    Conference results

    On 30 May – 1 June 2016 the 23rd Saint Petersburg International Conference on Integrated Navigation Systems (23 ICINS 2016) was held by the Scientific Research Center of Russia – Concern CSRI Elektropribor, JSC.

    The Conference was held with support of the Scientific Council of the Russian Academy of Sciences on Motion Control and Navigation Problems, the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, the International Public Association – the Academy of Navigation and Motion Control, National Research University ITMO, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers - the Aerospace and Electronics Systems Society (IEEE-AESS), USA; L’Association Aéronautique et Astronautique de France (AAAF), L’institut Français de Navigation (IFN), Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Ortung und Navigation (DGON) (German Institute of Navigation), and Journal Giroskopiya i Navigatsiya (in Russian, published by the Concern CSRI Elektropribor, JSC, Russia).

    The International Program Committee formed of the leading scientists from France, Germany, Russia, and USA, headed the Conference.

    Chairman of the International Program Committee - Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Vladimir G. Peshekhonov

    The Conference languages were English and Russian.

    Provision was made for simultaneous interpretation from Russian into English and from English into Russian.

    Specialists from the following 14 states took part in the Conference: Belarus, Burundi, China, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Republic of Korea, Russia, Switzerland, Syria, Ukraine, USA.

    340 persons participated in the Conference; of them 53 specialists represented 22 foreign companies, and 287participants were delegated from 81 organizations of Russia from its 27 cities and towns.

    7 young scientists were delegated to the Conference without payment of Conference fee by the Organizing Committee of the 18th Conference of Young Scientists Navigation and Motion Control (held mainly in Russian).

    Conference presentations were distributed between the following 2 Sessions:

  • INERTIAL SYSTEMS AND SENSORS
  • INTEGRATED SYSTEMS
  • The Conference format comprised invited, plenary and poster papers, and a Panel Discussion.

    At the Conference sessions 106 papers were presented: 20 plenary and 80 poster papers, as well presentations at the panel Discussion Integrated Navigation Systems in Case of Absence or Severe Degradation of Satellite Information in the frame of which 1 invited paper (G. Trommer, Germany) and 5speeches (1 – Finland, 4 – Russia) were heard.

    Moderators of the Panel Discussion were Prof. G.F. Trommer (Institute of Systems Optimization, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany) and Dr. Sci. Prof. O.A. Stepanov (Concern CSRI Elektropribor, JSC, ITMO University, Russia).

    The Panel Discussion started with Prof. Trommer’s invited paper titled Autonomous Intrusion and Indoor Reconnaissance in Buildings in which the author presented an overview over the research activities of the Institute of Systems Optimization, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany) in the field of indoor and outdoor navigation in GNSS denied environment. Various aspects of the problem under consideration were covered by the rest 5 speakers in their speeches.

    All the interested persons could join the Panel Discussion free of charge.

    The Panel Discussion was of the great scientific importance due to its urgent subject and evoked the great interest of its attendees.

    Before the beginning of the Panel Discussion Prof. Trommer (as a commission chair of the German Navigation Society ‘Inertial Sensors’) handed Certificate of Appreciation “For outstanding long-lasting support as a session chairman at the international conference ‘Inertial Sensors and Systems (ISS)’ held in Germany” to Prof. Lukyanov.

    The authors of poster papers at the plenary session were given 3 min to present the main idea of the paper with 1-2 slides, if any; further discussion of papers was continued at the posters.

    Participants eagerly exchanged their opinions in informal discussions at the posters and on the sidelines of the Conference.

    Topics of the papers and discussions were scientific and technological achievements in such fields as Inertial Sensors, Navigation and Orientation Systems, MEMS Sensors and MEMS-Based Systems, Global Navigation Satellite Systems, Alternative Navigation including Pedestrian and Indoor Navigation Systems and Sensors, Guidance and Control Systems, and their Components, Integrated Navigation and Motion Control Systems. Each topic covered design features, methods and algorithms, application specific features (aerospace, marine, surface, underground), testing and metrology.

    The topics under consideration were quite urgent and evoked the interest of the companies from Russia and many foreign countries.

    According to participants’ estimates, the International Conference on Integrated Navigation Systems was successful and affirmed its status of the largest scientific event in the field of gyroscopic and navigation technology.

    The Conference has shown that Russian scientists conduct researches being in line with the most advanced global trends.

    By the Conference beginning the Conference Proceedings containing full texts of plenary and poster papers were published as books in English and in Russian (the Russian volume comprised the papers only by the Russian-speaking authors) and in the form of CD-ROM comprising the Conference Proceedings (in two languages together).

    During the Conference Ostec-Test company (Moscow) demonstrated a single-axis motion simulator. The simulator is intended for tests and calibration of inertial systems, sensors, gyros, SINS, MEMS. The test-bed evoked the great interest of the Conference participants.

    On 30 May 2016 after the Conference session a boat trip along the rivers and channels of St. Petersburg was organized for the conferees and their accompanying persons with the visit to the Peter and Paul Fortress.

    The tour participants enjoyed it very much and thanked the Organizing Committee for the interesting and informative tour.

    On 31 May a drink reception was held in the restaurant ‘Zimniy Sad’ (‘Winter Garden’) at Leningradsky Youth House.
