IGNSS2020: International Global Navigation Satellite Systems

5 FEB 2020 | 9:00AM - 5:00PM
UNSW, Sydney

IGNSS is the SE Asian region’s premier conference on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and related Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) technologies.


The IGNSS conference for 2020 will once again be held in Sydney, Australia, running from February 5 - 7. IGNSS2020 is Australasia’s premier conference and exhibit for technology, products, and services in Positioning Navigation and Timing, including GNSS. IGNSS2020 is the place to examine the latest technology, present cutting edge research and discuss policy, market development and positioning infrastructure issues.

IGNSS 2020 will showcase hot topics such as the role of PNT in an era of increasing automation in transport and machinery. IGNSS2020 will not only address the wave of new opportunities but also the risks, including the increasing threats in jamming, spoofing, and cybersecurity. A feature of IGNSS2020 will be a showcase of demonstrators projects undertaken during the SBAS Test-bed project and the next steps in the Government’s Positioning Australia program. There will of course also be updates from the major GNSS System Providers as we move into the next decade of Multi-GNSS activity.

Topics open to the following and more:

  • Autonomy on land, air, and sea
  • Aviation and Avionics
  • Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems
  • Machinery Application in Agriculture, Construction and Mining
  • Maritime Applications
  • Uncrewed Aerial Systems
  • Positioning Infrastructure
  • GNSS Vulnerability, Resilience and Risk
  • Interference Detection and Mitigation
  • Policies and Standards
  • SBAS and Other Augmentations
  • Cyber Security in PNT Applications and Infrastructure
  • Datums and Geodesy
  • National and International GNSS Developments
  • Emerging Application Areas for GNSS
  • Key Industries and their Reliance on GNSS
  • Embracing the Multi-GNSS Era
  • Alternative PNT
  • GNSS Aiding and Sensor Fusion
  • Positioning in GNSS Denied Environments
  • Development of GNSS Receiver Hardware and Firmware
  • Precise position using Smartphones

We encourage Early Career Researchers as well as Industry R&D to present their work.
