Celebrating 50 years of GNSS: 

Navigating the next 50

It is a great pleasure to invite you to attend the

2024 IGNSS Conference

taking place at UNSW Sydney

Wednesday 7th - Friday 9th February 2024.

2023 saw the 50th Anniversary of the approval of the Global Positioning System (GPS) program by the U.S. Department of Defense. In the 50 years since Brad Parkinson and his team designed and built that revolutionary system, GPS has been joined by 3 other Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and 2 Regional Systems. Modern society is now heavily reliant on the Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) services that GNSS and other cutting-edge technologies provide.

GNSS2024 will open the next 50-year chapter of PNT, by bringing together experts, policy makers and emerging leaders in GNSS technology, products, and services to examine the latest advances, present cutting edge research and discuss policy, market development and infrastructure.

IGNSS2024 will also showcase the Southern Positioning Augmentation Network (SouthPAN) and other important developments by Governments in the region. There will of course also be updates from the major GNSS System Providers.

50 years since GPS kicked off the PNT revolution, we are realising that our reliance on this important technology has also made us vulnerable to the risks, including the increasing threats in jamming, spoofing and cybersecurity. So IGNSS2024 will enable like-minded professionals to gather in technical sessions and on the much-loved IGNSS Sydney Harbour Cruise, to discuss the many interesting and challenging issues affecting the future of PNT.

Sessions covered at IGNSS2024 will include:
  • Autonomy on land, air, sea and in space

  • Aviation and Avionics

  • Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems

  • Machine Guidance Applications in Agriculture, Construction and Mining

  • Maritime Applications

  • Unmanned Aerial Systems

  • Space applications of PNT in Earth orbit and for Lunar and Martian exploration

  • Positioning Infrastructure

  • GNSS Vulnerability, Resilience and Risk

  • Interference Detection and Mitigation

  • Policies and Standards

  • SBAS and Other Augmentations

  • Datums and Geodesy

  • National and International GNSS Developments

  • Emerging Application Areas for GNSS

  • Key Industries and their Reliance on GNSS

  • Embracing the Multi-GNSS Era

  • Cyber Security in PNT Applications and Infrastructure

  • Alternative PNT

  • State of the art in PNT algorithms and software development

  • GNSS Aiding and Sensor Fusion

  • Positioning in GNSS Denied Environments

  • Development of GNSS Receiver Hardware and Firmware

  • Precise position using Smartphones

We encourage Early Career Researchers as well as Industry R&D to present their work.

The abstract submission process will open very soon so please check back regularly or sign up to our email list to stay in touch.

​We hope you can join us!
