|15:05||15:50||Land Application of GNSS Reflectometry
Guest Speaker: Professor Kegen Yu: China University of Mining and Technology, Xuzhou, China
GNSS reflectometry (GNSS-R) is an emerging remote sensing technology, which has been widely investigated especially over the past two decades. Many spaceborne missions, airborne and ground-based experiments have been conducted and a large amount of data have been recorded. In this presentation, we will first talk about some fundamentals of GNSS-R and then focus on two specific land application examples of this technology. One is land snow depth measurement and the other is soil moisture measurement. After studying the basic theory of retrieving the two parameters, we will present some experimental results.
Guest Speaker: Assistant Professor Chee Kiat Seow: University of Glasgow, UK
Global Navigational Satellite Systems (GNSS) are used to provide accurate time synchronisation and location information for various position, velocity and timing (PVT) application such as 5G cellular timing and autonomous vehicles/drones. However, GNSS signal is highly vulnerable to malicious jamming and spoofing compromising its safe usage especially on finance and smart transportation applications besides national security. This talk will give an introduction on GNSS vulnerability such as spoofing and share various few integrity protection mechanisms of the GNSS.
