JAXA Visits the Navigation Technologies Research Area and ISMB

6 November 2014

Tomorrow, on 7th of November, Hiroaki Tateshita from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) will visit the Navigation Technologies Research Area and ISMB. Mr. Tateshita takes care of the Multi-GNSS Asia (MGA) campaign activities organized by JAXA. MGA is an organization whose aim is to promote multi-GNSS utilization and applications in the Asia and Oceania region.

The Navigation Technologies Area of ISMB and JAXA/MGA collaborated in 2012, 2013 and 2014 for the organization of the “Asia Oceania Workshop on GNSS” in three South-East Asian countries: Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand. This collaboration was possible thanks to Growing NAVIS, an FP7 project leaded by the Navigation Technologies Area.

Mr. Tateshita will provide a lecture on the status of the Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS), the Japanese regional navigation system, and on the JAXA activities in the field of GNSS from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM in Sala Andromeda at ISMB.

The Growing NAVIS – an FP7 project which is coordinated by the Navigation Technologies Area at ISMB – aims to boost the collaboration between the European and South-East Asian partners within the NAVIS, a research centre on GNSS founded by an another FP7 project in Vietnam leaded by the Navigation Technologies group, exploiting both the NAVIS research capabilities and the Multi-GNSS environment.
