A free GPS World webinar on Nov. 21 tackles a new frontier, if not the final one, for GNSS. “Developments in Space GNSS Navigation,” sponsored by NovAtel, brings together experts from NASA, ESA, NovAtel and Spire (the CubeSat company) to discuss how they’re taking GNSS capabilities beyond Earth’s boundaries.

Navigating through space has long proven to be challenge for aerospace engineers and professionals because of the complex combination of technology and cost required for success.

However, with advancements in GNSS and receiver technology, organizations and nations around the world are increasingly interested in space exploration activities.

Today, the space industry is seeing GNSS technology used in low-Earth orbit (LEO) and highly elliptical orbit scenarios.

In this webinar, speakers from NASA, ESA (the European Space Agency), NovAtel and Spire will examine emerging trends regarding the usage of GNSS technology in the space industry, including an increasing need for situational awareness while navigating through space and the ability to service satellites while in orbit.

These experts will also provide a look into their own experiences with a variety of ambitious space projects and applications.

Speakers include:

  • Werner Enderle, Head of Navigation Support Office, ESA European Space Operations Center
  • Benjamin Ashman, Aerospace Engineer, NASA
  • Erin Kahr, Critical Safety Systems, NovAtel
  • Dallas Masters, GNSS Program Manager, Spire

Date: Thursday, November 21, 2019
Time: 1 p.m. EST / 10 a.m. PST / 7 p.m. (1900h) Central European Time
