The European GNSS Agency - GSA published the Issue 1 of the GNSS User Technology Report: both Istituto Superiore Mario Boella and Politecnico di Torino, the two founders of NavSAS, are listed among the top EU GNSS R&D Centres, members of the Satellite navigation University Network - SUN! This is a great reward for the work carried on GNSS in the last 15 years by the two institutions in Torino, Italy.
As highlighted by the Executive director of GSA, Carlo Des Dorides: As a sister publication to our well recognised GNSS Market Report, this Report zeros in on the state-of-the-art GNSS receiver technology, along with analysing the trends that are sure to change the entire GNSS landscape. In the following pages, you will get an in-depth analysis of GNSS user technology as it pertains to three key macrosegments: mass market solutions; transport safety and liability-critical solutions and high precision, timing and asset management solutions. In addition, we also provide a general overview of the latest GNSS receiver technology, common to all application areas, along with a supplement on location technologies that looks beyond GNSS in the positioning landscape.
The Satellite navigation University Network - SUN started its work in 2010 and is now part of the e-KnoT (link) project, funded by the GSA/EC within the Horizon 2020 and leaded by Politecnico di Torino. SUN was founded to link providers of Satellite Navigation university education with their expertise with each other, with students as well as representatives from industry and politics.
