The meeting, entitled “GNSS Vulnerabilities, Innovation, and Policy (VIP) Workshop” was organized by the GNSS Coordinate Office at Industry Canada and hosted by the Federal GNSS Coordination Board on October 21st. Over 100 participants from foreign and Canadian government departments, academia and the private sector attended. Topics ranged from GPS and Galileo program updates, to GPS jamming and cyberthreats, to GNSS use in critical infrastructure such as the energy, utilities and telecom sectors, to GNSS precision positioning developments, and automotive, aviation, timing, and geoscience applications. The federal government aims to make use of such workshops to develop a national GNSS strategy.
