New Navigators 2014

The RIN’s annual event that puts the best and brightest new nav research students in a room with some to the leading companies in the navigation world

The Satellite Applications Catapult at Harwell hosted the 9th Royal Institute of Navigation New Navigator Seminar on 26 June. This event is organised annually by RIN’s Research and Development Special Interest Group to allow PhD students and other young researchers an opportunity to present their cutting-edge positioning and
navigation work to a sophisticated and knowledgeable audience of academics, industrial researchers and other students.

The winner, and New Navigator for 2014 was Christopher Pearson, from the University of Newcastle upon
Tyne. His presentation was entitled Simultaneous Uncalibrated Phase Delays and Satellite Clock Estimation for PPPRTK. He was selected as champion by the expert evaluation panel as demonstrating both original work of high calibre, and competence in presenting and explaining his research. Silver medal position in the competition
was awarded to Kimon Voutsis of University College London for his paper The Importance of Human
Motion for Simulation Testing of GNSS.

We congratulate all New Navigators for 2014.
