ISRO offers free online course on GNSS

Logo: Indian Space Research OrganisationA free 12-day online course on GNSS will be offered by the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), part of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).

“Overview of Global Navigation Satellite System” (Course-ID: 107) will be held Sept. 19-30. The course is designed to help with the urgent demand for trained manpower in remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), GNSS and associated geospatial technologies. The course will introduce GPS and GNSS, receivers, processing methods, errors and accuracy.

The course will cover the following topics:

  • GPS receivers, processing methods, errors and accuracy
  • satellite-based augmentation systems and GPS-aided and GEO-augmented navigation (GAGAN)
  • GPS signal characteristics and data formats (broadcast and precise ephemeris)
  • Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS)
  • DGPS demonstration
  • advanced GNSS processing
  • development of satellite navigation technology, TRANSIT, TSKLON, GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou), principles of GNSS, segments and applications
  • satellite navigation.

The course is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students; technical or scientific staff of central or state government; and faculty or researchers at university or institutions.

Course study materials — lecture slides, recorded video lectures, open-source software and handouts of demonstrations — will be made available through the IIRS learning management system E-CLASS.
