Dr. Nguyen Trang from VAST visited the NAVIS and the Galileo Demo Centre Print Email

On 7 May 2019 Dr. Nguyen Trang from Ho Chi Minh City Institute of Physics, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST) visited the NAVIS and the Galileo Demo Centre. Aim of the visit was to have more information about some equipment hosted in the Demo Centre.

Dr. Nguyen Trang is working in the field of ionospheric monitoring and modeling. Her institute is willing to buy a top quality GNSS receiver for supporting its research activities and the Demo Centre at NAVIS offers the unique opportunity to get technical advice while seeing and testing European GNSS solutions and equipment on show in the Centre.

 
Technical tour of FIG Working Week 2019 in NAVIS Centre Print Email

A technical tour was organized on 25th April 2019, in the context of FIG Working Week 2019, to visit the Hanoi University of Science and Technology and the NAVIS that is located at the university.

Dr. Bui Thi Ngoc Thuy, Deputy of International Cooperation Department, Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), introduced academic programs and research activities of HUST with international partners. Some RTD activities conducted at the NAVIS were then illustrated. Dr. Adria Rovira Garcia from Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya in Barcelona (Spain) and NAVIS Centre presented the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) entitled “High accuracy navigation under scintillation conditions (NAVSCIN)” whose scope is to develop an improved strategy to mitigate scintillation, a particular type of space weather perturbation. Finally a Software Defined Radio GNSS Simulator, developed at the NAVIS Centre and particularly suited for testing Black-Boxes equipping public transportation cars in Vietnam was presented.

BELS+ Training day at the FIG Working Week 2019 Print Email

On 21st of April 2019, The NAVIS Centre in collaboration with the BELS+ Project carried on a Training day as part of the event “Reference Frame in Practise Seminar and BELS+ Training” organized at the FIG Working Week recently held in Hanoi (FIG/IAG/UN-GGIM-AP/ICG/VGCR Technical Seminar). The training was opened by Ms. Ms. Pavlina Nicolova of the European Commission while Speakers from the Centre and from the BELS+ partners presented the Galileo systems with its features and provided training on Standard and Precise Point Positioning (SPP, PPP) techniques. Practical exercises where organized as well.

Mr. Nguyen Dinh Thuan from NAVIS Centre presented the NAVISIM a Software Defined Radio GNSS signal generator developed at the NAVIS Centre that can be used for testing and validating GNSS receivers in different real-world scenarios as well as for conducting RTD activities. Participants in the training had the opportunity to use the simulator and conduct some practical tests.
