Prof. Jiyun Lee in KAIST Aerospace Engineering department has been appointed as the Pacific Technical Advisor in the satellite division of Institute Of Navigation (ION) and the Associate Editor of the ION journal, Navigation.


Current research in the field of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) offers great potential to transform our society by providing position and time information anywhere, anytime. Satellite-based navigation systems encompass a variety of applications, including intelligence vehicle technologies, wireless safety communications, and aircraft guidance and control. However, a significant challenge to widespread commercialization of those positioning applications remains in ensuring precision, reliability, and, in particular, safety. As examples, let us consider vehicle fleeting on a highway, person in a situation of immediate rescue, or aircraft approaching to land at an airport. Any misleading information that would result in a significant positioning error presents serious hazard to human health and economic loss. Therefore, performance validation and specifically integrity assurance are critical to the commercialization of safety-sensitive information and transportation systems.
