Nottingham University, UK, launches sat-nav center

A US$18.5 million (£9 million) center for developing applications for GNSS is to be set up at Nottingham University, UK, with help from the East Midlands’ regional development agency (EMDA).

The GNSS Research and Application Centre of Excellence (GRACE) will provide research, training and other support for industry and entrepreneurs. The center’s work will focus on the growth in applications for satellite navigation and positioning systems, such as GPS and the Galileo system, which should be fully operational by 2013. A cross-disciplinary research center, it will also provide technology transfer and business development opportunities.

Nottingham professor Terry Moore says, “Satellite navigation is one of the most important growth technologies of the early 21st century. GPS will soon be joined by other systems, including Europe’s Galileo (right), and location and timing services provided by these systems are becoming a fundamental part of all our lives.

The university's pro-vice chancellor, Professor David Greenaway, says, “With EMDA we are investing not only in the university and region but in a national asset. There is enormous potential here and I expect significant benefits to follow, not only in terms of support for the business community but also in visibility for our region.”

The project combines a US$7 million (£3.4 million) grant from EMDA with university investment to develop the facility on the university's innovation park.
