MUNICH High-ranking representatives of the international aerospace community are meeting today for the start of the Munich Satellite Navigation Summit aerospace conference at Munich's Residenz. From 25th to 27th March 2014, space flight experts here will discuss trends and prospects in satellite navigation. One of the focuses of this year's conference is on the implementation of the European Galileo system. Other topics at the event include the further development of the American GPS and Russian GLONASS systems, as well as the European global monitoring programme, Copernicus.
"Bavaria's importance as an aerospace location will continue to grow in the future. We want to expand the research structure further and bring business and science even closer together," explains Aigner. As a top class high-tech location, Bavaria offers ideal conditions for the aerospace sector. Figures from Invest in Bavaria, the Business Promotion Agency of the Free State of Bavaria, prove this. 2013 saw a significant increase in enquiries from companies from the sector, and the trend appears to be continuing in 2014. For example, Spectrum Aerospace Research Corporation GmbH recently opened an office in the ESA Business Incubation Centre in Oberpfaffenhofen.
