NNF webinars 1Q 2022

17. 01

The NNF is happy to announce that our series of navigation seminars continues in 2022.

On the 27th of  January 2022 at 15:00 CET Kongsberg will present their work on "R-Mode" navigation

The R-Mode Baltic project was a EU/Interreg funded project focusing on using IALA DGPS Beacon system (MF based) and VHF Data Exchange System (VDES) as signal of opportunity to create a terrestrial navigation system. The project intended to demonstrate capability using existing transmitter locations and conclude on whether it could be used as backup or contingency system. The presentation will embrace VDES and VDES used as signal of opportunity for R-Mode.

On the 10th of March 2022 at 15:00 CET Daniel Olesen of the Technical University of Denmark will present "Positioning of small drones in GNSS degraded environments":

Abstract:  Positioning and navigation in GNSS degraded environments poses a challenge for all types of vehicles, but small drones especially are a challenged as weight, size and cost constraints tends to be more critical than for other platforms. In this talk, two different drone projects using sensor fusion for operations in GNSS degraded environments are presented. The first project is about the development and design of a deeply-fused GNSS/INS system for more robust positioning and improved satellite tracking in GNSS degraded environments. The second project is about the development of a relative vision-based positioning system for a string-suspended magnetometer payload for Unexploded Ordnance (UxO) detection. The necessity of making a relative positioning system for the free hanging magnetometer is to minimize electromagnetic interference and noise which would degrade the measurement integrity.
