Virtual 2020 ION GNSS+ Conference with SPACE participation

1 October 2020

The ISTA Institute was represented with seven contributions at the virtual conference. Thomas Kraus received the "Best Presentation Award".

With COVID-19 currently turning the world upside down, more and more companies are choosing digital solutions. This includes not only working from home but also virtual conferences and meetings. The Institute of Navigation (ION) organized the first major event this year in the field of navigation, the 2020 GNSS+. This meeting was completely online and a great success.

The Institute of Space Technology and Space Applications (ISTA) at the University played an active role in this event and presented seven research papers. In addition, Thomas Kraus was again honored with a best presentation award for his outstanding work.

The Institute presented the following papers at the meeting:

  • Concept of a Post-Correlation RFI Mitigation Approach Based on RFI Impact Estimation to the Correlations and Comparison with the Classical Pre-Correlation FDAF Method (Thomas Kraus, Thomas Pany, University of the Bundeswehr Munich)
  • Retrieval of Encrypted PRN Sequence via a Self-Calibrating 40-Element Low-Cost Antenna Array: Demonstration of Proof-of-concept (Dominik Dötterböck, MS Hameed, Thomas Pany, University of the Bundeswehr Munich; Lesjak, T. Rechti, Joanneum Research, Austria)
  • Multipath Error Modeling and Position Error Over-Bounding for Precise RTK Positioning using GNSS Raw Measurements from Smartphone for Automotive Navigation (Himanshu Sharma, Christian Lichtenberg, Thomas Pany, University of the Bundeswehr Munich)
  • New and Existing Signal Quality Monitoring Metrics Tested Against Simulations and Time Synchronized Signal Generator Attacks (Ronny Blum, Nikolas Dütsch, Carsten Stöber, Jürgen Dampf, Thomas Pany, University of the Bundeswehr Munich)
  • Closed-Loop GNSS / INS Simulation Chain with RTK - Accuracy for Sensor Fusion Algorithm Verification (Andreas Schütz, Mohamed Bochkati, Daniel Maier, Thomas Pany, University of the Bundeswehr Munich)
  • Receiver Protocol and Pitfalls of NMA and SCA Processing under Spoofing Conditions for Future GNSS Signals Authentication (Markel Arizabaleta, Thomas Pany, University of the Bundeswehr Munich; Scuccato, A. Dalla Chiara, Qascom, Italy; Cillian O’Driscoll, Cillian O’Driscoll Consulting Limited, Ireland; Hanley, Queen’s University Belfast, Ireland)
  • Effect of Antenna Ports on TOA Estimation with 4G LTE Signals in Urban Mobile Environments (Chun Yang, QuNav; Thomas Pany, Petra Weitkemper, University of the Bundeswehr Munich)
