ESA International Summerschool on GNSS 2014

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

The objective of this Summer School is to provide the attendees with a comprehensive overview on satellite navigation, starting from the GNSS system, its signals, the processing of the observations in a receiver and finally determining the position-navigation-time (PNT) solution. Many lab work will be carried out to get attendees really “hands-on”. In addition, lectures on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and Patents as well as on business aspects are given.

Satellite Images: Detecting Vegetation Health through Fluorescence

ESA potential satellite to map fluorescence

A potential new ESA satellite could use the fluorescence in plants to track health and productivity of vegetation worldwide. A likely candidate for the eighth ESA Earth Explorer, the Fluorescence Explorer (FLEX) would thus provide data for global maps of vegetation.
