TITLE: Security of Satellite Navigation Systems
Presentation slides: Satellite Navigation Security
ABSTRACT: The Arctic is becoming increasingly relevant, as the polar ice shrinks and the competition for resources increases. Global satellite platforms with high integrity and availability represent a prerequisite for a commercial exploitation of the North-East Passage, for stable positioning of floating drilling ships and platforms. This is also a challenge that Norway should respond to with its obligations in the North Sea and the Arctic. The security of satellite navigation systems is critical to many critical domains, such as airplane and ship navigation, time stamping of financial transactions, as well as border control and defense. This talk look at the functionality and security of Galileo, and Norway's role in supporting this system.

He has a Bachelor of Science from the University of Maryland, a Master of Management from BI, and was for two years the national expert representative in the European Commission, for policy development in the Galileo program. He is coordinator of the GNSS program in NSM and represents Norway in several international security forums.
