Seminar: Reference Frames, Positioning and Navigation - Inside GNSS

Seminar: Reference Frames, Positioning and Navigation

This one-day seminar on Reference Frames, Positioning and Navigation will be held on September 3, during the Nordic Geodetic Commission (NKG) General Assembly, which runs from September 1 through 4 at Chalmers Technical University in Gothenburg.

This one-day seminar on Reference Frames, Positioning and Navigation will be held on September 3, during the Nordic Geodetic Commission (NKG) General Assembly, which runs from September 1 through 4 at Chalmers Technical University in Gothenburg.

The seminar will focus on GNSS-based positioning and navigation
applications with high accuracy requirements such as Precise Point
Positioning (PPP) for on- and offshore applications, Real Time Kinematic
(RTK) positioning for precision farming, docking of vessels,
construction work, and machine guidance, Ground Based Augmentation
Systems (GBAS) for landing of airplanes and similar topics. It will also focus on reference
frames (ITRF vs. ETRF) and coordinate transformations, as well as on
modelling of atmospheric effects on GNSS signals (ionosphere and
troposphere) for improved positioning performance.

In addition to oral presentations of abstracts submitted, the seminar will feature two invited speakers:

  • Zuheir Altamimi, IGN France, on The International Terrestrial Reference Frame: Current status and future development
  • Ignacio Fernández-Hernández, the European Commission, on Galileo Commercial Service, status and plans.

The NKG was founded in 1953 as an association of geodesists from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

The deadline for abstract submission has passed.

For information on the technical program, contact the local organizing committee members Jan Johansson, Chalmers University of Technology or Mikael Lilje, Lantmäteriet.

The seminar is a joint project of the Nordic Institute of Navigation (NNF), the
Swedish Radionavigation Board (RNN) and the Nordic Geodetic Commission
(NKG).
