Central aim of organisation
The Institute performs research, development, and teaching with emphasis on positioning, navigation, and satellite geodesy.
Briefly describe your organisation
The Institute of Navigation and Satellite Geodesy (INAS), headed by Prof. Dr. B. Hofmann-Wellenhof, performs research, development, and teaching in mathematical and numerical techniques in contemporary geodesy, with emphasis on positioning, navigation, and satellite geodesy. In addition to a wide experience in terrestrial and satellite-based positioning and navigation (GPS, GNSS, Loran-C, INS), it has developed extensive competence in global gravity field recovery based on satellite sensor data, the solution of large systems of equations, the treatment of general optimization problems, in the statistical analysis of geodata, and in all matters related to geolocation.
INAS has also an experience in the organization of scientific research projects and symposia. It has also participated in numerous, national and international, scientific research projects.

Austrian Research and Development Projects
Positioning and navigation:
GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo), terrestrial and satellite-based surveying campaigns, integrated navigation, multi-sensor systems incl. Kalman filtering, inertial navigation, dead reckoning, location-based services (for blind and visually impaired people, web-based routing service, search and rescue applications, etc.), regional geoid determination.
Global gravity field recovery (incl. statistical and numerical techniques, solution of very large systems of equations), geophysical modelling, geodetic satellites, future satellite missions concepts.
Series of Springer text books on Navigation, GNSS, Physical Geodesy, etc.
