The Research and Training Unit for Navigational Electronics and the Department of Civil Engineering, Osmania University, Hyderabad are conducting a 3-day workshop on GNSS.
The main objective of this course is to introduce the basic concepts of GNSS, its applications and its limitations.
This basic course will cover the topics:
• Principle of operation of GPS or any GNSS system
• Architecture of variopus systems including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou and NavIC
• Errors in GPS or GNSS
• Principle of operation and architecture
• Signal structure of GNSSs, DGSPS, augmentation systems, WADGPS
• Applications of GNSS in the areas of Civil Engineering, Aviation, Remote Sensing, Geoinformatics, Forest, Atmospheric and Environmental fields
Expected participants are working engineers, scientists, academicians, research scholars and students interested to understand the mechanism of GNSS and its applications.

As a child Stan Honey taught himself navigation and he admits he was “always good at math” and “just found navigation interesting.”
When he shared his many tales with the crowd in the Oregon Ballroom Tuesday night at the ION GNSS+ during the Plenary Session, the Yale- and Stanford-trained engineer entertained the audience with a wealth of information on early navigation systems, current navigation technologies, and how he and his colleagues developed many of the systems used to enhance the way millions of fans watch sports on television.By Inside GNSS
