Watch on Demand: From GPS to GNSS

Moderator Dr. Christopher Hegarty leads a panel discussion on how GPS has transformed to GNSS and why we need new standards for the evolving technology. As more satellite constellations are deployed, RTCA and EUROCAE are working together to create globally harmonized standards for Dual-Frequency Multi-Constellation avionics to get the most out of the new system. The panel is intended to educate the audience on how GPS technology has evolved, what it means to aviation, and the strategy driving the technology that’s captured in the new standards.  Panelists include Barbara Clark of FAA, Laurent Azoulai of Airbus, Dr. George Ligler of Texas A&M and others.  RTCA’s William E. Jackson Award presentation follows the discussion. WATCH
