The Australasian GNSS and PNT community will come together in Sydney from 7 to 9 December for the 2022 IGNSS Conference.
IGNSS 2022 is Australasia’s leading conference and exhibition for technologies, products and services in positioning, navigation and timing, including GNSS.
Since the last conference, the Australian Space Agency and Geoscience Australia have begun developing a national roadmap for PNT, which outlines the capabilities of the PNT sector in Australia, as well as a decadal vision for new PNT capabilities and applications, including in space.
The PNT Roadmap is also building on Geoscience Australia’s work on the Positioning Australia program, including the partnership with New Zealand to deliver and sustain the SouthPAN SBAS.
At the conference, leaders in GNSS and PNT will examine the latest technologies, present cutting edge research and discuss in open forums the implications for policy, market development and positioning infrastructure deployment.
The topics to be canvassed include:
- Autonomy on land, air, sea and in space
- Aviation and avionics
- Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems
- Machine guidance applications in agriculture, construction and mining
- Maritime applications
- Uncrewed aerial systems
- Space applications of PNT in Earth orbit and for lunar and Martian exploration
- Positioning Infrastructure
- GNSS vulnerability, resilience and risk
- Interference detection and mitigation
- Policies and standards
- SBAS and other augmentations
- Datums and geodesy
- National and international GNSS developments
- Emerging application areas for GNSS
- Key Industries and their reliance on GNSS
- Embracing the multi-GNSS era
- Cyber security in PNT applications and infrastructure
- Alternative PNT
- State of the art in PNT algorithms and software development
- GNSS aiding and sensor fusion
- Positioning in GNSS-denied environments
- Development of GNSS receiver hardware and firmware
- Precise positioning using smartphones
In addition, IGNSS 2022 will examine the growing interest in alternatives to GNSS, including the hot topic of LEO PNT, in which constellations of low-Earth orbit satellites are being developed to deliver new PNT services.
There will also be updates from GNSS system providers as they start delivering new services such as signal authentication and increased accuracy.
Early career and experienced researchers, as well as industry representatives, are encouraged to participate and submit abstracts.
IGNSS 2022 is an initiative of the IGNSS Association, a not-for-profit association headquartered in Sydney and servicing a wide international network of academics and industry professionals.
