NavSAS Group at the ICG 2008 in Pasadena, USA

The International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems "is established on a voluntary basis as an informal body to promote cooperation, as appropriate, on matters of mutual interest related to civilian satellite-based positioning, navigation, timing and value-added services, as well as the compatibility and interoperability of global navigation satellite systems, while increasing their use to support sustainable development, particularly in developing countries. Participants are system providers, international governmental organizations and international non-governmental organizations." The initiative is sponsored by the United Nations and the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs.

The third ICG is hosted by the United States of America in Pasadena, California. The five day long meeting (8-12 December) is taking place within the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the California Institute of Technology and the offices of the International GNSS Service Central Bureau located at JPL.

The NavSAS Group is participating with a delegation. Our projects will be presented in the next days. More posts will be added, stay tuned!.
