069 - Enabling high performance PNT in lunar environment

In the context of the renewed interest in lunar exploration, the need for preparing the future user instrument for the new positioning service on the Moon has become very important, in particular for supplementing the current navigation techniques based on inertial sensors and cameras. A significant R&D effort is ongoing towards the development of dedicated lunar infrastructures for enhanced Moon…

067 - Precision Agriculture - High precision coordinate and alignments transfer

In future precision agriculture, it is expected that each plant (e.g. corn) will get coordinates with very high accuracy. The type of plants and their coordinates will be stored in a database with additional agricultural information. Therefore, already during the sowing process each finger of the seeder comb/seed drill has to be coordinated with high accuracy in the relevant navigation reference…

065 - eLoran antenna for handheld devices

Enhanced-LORAN (eLoRAN) is the latest of the low-frequency LOng-Range Navigation (LORAN) systems, and provides a PNT service for use by all modes of transport (land, maritime and aeronautic). Amongst other characteristics, e-LORAN can enhance geo‐security through its jam‐ and spoof‐resistant signal characteristics of high transmit power and low carrier frequency. Furthermore, the signal can…

059 - Application of photonics technology for PNT user equipment

The demand for seamless positioning of IoT devices both outdoors and indoors is an important requirement for many logistic applications relevant to the digital transformation of industry. This is becoming more relevant as the degree of automation in industrial operations increases, together with the need of permanently tracking the location of inputs from suppliers, to be able to forecast…

054 - Monitoring timing signals from space. A novel approach for a worldwide robust time and synchronisation capability

Many systems (including critical infrastructure) rely on GNSS receivers for synchronization purposes nowadays, for instance telecom networks, power grids and financial markets. Due to the vulnerability of GNSS to interference and spoofing, there is a growing need on alternative (non-GNSS-dependent) timing services, as shown by several investigations and initiatives on this topic (e.g. European…
