Navigation Technologies Research Area @ NAVITEC 2014

4 December 2014

Gianluca Falco from the Navigation Technologies Research Area is participating in the NAVITEC 2014 in ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands, which is taking place from the 3rd to the 5th of December, 2014. This is the 7th of a series of workshops hosted by the Radio Navigation Systems & Techniques Section (TEC-ETN) of European Space Agency. It will also include as part of its program, the European Workshop on GNSS Signals and Signal Processing. Special attention will be devoted in this edition to the multi-GNSS navigation technologies and techniques, signal design, signal processing and integration of navigation technologies with communication services.

Main topics of the workshop:

  1. results of Galileo IOV,
  2. receiver and user technology, 
  3. signal design and performance, 
  4. signal processing and algorithms,
  5. novel integrity schemes and user algorithms, 
  6. multi-GNSS technology, 
  7. hybrid navigation with multiple signals and sensors,
  8. multipath and propagation,
  9. interference, spoofing and authentication,
  10. space and scientific applications.

In details, Gianluca Falco will give two oral presentations, one on behalf of his colleague Davide Margaria:

  • Margaria D., Falletti E., Bagnasco A., Parizzi F, and Torchi A., "A New Strategy to Mitigate Side-Peak Lock Errors in Tracking Multi-Peak Code Correlation Functions";
  • Falco G., Tang X.H., Falletti E., and Lo Presti L., "Performance Comparision of a KF-based and a KF+VDFLL Vector Tracking-Loop in Case of GNSS Partial Outage and Low-Dynamic Conditions".

Two more posters will be presented as well:

  • Margaria D., and Falletti E., "The Local GNSS Integrity Concept: Feasibility and Experimental Validation in an Urban Vehicular Scenario";
  • Mort R., Crosta P., Giraud J., Judge K., and Pini M., "Standardisation of GNSS-based Location Systems Architecture and Performance in ETSI".
