GENIUS Workshop: Vulnerabilities of GNSS

The October entry in this EU-sponsored series of free GNSS training workshops concerns GNSS vulnerability. It will take place at the University of Nottingham on October 8, 9 and 10.

The instructors will be Terry Moore, Alan Dodson and Marcio Aquino, all faculty at University of Nottingham Geospatial Institute.

The topics:

GNSS Overview: Position fixing, dead reckoning, space segment and SV blocks, ground control and improvement programs,user segment and applications

The topics:

GNSS Overview: Position fixing, dead reckoning, space segment and SV blocks, ground control and improvement programs,user segment and applications

GNSS Applications: Aviation, road transport, rail, autonomous vehicles, timing, precision agriculture, resource exploration, emergency services, scientific applications

Receivers and Antennae: Data processing

Practical Activity: Investigating view of sky on satellite lock, ionosphere effects

Vulnerability:system level, propagation channel vulnerabilities, accidental and deliberate interference, 

GNSS failures and characteristics: Satellite clock and ephemeris prediction errors, ionosphere and troposphere propagation errors, timing and tracking errors.

Practical Activity:Commercial jammers and jamming experiment

Assessment of levels of risk and resilience to disruption of GNSS: Position and navigation, timing, vulnerability, mitigation strategies

Increasing resiliance with Galileo / GNSS modernisation

 

The registration deadline is one month before the first day of the tutorial. The workshop is free, but space is limited. Priority will be given to employees of FP7 companies or agencies.

The GENIUS professional training program of free 3-day tutorials in GNSS is supported by the European Commission and the European GNSS Agency (GSA) through the FP7 project GENIUS. For more information, contact Oliver Julien at the email address below.
