Workshop on the Use of Global Navigation Satellite Systems for
Scientific Applications

Organized jointly by the Office for Outer Space Affairs and the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics

Co-organized and co-sponsored by the International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems

Hosted by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics

Trieste, Italy

1 - 5 December 2014

Overview

The Workshop will discuss state-of-the-art applications with emphasis on the scientific exploration of the Earth's environment using global navigation satellite systems and review on-going and planned initiatives as well as new research programmes utilizing GNSS ground- and space-based measurements to observe ionospheric and space weather phenomena. Cooperative efforts and international partnerships for capacity-building, training and research, including the activities of the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) will also be presented.

The Workshop programme will include plenary sessions and sufficient time for discussions among participants to identify the priority areas where pilot projects should be launched and examine possible partnerships that could be established. A half-day technical tour will be arranged by the Local Organizing Committee during the Workshop. For details, see Information Note

Objectives and expected outcomes

The Workshop will contribute to international cooperation by providing opportunity to exchange updated information on the use of GNSS technology and its applications.

The specific objectives of this Workshop are:

  • Increase awareness among decision makers and representatives of research and academic community about on-going activities and trends in the use of GNSS technology, applications and services;
  • Review of the results of the previous workshops, carried out between 2009 and 2013, and development of a plan of action for all participating countries that would contribute to the wider use of GNSS technology and its applications;
  • Review of on-going and planned initiatives as well as case studies that could contribute to the wider use of GNSS technology and its applications, including the possibility of one or more national, regional and international pilot projects, in which interested institutions could incorporate the use of GNSS technology;
  • Identify a functional partnership that could be established in order to promote the use of GNSS and its applications, as well as recommend how such a partnership could be established through voluntary actions that could include Governments, international organizations and other relevant stakeholders;
  • Define recommendations and findings to be forwarded as a contribution to the International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (ICG).

Thematic sessions

I. Policies and strategies for promoting sustainable development

This session will provide an overview of the current status of global and regional navigation satellite systems and satellite-based augmentation systems that provide continuously optimized location and time information, transmitting a variety of signals on multiple frequencies available at all locations on planet Earth. These are Global Positioning System (GPS) and Wide-Area Augmentation System (WAAS) of the United States, GLObal NAvigation Satellite System (GLONASS) and System of Differential Correction and Monitoring (SDCM) of the Russian Federation, European Satellite Navigation System (GALILEO) and the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) of the European Union, COMPASS/BeiDou Navigation Satellite Systems (CNSS) of China, Indian Regional Navigation System (IRNSS) and GPS Aided Geo-Augmented Navigation (GAGAN) of India, and Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) of Japan.

II. GNSS-based application areas

This session will cover case studies focusing on but are not limited to the use of GNSS for civil aviation, including future GNSS requirements for aviation, and transportation (roads, highways, rail); positioning and navigation systems operation in the marine environment, including waterway navigation, harbor entrance/approach, ocean and harbor control of vessels; development and implementation of precision agriculture or site-specific farming and accurate tracking of environmental disasters such as fires and oil spills, flood prediction and, crustal and seismic monitoring; surveying and mapping; timing and telecommunications.

III. GNSS reference station system and services

This session will focus on geodetic framework, based on continues observation and analysis of GNSS data; realization of the regional reference frames. The session will also discuss issues from the international perspective to the local government perspective regarding reference frames and development of geodetic infrastructure.

IV. National, regional and international initiatives/experiences in GNSS implementation and uses

This session will first present the current status of the follow-up projects and initiatives emanated from the workshops/training courses/schools. Next, the presenters will make proposals for joint experiments/demonstration projects.

V. GNSS and space/atmospheric weather monitoring

This session will focus on instrument arrays in operation, data analysis and modelling; atmospheric effects on GNSS signals and GNSS based systems, atmospheric monitoring (troposphere) to improve numerical weather predictions, and space weather monitoring (ionosphere) for space situation awareness.

VI. Capacity building, training and education in the field of GNSS

This session will update on education and training in global navigation and related applications, strengthening a specialized master's programmes for long-term professional education and support to PhD programs.

VII. Discussion session

This session will provide an opportunity to discuss issues and concerns relating to the use of GNSS and to define a framework for a mechanism of regional cooperation. Participants will define activities that would contribute to increasing the use of GNSS technology in the region, and the format for a regional network that would enable the creation of partnerships.
