Global Navigation and Satellite Systems Vulnerabilities

Course Description

Signals from GNSS such as the GPS are very weak and suffer from a range of vulnerabilities . This 2 day course delivered by Prof Andrew Dempster examines all of the electronic and signal vulnerabilities that a receiver can experience from space weather to jamming and spoofing.

This course is suitable for those who have some knowledge of how GPS technology works. The course examines why these vulnerabilities are becoming an increasing threat to critical infrastructure, which parts of a receiver’s operation are affected and methods for detecting, mitigating and locating threats.

Target Audience

This course is intended for those who wish to gain a thorough overview of GNSS vulnerabilities, including engineers, scientists, students, technicians and managers.
