Our 2019 PNT Symposium was held on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 29 and 30, in the Kavli Auditorium at SLAC, about 3.5 miles west of the Stanford campus off Sand Hill Road.
As in the past two years, Tuesday, the first day of the 2019 PNT Symposium, featured student presentations. On Tuesday evening, a banquet dinner was held at the Stanford Faculty Club. During the dinner, David Goldstein, Director of Special Programs at SpaceX, spoke on the topic: How to Launch a GPS III Satellite in Ten Easy Steps.
Wednesday, the second day of the symposium, featured eleven invited speakers. Following the invited talks, we concludrd the symposium with a tribute to the life and legacy of SCPNT co-founder, Jim Spilker, who passed away on September 24, 2019.
