The Future of GNSS – Professor Terry Moore – Vice President of the Royal Institute of Navigation
19:00 to 21:00 – Thursday 21st April 2016
Warsash Maritime Academy, Newtown Road, Warsash, SO31 9ZL
This is a joint meeting with The Nautical Institute and UK Hydro Socy South “The Future of Global Navigation Satellite Systems – GNSS”. For many years the only operational satellite system has been the United States GPS and it has become the accepted as the global standard and forms part of our daily lives. However, these days it is more appropriate to talk about GNSS, because GPS has been joined by Russian, Chinese, Indian, Japanese and now, European systems.
Professor Moore will review the current status of GPS and its proposed modernisation with an emphasis being placed on the impact and benefits of the developments and new signals will bring to users, be they at sea, on land or in the air. In a similar manner he will describe the Russian GLONASS and other systems with consideration of the international efforts being directed towards their interoperability.
