Centre for Professional Development CPD – Air University is organizing 5 Days Workshop on "Global Navigation Satellite System" starting from September 16, 2019
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is widely used in almost all systems that require absolute position and time. It is due to its accuracy, availability, reliability. In addition to GPS of the United States, several other systems such as GLObal Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) of the Russian Federation, the European global navigation system (Galileo) of the European Union, the BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) of China, the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS), India and the Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS), Japan are now available. Collectively, they are called GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System). GNSS can provide centimeter level accuracy with a low-cost receiver, if an error correction technique is used. Thus, availability of low-cost and high-accuracy receivers will eventually increase GNSS related applications and its market. In order to keep the pace with these new applications and developments, it is necessary to develop human resources and skills.
