The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) – User Meet 2015 will be held here on October 8.

It will bring together GNSS-based industries – receiver manufacturers, PNT service providers, application developers, content providers and the user community along with the academia on a common platform.

The meet is being organised jointly by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and Airports Authority of India (AAI) at ISRO Satellite Centre here.

Theme of the meet According to an ISRO release, the theme of the meet is ‘Towards Self-Reliance in Satellite Navigation.’ The meet is being held as India has entered into the realm of satellite-based navigation with its two pioneering projects, Gagan and IRNSS.

“With the certification of Gagan for precision approach and IRNSS providing independent positioning with four satellites, the time is apt to gather the Indian GNSS community,” the release added.

Besides academia-industry linkage, it also aims to explore various avenues to utilise the Indian satellite-based navigation services for the socio-economic benefits of the country.
