A 5 Day Faculty Development Program (FDP)
ATAL Academy – GNSS/ NavIC and Applications starting 21 Sep’2021being organized by University of Burdwan.
Global Navigation satellite system (GNSS) has become popular for myriads of applications due to the advantages of reliability, precision, availability and cost- effectiveness. Using satellite signals, GNSS provides accurate position, timing and velocity (PVT) information. As a result, multiple global (GPS from USA, GLONASS from Russia, Galileo from the European Union and Beidou from China) and regional (QZSS from Japan and IRNSS/ NavIC from India) systems are now operational. As per the GNSS Market Report (2019), the expected total GNSS business volume would be 2,525 billion Euros with applications sectors of consumer electronics, rail, road, aviation, maritime, surveying, logistics, agriculture, geomatics, timing and academic research. To maximize the use of multi-GNSS and to exploit the potential of NavIC, manpower training is required, that is aimed in this FDP.
The broad topics covered (not limited to) will be:
Basics of GNSS GNSS Positioning Methods GNSS Positioning Applications GNSS and Atmospheric research GNSS Business
Current Multi-GNSS situation GNSS error sources
GNSS Timing Applications IRNSS/ NavIC: the Indian advantage GNSS data processing hands on.
Organizing Institution and Department:
The FDP is being organized by GNSS Laboratory, Burdwan (GLB) (http://bugnss.in), in the Department of Physics, The University of Burdwan. The laboratory has been developed with financial support from SAC-ISRO, DRDO, AICTE, ITR-DRDO, SERB-DST and is engaged in theory and application of GNSS and NavIC.
