Authors Daniel Simon Maier has a pro- fessional training as a technical draftsman and received a bach- elor in Physics in 2015 and a master in Applied and Engineer- ing Physics in 2017 from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany. Since 2017 he has been a research associate at the Institute of Space Technology and Space Applications of the "Universität der Bundeswehr München." His current research inter- ests include GNSS signal generation, signal authentica- tion, and signal performance analysis. Thomas Kraus graduated with a M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Darm- stadt, Germany. In 2008, he joined the Institute of Space Technology and Space Appli- cations of the "Universität der Bundeswehr München." He's been working as a research associate on several projects of the German Space Agency (DLR) and European Space Agency (ESA-ESTEC). His main research focus is on future receiver design o•ering a superior detection and mitigation capability of intentional and unintentional interferences. Daniela Elizabeth Sánchez Morales studied Telematics Engineering at Instituto Tec- nológico Autónomo de Méxi- co (ITAM) in Mexico City. She also holds a Masters degree in satellite applications engineer- ing from the Technical Univer- sity Munich (TUM). She has been a research associ- ate at the Institute of Space Technology and Space Applications (ISTA) since 2017. Her main research area is sensor fusion. Her current research focuses on LiDAR, sensor fusion between LiDAR and GNSS/ INS, and relative and absolute navigation algorithms particularly for terrestrial applications. Ronny Blum received his Mas- ters in Physics from the Univer- sity of Basel, Switzerland. He then worked at Würth Elek- tronik in the field of signal transmission and later on at the Forest Research Institute in Freiburg im Breisgau in the želd of GNSS reception within the forest. In 2017 he joined the University of Federal Armed Forces Munich, where he is working in the želd of GNSS software receiver. Prof. Thomas Pany is with the Universität der Bundeswehr München at the faculty of aerospace engineering where he teaches satellite navigation. His research includes all aspects of navigation rang- ing from deep space navigation to new algorithms and assembly code optimization. Currently he f ocuses on GNSS signal process- ing for Galileo second genera- tion, GNSS receiver design, and G N S S / I N S / L i D A R / c a m e r a fusion. To support this activi- ties, he is developing a modu- lar GNSS test bed for advanced navigation research. Previously he worked for IFEN GmbH and IGASPIN GmbH and is the architect of the ipexSR and SX3 software receiver. He has around 200 publications including patents and one monography. Em. Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Dr. h.c. Guenter W. Hein is Professor Emeritus of Excellence at the University FAF Munich. He was ESA Head of EGNOS & GNSS Evolution Programme Dept. between 2008 and 2014, in charge of development of the 2nd generation of EGNOS and Galileo. Prof. Hein is still organising the ESA/JRC International Summer- school on GNSS. He is the founder of the annual Munich Satellite Navigation Summit. Prof. Hein has more than 300 scientižc and technical papers pub- lished, carried out more than 200 research projects and educated more than 70 Ph. D.´s. He received 2002 the prestigious Johannes Kepler Award for "sustained and signicant contributions to satellite navigation" of the US Institute of Navigation, the highest worldwide award in navigation given only to one individual each year. G. Hein became 2011 a Fellow of the US ION. The Technical University of Prague honoured his achieve- ments in satellite navigation with a Doctor honoris causa in Jan. 2013. He is a member of the Executive Board of Munich Aerospace since 2016. April 8-11, 2019 Hilton Waikiki Beach Honolulu, Hawaii PACIFIC PNT Aloha from Save the Date!
