Since 2015 he has been involved in the development of a Cloud GNSS receiver. Since 2017 he has also been pursuing a PhD at the SPCOMNAV group at the Department of telecommunication and systems engineering, IEEC-CERES, UAB, dealing with topics related to Cloud GNSS signal processing for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Gonzalo Seco-Granados received a Ph.D. degree in telecommunications engineering from Universidad Politècnica de Catalunya and an MBA from IESE, the graduate business school of the University of Navar- ra. From 2002 to 2005, he was with the European Space Agency, Netherlands. Since 2006, he has been an associate professor at the Universidad Autònoma de Barcelona, where he coordinates the SPCOMNAV (Signal Processing for communications and Navigation) group, IEEC- CERES. His research interests include signal-processing techniques for advanced features of GNSS receivers and localization using next-gen- eration wireless communications networks. José A. López-Salcedo received his Ph.D. degree in telecommunications engineering from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, in 2007. He is Associate Professor at the Department of Telecommunications and Systems Engineering, IEEC- CERES, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). He has held several visiting appointments at the Univer- sity of California Irvine, University of Illinois at Cham- paign-Urbana and the European Commission, Joint Research Centre in Ispra, Italy. His research interests lie in the field of signal processing for communications and navigation, with emphasis on cloud and IoT GNSS signal processing and the convergence of 5G/GNSS systems. José A. García-Molina is a Radio Navigation engineer at ESA/ESTEC in Noordwijk, The Netherlands, where he leads several R&D projects and internal research activities on GNSS receiver technology and signal processing techniques for ground and space applica- tions in the context of different ESA programs (including Galileo). His main research interests include signal processing and estimation theory, GNSS/Galileo receivers and signals, unambiguous estimation of high- order BOC signals, Cloud GNSS receivers, techniques and applications, collaborative positioning, and MIMO-GNSS signal processing. 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 Evo- lution 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 published, 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 naviga- tion 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. 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 WORKING PAPERS
