Some highlights that we have in store for delegates include:
- The opening day will see plenary presentations by GNSS system providers and government and industry players from Australia on key issues as we move into the Multi-GNSS era;
- The day two plenary will cover Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems, which is emerging as a highly demanding application for precise and reliable positioning.
- The session will open with an invited presentation from Austroads;
- The Chinese BeiDou system is now offering significant coverage across Australia and in addition to a system update from the Chinese Satellite Navigation Office, several speakers will present results of the impressive accuracy and availability improvements already being offered by BeiDou;
- We are also working with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency and the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information to setup the first public demonstration in Australia of the Quasi Zenith Satellite System’s LEX signal.
- LEX enables real-time centimetre accuracy to be delivered directly from the QZSS satellite to Australian users and represents an exciting new development in the Multi-GNSS era;
- We are also pleased to announce the addition of a new session to close the symposium looking at what Multi-GNSS will bring to Australia and the region.
The specially invited speakers include Oliver Montenbruck from the German Space Agency who leads the Multi-GNSS Experiment in the International GNSS Service (IGS).
