Spaceopal Leads Discussions on High Accuracy Navigation Services and PPP at Munich Satellite Navigation Summit
Navigation Summit, held from March 13 to 15, brought together industry experts and decision makers to discuss the latest developments and challenges in the field of satellite navigation and space sustainability. Spaceopal, one of Europe’s leading providers of global navigation services, played an active role in the Summit’s sessions and discussions.
On the second day of the Summit, Spaceopal hosted a roundtable discussion on applications for the evolution of high accuracy navigation services. The session was chaired by Emiliano Agosta, Technical Director, and Sebastian Fedeli, Sales & Procurement Director, both from Spaceopal. The discussion focused on innovative solutions for the next generation of high accuracy navigation services, and included the participation of key stakeholders from the European navigation, telecommunications and automotive sectors.
During the roundtable, Spaceopal highlighted its leading role in developing and operating the Galileo system, Europe’s global navigation satellite system. The Galileo system is designed to provide highly accurate and reliable positioning, navigation and timing services to users worldwide. Spaceopal’s experience in operating the Galileo system and its expertise in high accuracy navigation services were recognized by the other participants in the roundtable discussion.
In addition to hosting the roundtable, Spaceopal also participated in a session on Precise Point Positioning (PPP).
PPP is a very advanced and demanding technique within satellite navigation due to its high precision and global coverage. The session discussed ongoing technological developments for PPP and future applications of this technique, including the use of inter-satellite links and supporting satellites in low Earth orbit. André Bauerhin, Managing Director and COO of Spaceopal, participated as a panelist in this session.
On Session 3 Valerio Carandente, the Galileo Service Delivery Manager at Spaceopal, was one of the panelists at the Legal Session on GNSS and space sustainability, discussing the current mitigation policies employed by GNSS operators to address the issue of space debris in MEO.
