Registration is now open for the ESA-JRC International Summer School on GNSS 2019. The summer school will take place July 15-26 in Vila Nova de Cerveira, Portugal.

The program is open to graduate students (with a first university degree), Ph.D. candidates, early-stage researchers and young professionals willing to broaden their knowledge. The 50 available seats will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.

The mission of the ESA-JRC International Summer School on GNSS is to provide the attendees with a comprehensive overview of satellite navigation. Extensive lab work will provide attendees with hands-on learning opportunities.

Topics covered include:

  • Basics of satellite navigation
  • Carrier-phase positioning
  • GNSS RF link performance
  • Ionospheric and tropospheric effects on GNSS
  • and more

The summer school’s objective is to provide attendees with a comprehensive overview on satellite navigation, starting from the GNSS system, its signals, the processing of the observations in a receiver and finally determining the position-navigation-time (PNT) solution.

Lectures on intellectual property rights (IPR) and patents, as well as on business aspects, will be given. The future of satellite systems will also be discussed.

The main emphasis will be on the development of a group project using innovative ideas and covering all aspects, from the initial concept, to a business plan, its technical realization and marketing of the product or service.

Internationally renowned scientists and specialists will give lectures as well as practical exercises and lab work.
