This webinar has taken place. A recorded version is available now to those who register.
Europe's satellite navigation system, Galileo, is about to launch its initial services by the end of this year — find out what's in store for the international community of GNSS manufacturers, application markets and end users at this web seminar sponsored by Inside GNSS and NovAtel.
Panelists include a long-time leader in Europe’s GNSS user equipment industry and technical and policy experts from the three organizations responsible for creation of the Galileo GNSS and the rollout of its services.
Marco Lisi serves as the GNSS services engineering manager at the European Space Agency (ESA) in the Directorate of Galileo Program and Navigation Related Activities. In this position he is responsible for the engineering and exploitation of services based on the European navigation infrastructures, Galileo and EGNOS, also advises the executive director of the European GNSS Agency (GSA). After getting a doctorate in engineering (summa cum laude) at the University of Rome, he worked for more than 30 years in the aerospace and telecommunications sectors, covering managerial positions in R&D, engineering, and programs, both in industry and in institutional organizations.
Fiammetta Diani is deputy head of market development at the European GNSS Agency (GSA) where she has worked since 2009. Before joining the GSA, she worked in the private sector for more than 10 years, in both the aerospace and information technology industries, gaining extensive experience in applications of space-based technologies for the transport sector.
