It was the first in-person society convention in a while since the new coronavirus outbreak. It was a lively conference with many participants.

I also presented my research at the space, aeronautical and navigation electronics session. The title is “Comparison of orbit augmentation information between Michibiki MADOCA-PPP and Galileo HAS.” In satellite positioning, augmentation, the use of external information, improves the positioning accuracy. This presentation analyzes two currently available augmentation signals.

When I was taking a walk around the campus in the morning before the conference started, I came across Nagoya University’s botanical garden (outdoor observation garden). The park actually opens at 10am, but we were able to open early and take a tour of the park.
