Munich Satellite Navigation Summit – 2019
From the 25th to the 27th of March 2019, BELS+ will be in Munich for the Munich Satellite Navigation Summit. The Munich Satellite Navigation Summit is an conference with global impact dealing with satellite navigation now and in the future. The one-of-a-kind convention of high-ranking worldwide speakers from industry, science and governments provides the participants with a broad overview and different perspectives on the latest developments in the field of GNSS.
BELS+ will participate to the 2019 Munich Satellite Navigation Summit with a booth in the main exhibition area (we will update the news with our booth number when it will be available). Our team will present the first BELS+ Call for Expression of Interest to participate in the GNSS Demo Centre at the NAVIS in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Are you a Southeast Asian GNSS expert coming from an ASEAN country? BELS+ can help you to participate in the 2019 edition of the Munich Satellite Navigation Summit in Germany!
The call is open! Ckick on the following picture to download it.
Deadline: 4th March 2019, 11:00 am CET
BELS+ at the FIG Working Week in Vietnam – 2019
The 2019 FIG Working Week in Vietnam will give opportunities to European companies to show their EGNSS applications and solutions to South East Asian GNSS stakeholders.
BELS+ will participate in the FIG WORKING WEEK 2019 with 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.
Part I – Key note speeches – Chairwoman: Ms. Baerbel Deisting – bavAIRIa
Key Note Speech 1 – “Galileo: status and perspectives”– Ms. Pavlina Nikolova, EC DG GROW
Key Note Speech 2 – Galileo new service for High Accuracy applications (draft title) – Joaquim Fortuny-Guasch, EC Joint Research Centre, Ispra
Part II – Technical presentations – Chairman: Prof. Ta Hai Tung – HUST
Presentation 1 – Countering ionospheric effects on EGNSS at low-latitude, Claudio Cesaroni, Vincenzo Romano, Luca Spogli, SpacEarth Technology
Presentation 2 – Precise position determination and generation of top-actual maps with ANavS Multi-Sensor RTK module, Dr. Patrick Henkel, ANavS GmbH
Presentation 3 – NSL (TBD)
Presentation 4 – IfEN (TBD)
BELS+ will also carry on a one day Professional Training Event as side event of the FIG Working Week 2019 in Hanoi, Vietnam.
The registration is available at the following link fig.net/fig2019
The BELS+ Training day is a course on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) data processing which focusses on the suverying domain. The training covers in detail in the study of the concepts and techniques used in the high-accuracy positioning by means of GNSS. The theoretical foundations for Standard and Precise Point Positioning (SPP, PPP) are presented, focusing in the instrumental use of the concepts and techniques of GNSS navigation. In particular, the different terms involved in modelling the code pseudoranges and carrier-phase measurments (relativistic effects, atmospheric propagation effects at troposphere/ionosphere, instrumental delays, clock synchronism, etc.). The processing algorithms are discussed in detail and implemented through guided exercises in the laboratory session based on the ESA/UPC GNSS Laboratory tool suite (gLAB), where the impact of the modelling accuracy is assessed in the positionin domain.
Also during the training course, participants can practice with NAVISIM – a Softwared Defined Radio GNSS signal generator – which can be used in laboratory for testing and validating the operation of GNSS receivers in different harsh real-world scenarios, as well as for training GNSS users (surveyors).
- participants equipped with their own laptop with administrator rights so as to be able to install gLAB tool
- gLAB will be distributed on a USB pen-drive

European Space Week – 2018
The European Space Week brings together business and public sector with users and developers of systems using space technology and satellite services. After Brussels, London, Munich, Prague and The Hague, Marseille will be the host for the event in 2018, this time beginning of December (3-6). The ristration form is available at the following link.
Kicking off with the 2nd European GNSS User Consultation Platform and the 5th European Space Solutions Conference, presenting the latest space-powered answers to today’s business challenges, European Space Week 2018 will examine how Europe is using space to tackle challenges in such diverse areas as sustainable development, mobility, defence, economic development and the environment.
At the European Space Week plenary session, participants will learn more about the state of the art of Galileo, EGNOS and Copernicus, with input from keynote speakers and high-level officials, including Commissioner for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs Elżbieta Bieńkowska, GSA Executive Director Carlo des Dorides, French Space Agency (CNES) President Jean-Yves Le Gall and many more.
Parallel sessions dedicated to Smart Cities, Sustainable Land Management, Interconnectivity, Marine and Maritime, Infrastructure Management, Security and Defence will examine how European businesses, entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized companies can harness the power of space technology to build the innovative applications and services needed in these areas.
Digitalisation and space help to connect continents: The European Space Week 2018 will host presentations on EGNSS applications, challenges and solutions related to South East Asia and its markets.
BELS+ will participate to the European Space Week possibly with a booth in the main exhibition area (we will update the page with our booth number when it will be available). Our team will present the first BELS+ Call for Expression of Interest to participate in the GNSS Demo Centre at the NAVIS in Hanoi, Vietnam.
