    This year’s ESA–Joint Research Centre International Summer School on Global Navigation Satellite Systems is taking place in July, in the spa resort of Loipersdorf, Austria. The 10-day course will cover all aspects of satellite navigation, up to and including the development of a potential satnav-based business. Participants will receive a full-spectrum overview of satellite navigation, starting from the theoretical basis of Global Navigation Satellite Systems, their signals and processing by receivers, and how the final ‘position–navigation–time’ solution is worked out. On the practical side, exercises will include receiving signals from Galileo and its fellow satnav systems.
