Non-Aeronautical Satellite Positioning Applications

Objectifs

Analyse the existing and potential needs for localisation, navigation and dating and survey in the domain that are not directly linked with the aeronautical ATM/CNS Domain.

So the field of the civil Transport (Road Transport, Land, sea, rail), geodesics and farming-agriculture application will be explored. The necessary needs of high precision of the Military and Geodesy area will be also explained.

Participants

Engineers and executives.
