Inside GNSS will host an applications-oriented web seminar on GNSS and inertial integrated systems on Tuesday, June 18.
The free event is sponsored by KVH Industries.
Webinar presenters are Xavier Orr, an R&D engineer of 3D navigation technologies at Advanced Navigation in Australia and Andrey Soloviev, principal at Qunav LLC and a research engineer who focuses on multi-sensor integration for navigation applications.
GNSS Solutions editor and University of Calgary professor Mark Petovello moderates.

The four Galileo in-orbit validation (IOV) satellites now on orbit have begun broadcasting the “offset” between the GPS and Galileo system time, accurate to a few billionths of a second, according to the European Space Agency.
With satellite navigation based around the highly accurate measurement of signal travel times, both Galileo and GPS have their own internal reference time systems used to synchronize all system clocks, including those in the ground segment, on satellites, and in receivers.

The European Commission (EC) Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry will hold a workshop in Brussels, Belgium, on June 4 to address applications of the European Union satellite navigation programs, Galileo and EGNOS.
The first part of the workshop will focus on the past and future activities of the EC aiming to maximize and ensure the market uptake of European GNSS downstream applications.

Paul Flament is head of the European Commission’s Satellite Navigation Unit. His primary job, essentially, is to manage the Galileo program of the European Union (EU). With four operational satellites now in orbit and an ambitious schedule to set in place a constellation of 26 by 2015, Flament sat down with Inside GNSS to talk about a number of pressing issues that could affect the future of Galileo.
Flament first addressed the EU GNSS Regulation, the much-anticipated document that sets out just who will do what in the future Galileo program.

When the European Space Agency launched its Galileo In-Orbit Validation Element-A (GIOVE-A) satellite in 2005, its main mission was to transmit Galileo test signals that secured the system’s frequencies, evaluate hardware under space environmental conditions, and so forth.
