Course Details

Objectives: GNSS, Global Navigation Satellite System, defines a satellite-based system that allows autonomous positioning and navigation for a suitably equipped user in all locations and at all times.The MSc AS-NAT is a 2-year program offering advanced education in Satellite-based Positioning and Space Telecommunications.It aims to train students for the steadily growing GNSS industry. It is co-organized by ENAC and ISAE (Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace) in Toulouse, France.
Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSSs) have gained much worldwide attention due to a significant increase in applications using GPS for positioning and navigation (aeronautics, vehicular and pedestrian navigation, location-based services, etc).This international enthusiasm is confirmed by the worldwide development of other global and regional satellite-based navigation systems in Europe, USA, China, Russia, India and Japan, creating a strong need for experts in this field.The objective of this MSc in GNSS is to provide students with advanced skills and knowledge in the field of GNSS and its related applications, in order to prepare them to enter the highly dynamic GNSS and GNSS-dependent industry. In addition, the students receive training in telecommunications, as both fields are highly complementary.
