She received a M.Sc. degree in signal processing and computing from Aalborg University (AAU), Denmark, in 2014. Since 2015 she is a sys- tem engineer for navigation signals at Airbus Defence and Space in Munich, Germany. She is working on PRS receivers, channel modeling and tracking techniques with focus on multipath mitigation. Rudolf Kohl is an engineer for communications and navigation technology and senior advisor for naviga- tion products at Airbus Defence and Space GmbH in Munich, Germany. He received his diploma in com- munication engineering in 1980 from the Technical University in Munich. He designed and built several radio frequency items, like highly efficient solid state power amplifiers, and linearizers, the first European Rubidium atomic frequency standard in space, and also the first X/Ka-Band transponder for deep space missions, before he became a navigation sys- tem engineer still at the same company. His pet subjects are now GNSS signals and receivers. Rigas Themistoklis Ioannides received the B.Eng degree in electronic engineering from the University of Lancaster, Lancaster, U.K., in 1995, the M.Sc degree on "Communication and Real Time Electronic Systems" from the University of Bradford, Yorkshire, U.K, in 1997, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Leeds, Leeds, U.K., on modeling and correcting of ionospher- ic effects on GPS signals, in 2002. He works in the TEC ESN section at the RF Payload Systems Division at ESA-ESTEC in support of Radio-Navigation Activities and Support to the Galileo Project and Galileo Evolutions. His main research interests include GNSS signal design, GNSS receiver processing techniques, integrated sensors architectures, authentication techniques and integrity concepts for GNSS systems. Christian Wullems is currently working in the Radio- navigation Systems and Techniques section in the Directorate of Technical and Quality Management at the European Space Agency (ESA) ESTEC in Noord- wijk, Netherlands. His current role at ESA includes sup- porting European railway industry in the exploitation of GNSS for safety-related applications in railway, and in particular, evolutions related to the European Rail Traffic Management System. His research interests are predominantly in topics related to railway safety and GNSS. Wullems has a Ph.D. in informa- tion security and a postgraduate diploma in rail accident investigation. Em. Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Dr. h.c. Guenter W. Hein is Professor Emeritus of Excellence at the Univer- sity 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 Summerschool on GNSS. He is the founder of the annual Munich Satellite Navigation Summit. Prof. Hein has more than 300 scientific 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 significant 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 achievements in satellite navigation with a Doctor honoris causa in Jan. 2013. He is a mem- ber of the Executive Board of Munich Aerospace since 2016. 2018 JOINT NAVIGATION CONFERENCE Military Navigation Technology July 9–12, 2018 Tutorials: July 9 Show Dates: July 10–11 Hyatt Regency Long Beach, California Classified Session: July 12 The Aerospace Corporation Sponsored by the Military Division of the Institute of Navigation The Foundation for Military Ops
