Announcement of NAVAC

NAVISP aims at fostering PNT innovation while supporting competitiveness of industry and member states national strategies. 

NAVISP portfolio of activities is quite heterogeneous and includes a  mix of ESA-driven and industry-driven initiatives. 


Is the NAVISP portfolio complete? Is the Programme meeting the needs of an evolving and highly competitive PNT market?


From now on, an external view on the above questions will be provided  by an Advisory Committee of high-profile independent  experts with outstanding industrial and research experience.

NAVAC stands for NAVigation Innovation and Support Programme Advisory Committee. 

5 NAVAC members were appointed in Sept 2018. We welcome them all to the NAVISP family!
