Dr Laura Ruotsalainen visited the NavSaS research group at the Politecnico di Torino for three months during the summer 2017. In Torino she worked in collaboration with the group’s scientists supervised by professor Fabio Dovis on GNSS and sensor integration for mitigating the effects of intentional interference.
NavSaS research activity is focused on design and development of new technologies and systems related to GNSS. Here’s what they say about their group:
“NavSAS – Navigation Signal Analysis and Simulation (NavSAS) is a joint research group between Istituto Superiore Mario Boella, a private no-profit research centre, and Politecnico di Torino, the oldest technical University in Italy. Our lab combines high-level research skills, typical of the academy, with the ability to propose and develop innovative solutions for industrial partners. We are focused on three main areas: (i) Analysis of new algorithms for multi-system receivers and development of real time GNSS receivers in SW radio technology; (ii) Design and development of embedded platforms, enabling new GNSS-based services; (iii) Development of HW and SW tools to support training and education activities on GNSS (http://www.navsas.eu/).”
During the visit, Dr Ruotsalainen visited also EU’s Joint Research Centre (JRC, https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en) hosting e.g. large anechoic chamber for testing interference, also for GNSS intentional interference.
