GUF - Galileo User Forum Workshops
is the Czech initiative involving the end-users of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) applications. The main organizer is the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic.Through these workshops GUF participants share professional discussions with European institutions responsible for the development of satellite navigation - the European Commission, European GNSS Agency (GSA) and the European Space Agency (ESA).
GUF workshop objectives
These workshops are designed to formulate common standpoints and recommendations to end-users, which should be taken into account in the development of satellite navigation systems and their implementation in practice.
The main objectives of the workshops are not only a presentations of current trends and technical capabilities of satellite systems for specific regions, but also defining the needs and requirements of end users for future GNSS satellite navigation systems, primarily for the future European system Galileo. These discussions help to define requirements and improvements for future services guaranteed by Galileo, which the current satellite navigation systems do not provide.
GUF workshops themes in general
Although most GNSS applications find its place in transportation, the Ministry of Transport also monitors adjacent sectors, which represent considerable potential of global navigation satellite system market.
