2014 WSW Theme


The 2014 theme focuses on the relevance of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) for position, navigation and timing on Earth. This theme will highlight the many applications of GNSS in many fields.

Many of us carry GPS receivers in our pockets every day, sometimes without realizing that this is your personal connection to space!

  GNSS technology keeps improving!

In 2014 we will see new systems becoming available to the world.

In addition to the American GPS system, we have Russian Glonass, Chinese BeiDou and European Galileo systems. Lesser known to most people are the Japanese QZSS and Indian IRNSS systems. And there is a lot of supporting technology and applications, developed and used in almost all countries of the world.
