Speaker – John Pottle
Director Royal Institute of Navigation

 

How accurate is GPS? Do more satellites make for more accuracy? How do you know if you’re being jammed or spoofed? Can the US turn off GPS?

In addition to addressing these questions, the talk will review the latest alternative and complementary positioning technologies, the use of “big data” techniques and augmented reality.

The speaker joined the RIN as Director 
in 2017 Before this, he was in industry 
directing Spirent’s Positioning 
Technology business unit and as 
Commercial Development Director 
at Intelsat, Washington DC, USA.


There will be the opportunity for informal discussion in the Wardroom Bar before and afterwards.

Admission: FREE
