    B2. IAF SPACE COMMUNICATIONS AND NAVIGATION SYMPOSIUM

    This symposium, organized by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF), examines development in space-based systems, services, applications, and technologies as they relate to fixed, broadcast, high-throughput, and mobile communication services as well as, position determination, navigation and timing services. The symposium addresses the geostationary systems as well as non-geostationary systems and constellations.

    B2.4. Advances in Space-based Communication Technologies, Part 1

    This session is focused on all aspects of payload, spacecraft, and Earth station technologies for space-based communications and data relay. It covers applications ranging from those used in nanosatellites to those applicable to large, high throughput systems, and integrated applications and services. It includes modulation and coding, propagation, power amplifiers, adaptive transmit technologies, inter-satellite links, laser technology (as applicable to communications), antenna (including phased array) design, Q/V band technologies, onboard processing, digital payload technologies, security including quantum key distribution via satellite, and other technology relevant to satellite communication.

    B2.6. Advances in Space-based Navigation Systems, Services, and Applications

    This session is focused on advances in space-based navigation systems, including the existing global systems (Beidou, Galileo, GLONASS, GPS) and regional systems (EGNOS, IRNSS, QZSS, WAAS), as well as proposed and emerging new space-based systems. The session also addresses advances in the services and applications of those systems for position determination, navigation, time determination, and integrity assurance on Earth, Moon, and potentially other bodies of the solar system.

    B2.7. Advances in Space-based Navigation Technologies

    This session is focused on advances in technology applicable to space-based navigation systems. Technologies include hardware or software necessary for the entire navigation system (spacecraft, monitor and control system, end-user equipment) such as: sensors, star trackers, sensor fusion algorithms, space-born frequency standards, crosslink ranging techniques, etc. Technologies should be applicable to position determination, navigation, time determination, and integrity assurance on Earth, Moon, and potentially other bodies of the solar system.

    B2.VP. Virtual Presentations - IAF SPACE COMMUNICATIONS AND NAVIGATION SYMPOSIUM

    This session offers a unique opportunity to deliver your key messages in an interactive presentation on any of the subjects of Space Communications and Navigation addressed in the classic Sessions. The presentation will be displayed on a digital screen in a dedicated location and available for view by all Congress attendees for the entire Congress week. In addition, one afternoon is dedicated exclusively for the attendees to view the Interactive Presentations, and the author will be assigned a specific ten-minute slot to personally present the topic and interact with the attendees present. The Interactive Presentation may take advantage of all electronic display capabilities, such as: PowerPoint charts, embedded hot links, pictures, audio and video clips etc. An award will also be presented to the author of the best Interactive Presentation in the B Category at a special ceremony. An Abstract that follows the standard format must be submitted by the deadline for standard IAC abstracts.
