Venue: B106, New Main Building
We have come a long way from the early days of Transit satellite navigation to today’s parallel developments of multiple Global and Regional Satellite Navigation Systems (GNSSs). GNSSs have become so pervasive that they are now used in a broad range of science and engineering as well as in the everyday lives of billions of people worldwide. This presentation will be a personal journey through the various important scientific and engineering applications of multi-GNSS research, whereby also an outlook will be given to some of the exciting research challenges that lie ahead of us.
Peter Teunissen is Professor of Satellite Navigation at Delft University of Technology(Netherlands). He is a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, a foreign Fellow of the Deutschen Geodätischen Kommission Akademie der Wissenschaften, and a Fellow of the International Association of Geodesy.
He is a world authority on Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) positions and navigation and the inventor of the Least-squares AMBiguity Decorrelation Adjustment (LAMBDA) method for GNSS carrier phase ambiguity resolution.Professor Teunissen intends to address important and pressing theoretical and modelling issues for future GNSS applications to deliver high-precision, high-integrity positioning and navigation solutions.
Professor Teunissen obtained his PhD in geodesy at the Delft University of Technology. He was awarded the Constantijn en Christaan Huygens Fellowship by the Netherlands Organisation for the Advancement of Pure Research, and an ARC International Fellowship at Curtin University of Technology in 2007. Professor Teunissen was awarded the Alexander von Humboldt Research Award in 1996, and the International Association of Geodesy Guy Bomford Prize in 1987.
He was Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Geodesy. He is editor of more than 10 top journals including GPS solutions. He had published more than 260 papers and 7 books.
