The Summit starts on March 9, 2010, 17.00 hrs with the Opening Plenary Panel. A Bavarian State Reception in the famous ”Residenz München” is giving opportunities for networking. The technical program of the Munich Satellite Navigation Summit presents on March 10, 2010 a concise update on the main activities in worldwide satellite navigation systems, in particular on
- the progressing development of the European satellite navigation system Galileo,
- the modernization of the US Global Positioning System (GPS-III),

- the development of new satellite navigation systems like the Chinese COMPASS and the Indian GINS,
- the development of the regional navigation systems, like the Indian IRNSS and the Japanese QZSS,
- and other exciting worldwide activities in the receiver field and service creation.
The Munich Satellite Navigation Summit will further highlight the creation of new applications and services in
- satellite navigation, in combination with
- telecommunication and
- information technology, in particular geo-information technology
Various sessions will feature discussions among invited panellists talking about perspectives and critical issues in various rapidly growing application scenes of satellite navigation, in particular with Galileo. Brief presentations and statements of the panellists are initiating each session. An interactive question and answer period with the auditorium is closing the topic.
Emphasizing a future trend in satellite navigation, this year’s Summit will focus on special sessions on safety and security, in particular also on the use of the Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS).
Due to the great success again in 2010:
- An exhibition for industry and institutions is taking place during the conference.
- The Galileo Master competition will be opened.
The Summit is part of the efforts of the Bavarian government and the cluster on aerospace and satellite navigation to stimulate applications and services in this high-tech field in the greater area around Munich.
