  • Operation of GNSS ground and space segment
  • Maintenance of system and data integrity
B: GNSS Algorithms & Techniques
  • Multi-system radio-navigation and digital signal processing
  • High-accurately positioning w./o. augmentation services
  • Ranging/positioning in critical environments
  • Integrity evaluation within PNT systems
C: Resilience and Autonomy
  • Challenges of autonomous operated systems regarding reliability and resilience of technologies
  • PNT solutions for autonomous operation
