BELS+ will participate in the FIG WORKING WEEK 2019. The BELS+ team will have a booth in the conference exhibition promoting the EU GNSS products hosted at the NAVIS Demo Centre in Hanoi, Vietnam, and it will organize a Special Session on Galileo and EGNSS.
The 2019 FIG Working Week is an exciting week-long conference that brings the international community of surveying and spatial professionals together to discuss key challenges of our time within the surveying profession with fellow peers. With the theme Geospatial information for a smarter life and environmental resilience the conference will focus on tackling the climate changes by working towards a smarter life both through the development of smart cities and also in rural areas. Spatial information, big data, surveying, BIM, land administration and much more are essential factors in this development.
A draft agenda of the BELS+ Special Session can be found below:
“Galileo: status and innovative solutions for precise positioning”
Galileo, the European Satellite Navigation System, is smoothly flying toward its Full Operational Capability Phase after providing Initial Operational Services to worldwide users since 2016. In this session, representatives of European Commission will bring news about the status of the Galileo system, its future developments as well as about scientific initiatives for the monitoring and prediction of ionospheric disturbances. In addition, information on the Galileo’s footprint in Asia will come from representative of the NAVIS Centre in Hanoi, which hosts the Galileo Demo Centre. This Demo Centre aims to be a permanent showcase of European GNSS technology in Asia. Some of the companies currently hosted in the Centre will present their most innovative solutions and research outcomes in the second part of this session.
