NaVSAS participation at the APRASAF-15 Meeting

Gabriella Povero and Gustavo Belforte, from NavSAS Group, are participating to the Asia-Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum (APRSAF) in Hanoi, Vietnam.

APRSAF was established in 1993 in response to the declaration adopted by the Asia-Pacific International Space Year Conference (APIC) in 1992, to enhance the development of each country's space program and to exchange views toward future cooperation in space activities in the Asia-Pacific region. The fifteen Session of APRSAF (APRSAF-15) is held in December, 2008 in Hanoi, Vietnam, jointly organized and co-sponsored by the Vietnamese Academy of Science and Technology (VAST), Vietnamese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).

NavSAS presentation, "Internationally embedded GNSS educational activities by ISMB and Politecnico di Torino", was within the "Space Education and Awareness" Working Group. G. Povero talked about the Master on Navigation and Related Applications, about the NAVKIT education tool and finally about the SAT-SURF Suite
(SAT-SURF hardware + SAT-SURFER software).
