From 25 June to 3 July 2013, the representative of NAVIS, Dr. Ta Hai Tung, visited Torino, Italia for the International Conference on Localization and GNSS (ICL-GNSS 2013); the mid-term review of the Growing NAVIS project; as well as several research exchange activities with the NAVSAS laboratory at ISMB.

Dr. Tung was presenting at the ICL-GNSS 2013

At the ICL-GNSS 2013, Dr. Tung presented a paper titled: "Recent results in receiving and decoding signals from the Beidou system" co-authored with Truong Minh Duc, Tran Thanh Trung and Nguyen Dinh Thuan. The paper presents the research results of NAVIS on Chinese Beidou Navigation System, which has just broadcasted services to users in Asian - Pacific region since December 2012. At this moment, outside China, there are not mass-market Beidou receivers. The paper will be soon available on the IEEE Xplorer.

After the ICL-GNSS 2013, Dr. Tung also attended the midterm-review of the Growing NAVIS project. During the session, all WP leaders of the project presented the results in the first half of the project's life. Ms. Justyna REDELKIEWICZ MUSIAL, the representative of European GNSS Agency, also attended the review over teleconference from Prague. The review was succesful, which showed the quality of the acitivities carried on by the Growing NAVIS consortium. NAVIS, as a focal point of the project, will surely grow up with those results.

Discussions on research cooperations at ISMB

A part from the conference and the review, Dr. Tung also took the opportunity to have several important discussions with NAVSAS group at ISMB, and especially with the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of European Commission. Some important discussions with NAVSAS and JRC were conducted, which promise a fruitful research cooperations on satellite navigation among NAVIS, NAVSAS and JRC, especially in the field of ionospheric monitoring, which is now catching the great attention of the GNSS community. Located near the equator where the ionosphere anomaly is visible and not well understood, NAVIS can play an important role in doing research in this field.
