Academic Keynote:

Vincent Poor (Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA)

Privacy in Networks of Interacting Agents

Network localization and navigation often involve distributed agents, or sensors, who must exchange information in order to make inferences about their environments. Though such agents can clearly benefit from exchanging information, they may also wish to maintain a degree of privacy in that information exchange. Such situations give rise to a notion of competitive privacy, which can be explored through a combination of information theory and game theory. In particular, information theory can be used to characterize the tradeoff between privacy of data and the usefulness of that data for an individual agent, while game theory can be used to model the interactions between multiple agents each of whom is mindful of that tradeoff. These ideas will be explored in this talk in a general setting, and then particularly in the context of data exchange for distributed state estimation, in which specific solutions can be obtained. Other potential applications areas and open issues will also be discussed.

Industry Keynote:

Frank Schubert (Airbus Defence and Space, Germany)

From Space Receivers to Integrity on the Ground - Navigation Signal Processing at Airbus Defence and Space

The talk's first part will illustrate the diversity of applications of positioning and navigation by reviewing selected projects on the topic that are currently on-going in the Space Systems Division of Airbus Defence and Space. For example, we will show the peculiarities needed to make receivers for Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) work aboard satellites and the architecture of the future generation of the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS). Additionally, non-satellite-based systems for local positioning and guidance will be showcased, such as DeckFinder, a system for automated landings of aerial vehicles on ships' flight decks as well as I-Lite, an indoor localization system.The talk's second part will address selected technical aspects and challenges, as well as innovative solutions, for tracking of modern GNSS signals, robust navigation, and providing integrity for land users. We will also explain how the requirements from multiple projects govern the design and implementation of the Positioning and Integrity Performance Evaluator (PIPE), a tool which is not only being used for algorithm development for new GNSS software and hardware receivers but which also facilitates end-to-end simulations.

Biography

Dr. Frank M. Schubert obtained his Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering in 2007 from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany. From 2007 until 2011 he was a member of the scientific staff at the Institute of Communications and Navigation of the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Simultaneously, he was also part of the Wave Propagation and Interaction Section at the European Space Agency (ESA) in Noordwijk, The Netherlands, within the Networking/Partnering Initiative from 2008 until 2010. From 2009 until 2012 Dr. Schubert was an external Ph.D. student in the Navigation and Communications Section at Aalborg University (AAU), Denmark. He obtained the Ph.D. degree in wireless communications from AAU in October 2012. The following month he joined the PRS and Signals Department at Airbus Defence and Space in Ottobrunn, Germany, as a system engineer for navigation signal processing. He is currently working on receiver prototypes for Galileo’s Public Regulated Service, integrity algorithms for land-mobile users, and a testbed for the Navigation Land-Earth Station of the future EGNOS v3 system.
