ABOUT THE EVENT
A marked increase in incidents of GNSS jamming and interference has caused concern about their effects on user equipment. This 90 minute free seminar will cover the causes and effects of accidental or malicious incidents in civil and military environments and how to avoid or mitigate the resulting problems. Viewers can sign up for the live presentation on Wednesday, August 22, or watch a recorded version online, which will be available shortly after the live event.
The webinar will be of particular interest to product designers, system integrators, application developers, equipment manufacturers, and engineering professionals and users who need a high level of assurance in access to GNSS positioning and timing. Registration will begin soon, with an announcement to be posted on this page.
The webinar is organized by Inside GNSS and sponsored by NovAtel, Inc.
