On Monday, November the 4th, Marco Pini and Gabriella Povero from Navigation Technologies Research Area will present the results of GINESTRA, one of the four competence survey funded by the Alcantara Initiative: Ionosphere Ground-based Monitoring in Low-latitude. The Final Presentation will take place at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) of the European Space Agency in Noordwijk, the Netherlands.
GINESTRA is a competence survey focused on Asia-Pacific Region and India. Its goal was to assess the current capabilities on ionospheric monitoring in the Region, in order to understand how existing facilities can be integrated with new installations to effectively support and improve space weather activities oriented to assist GNSS operations. GINESTRA partners represent a team of excellence, incorporating proved ionospheric theoretical know-how and technological background, especially in the field of GNSS. The team gathers researchers from: Istituto Superiore Mario Boella (Italy); Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (Italy); Politecnico di Torino (Italy); Hanoi University of Science and Technology (Vietnam).
