Parthenope University of Naples, Italy
Safety of life on the sea depends strictly on accuracy and reliability of information about sea vehiclesposition (on surface or underwater) and how this information is managed. The purpose of this special session is to verify how recent and innovative geomatics solutions could improve the safety of navigation,providing new techniques to store, process and represent spatial referenced data but also delivering more accurate information about the surveyed environment around the sea vehicle.
Salvatore Gaglione is Associate Professor at the Science and Technology Department of the University of Naples "Parthenope" and scientific director of the PArthenope Navigation Group (PANG) Laboratory. On 2010 he was Visiting Academic at "Department of Geomatics Engineering” at the University of Calgary. In the last Academic year, He gives lecture in field of: Inertial and Integrated Navigation, Radio Navigation and Air Navigation. His research activities are focused on GNSS positioning and data fusion with other sensors (INS, Camera etc.) for several applications (vehicular, pedestrian, maritime, air).
Professor Gaglione is member and delegate for Europe of the "Istituto Italiano di Navigazione"(IIN), a scientific non-profit organization that promotes navigation culture.
He is the author of 60 publications on journals and international conferences.
