L’ITSS “Majorana-Giorgi” di Genova in orbita con i sistemi di navigazione via satellite

Primo Bartoli, Marco Lisi


The article describes an educational experiment: to spread technical know-how on satellite navigation (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) already at secondary school education level. The objective might look ambitious and difficult, but it is absolutely useful, if not necessary, also taking into account that Europe has been investing for years billions of Euros for the development of the global navigation system Galileo.
The experiment was carried on with the students of the course of Electronics and Telecommunications (academic year 2013/2014) at the Instituto Tecnico Superiore Statale (ITSS) “Majorana-Giorgi" of
Genova. With the support from prof. Primo Bartoli and from Marco Lisi of the European Space Agency, the students realized, with a very small economic investment, a semiprofessional monitoring station for
GNSS satellites (GPS, GLONASS or Galileo), based on a commercial multi-constellation receiver and on a software program developed in National Instruments LabVIEW, with the dual aim to explore the techniques of satellite navigation and to provide an attractive teaching aid for universities and secondary level technical institutes.
