The European Navigation Conference (ENC 2014) will be held 15 – 17 April in the World Trade Center in Rotterdam. A Forum on Resilient Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) will be held on the afternoon of Monday 14 April 2014, immediately preceding the Conference in the same venue.
The background to the event is the increasing reliance on Global Navigation Satellite Systems in all transport sectors and for essential infrastructure throughout Europe and internationally. The need to ensure resilience of systems, particularly for safety of life and commercially sensitive applications is driving interest in methods for improving robustness of systems to interference and the need for integrity monitoring and authentication methods.
The objective of the Forum is to bring together organizations with an interest in positioning, navigation and timing, to prepare a strategy for achieving resilient PNT in support of activities across all sectors.
