and prediction of ionospheric disturbances. In addition, information on the Galileo’s footprint in Asia will come from representative of the NAVIS Centre in Hanoi, which hosts the Galileo Demo Centre. This Demo Centre aims to be a permanent showcase of European GNSS technology in Asia. Some of the companies currently hosted in the Centre will present their most innovative solutions and research outcomes in the second part of this session.

Training Days – “European GNSS Solutions for high accuracy positioning”
The BELS+ Training days is a course on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) data processing which focusses on precise positioning. The training covers in detail in the study of the concepts and techniques used in the high-accuracy positioning by means of GNSS. The theoretical foundations for Standard and Precise Point Positioning (SPP, PPP) are presented, focusing in the instrumental use of the concepts and techniques of GNSS navigation. In particular, the different terms involved in modelling the code pseudoranges and carrier-phase measurements (relativistic effects, atmospheric propagation effects at troposphere/ionosphere, instrumental delays, clock synchronism, etc.). The processing algorithms are discussed in detail and implemented through guided exercises in the laboratory session based on the ESA/UPC GNSS Laboratory tool suite (gLAB), where the impact of the modelling accuracy is assessed in the positioning domain.
