Chapter
Navigation Satellite Systems is a cross cutting technology that is used in many fields of modern life. Precise determination of position, velocity and time is particularly important in road applications and related technological solutions, which enable considerable improvements in traffic management and monitoring. In Vietnam, public transport vehi...
Chapter
Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) easily allow precise determination of position, velocity and time (PVT) enabling hundreds of different applications in almost any field of modern life, from transportation to logistics, from surveying to disaster management, from natural resources monitoring to services for citizens. In this field, the col...
Article
Biomass is a spaceborn polarimetric P-band (435 MHz) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) in a dawn-dusk low Earth orbit. Its principal objective is to measure biomass content and change in all the Earth's forests. The ionosphere introduces the Faraday rotation on every pulse emitted by low-frequency SAR and scintillations when the pulse traverses a regi...
Article
The ERICA study aims to find out signatures of the interplay between the magnetosphere-geomagnetic field and the ionosphere that degrade trans-ionospheric signals such as those transmitted by GNSS satellites. The project activity focuses on the characterization of the ionospheric variability of the Equatorial Ionospheric Anomaly in the South East A...

We investigate the geospace response to the 2015 St. Patrick's Day storm leveraging on instruments spread over South East Asia (SEA), covering a wide longitudinal sector of the low latitude ionosphere. A regional characterization of the storm is provided, identifying the peculiarities of ionospheric irregularities formation. The novelties of this w...

South East Asia is growing at an impressive pace as its GDP increased about 350% in ten years passing from about 650 Billion $ in 2002 to about 2300 Billion $ in 2012. Regional governments actively promote infrastructure, logistics and service development to create a favourable environment for a sustainable growth. Within this framework, GNSS appli...
Conference Paper
GINESTRA and ERICA are two projects funded in the framework of the ALCANTARA Initiative of the European Space Agency. GINESTRA is a survey aimed to explore the capabilities of ionosphere monitoring in South East Asia (SEA) and the Pacific region in order to identify institutions involved in this field and existing monitoring facilities which could...

Growing NAVIS (G-NAVIS), a EU-FP7 funded project, has been designed to boost scientific activities and international links of the NAVIS Centre, an International Collaboration Centre for Research and Development on Satellite Navigation Technology in South East Asia. This Centre, opened on 1st October 2010, is located in the Hanoi University of Scien...
Conference Paper
In recent years, research activities in the field of Satellite Navigation have boosted worldwide. At the same time, it has become evident that few educational opportunities in the field were available for students and there was a need to develop dedicated tools for hands-on sessions. To partially answer this need, the NavSAS Group has developed N-F...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The aim of the G-TRAIN project is to set up a framework for higher education addressing different academic (MSc, Specialising Master and PhD) and networking activities. Indeed, it has been identified that on the one hand there are not enough people trained in the field of satellite navigation in Europe to support the finalization of the Galileo sys...
Conference Paper
In the last decade, the world of Satellite Navigation has experienced an important change: while in late 90s the USA and Russia played a dominant role as only providers of global navigation satellite systems, the new century saw the arrival of new actors with projects for additional global and regional systems. Presently, many new systems are under...
Conference Paper

The aim of this paper is to introduce the GnssEduPack, which is a training kit in the field of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) which is oriented towards university students and GNSS application developers. The whole idea behind the GnssEduPack is to provide students with a new tool, which, beside providing theoretical background and expla...
Conference Paper
This paper presents the main features of NFUELS (FUll Educational Library of Signals for Navigation), a signal simulator designed to offer young researchers and students a complete, flexible and intuitive software tool able to offline reproduce and analyze GNSS signals as they appear at the Analog to Digital Converter output of a navigation receive...
Conference Paper
NavSAS is a joint laboratory between Politecnico di Torino and ISMB, a non-profit research Centre on ICT technologies. It has worked since its foundation to merge R&D in satellite navigation with education by facilitating a continuous transfer between these two worlds. NavSAS staff has a long-lasting teaching experience in university courses. On to...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Satellite Navigation and its applications are becoming more and more important. In Europe, the European Commission confirmed the public funding of the European Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Galileo. In this framework, new educational needs have arisen. A recently conducted survey has highlighted a general lack of educational material on...
Conference Paper
Summary form only given. The speech will first introduce the actions that EU is conducting in the field of Satellite Navigation (Galileo, etc.) and that are the base for the creation of a collaboration centre in Vietnam. Then it will focus on some of the most recent activities that have been jointly carried on by European and Vietnamese institution...

The master program on navigation and related applications is a post-graduate study for Master's Degree on Global Navigation Satellite Systems in Italy. It is a joint initiative of Politecnico di Torino and Istituto Superiore Mario Boella, a non-profit research centre under private law. Although based in Italy, the Master Program is offered to stude...
Article
Butterworth and Square—Root—Raised—Cosine (SRRC) filtered OQPSK, and GMSK with BT = 0. 5 and BT = 1 are compared in the presence of narrow band and wide band interferers, over AWGN and nonlinear channels. The purpose of this work is to help finding out the most suitable modulation scheme for the increasingly crowded frequency bands available for sp...

This paper proposes a beamforming design method for interference cancellation using a special thinned array structure, termed minimum redundancy array (MRA). MRA is analyzed with partially adaptive beamforming design techniques and compared with corresponding uniform regular array (URA) over a set of likely interference scenarios. The partially ada...

Project
ROOT aims to assess the benefits introduced by the Galileo authenticated signals (OSNMA) in the specific context of synchronization of 5G telecommunications networks. Specifically, ROOT purpose is to estimate the increased resilience that OSNMA can bring to GNSS-based timing sources. This is obtained through an experimental approach which enables the measurement of the increased level of robustness provided by the use of a mix of emerging technologies.
