On 4 November, Scottish Branch were introduced to the work of the General Lighthouse Authorities' Research & Radionavigation Department

Dr Paul Williams gave a wide-rangiing presentation on the issues surrounding GNSS vulnerability. He noted the various trials taking place within the ACCSEAS project including radar-based positioning and the use of R(ranging) Mode over the IALA beacon system. He also noted the recent announcement of Initial Operatiing Capability (IOC) of the GLA's eLoran system, trialling in 7 port areas on the East coast of the UK, including Aberdeen and the Forth.

This stimulated a lively conversation on the future of marine navigation.
