The University of Nottingham
Ranked in the world's Top 100 and the UK’s top 10 universities, the University of Nottingham’s (UNOTT) academics have won two Nobel Prizes since 2003. It has two overseas campuses in China and Malaysia. According to the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) in the UK more than 97 per cent of research at the University is recognised internationally and more than 80 per cent of Nottingham research is ranked in the highest categories ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. The University of Nottingham and the East Midlands Development Agency (emda) recently inaugurated a £9m state-of-the-art GNSS/Galileo Research and Application Centre of Excellence (GRACE) in Nottingham, capitalizing on world-leading research and training at the Nottingham Geospatial Institute (NGI) to support industry, including SMEs.
The NGI has an industry-led research profile and is well equipped with state of the art equipment and software, including latest generation surveying equipment and GNSS receivers, GNSS CORS stations, ionospheric scintillation monitor receivers both onsite and deployed at remote locations, Spirent GNSS signal simulator, GNSS data processing software, and a state of the art Navigation Test Vehicle equipped for real time high accuracy navigation testing. The NGI is one of the few university-based satellite positioning research groups in Europe to have been involved in almost every key stage of the Galileo development program.
