Introductory remarks by the co-chairs of the action team on global navigation satellite systems

In 1999, at the Third United Nations Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, known as UNISPACE III, the participating States outlined the social and economic benefits of GNSS. Since then, GNSS have rapidly become an integral component of the emerging global information infrastructure, with applications including aviation, maritime and land transportation, mapping and surveying, agriculture, power and telecommunications networks, and disaster warning and emergency response, to name only a few. Particularly for developing countries, GNSS applications offer cost-effective solutions that make it possible to pursue economic growth without compromising on the need to preserve the environment, now and in the future, thus promoting sustainable development.
