Through the cooperation with ISMB - NavSAS, the NAVIS Centre hosts a GNSS monitoring station of European Space Agency (ESA). The purpose of the station is for scientific research and training activities of NAVIS, ISMB - NavSAS and ESA in connection with the Multi-GNSS environment.
The NAVIS Collaboration Centre is located in the premises of Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), Vietnam. It was officially opened on 1st October 2010. The Centre set up was co-funded by the “South-East Asia centre on European GNSS for international cooperation And Local development” (SEAGAL) FP7 project. NavSAS is still collaborationg with NAVIS trough the FP7 funded Growing NAVIS project. NAVIS is based in Hanoi but aims to cover the entire South-East Asian region. The mission of the Collaboration Centre is to act as linking entity between Europe and South East Asia in the field of GNSS. NAVIS aims to ease cross-links between EU and South-East Asia actors to promote European Global Navigation Satellite System. Today NAVIS is carrying on many research activities. In particular, NAVIS has developed its own fully-software multi-GNSS receiver and its researchers are studying algorithms for multi-GNSS receivers, interference and multipath mitigation techniques. Precise positioning and ionosphere monitoring are also in the research interest of the Centre together with applications of GNSS technology.
