Navigation or, more specifically, Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC), deals with the systems controlling the movement of vehicles (automobiles, ships, aircraft, spacecrafts). The communication between control systems and vehicles is susceptible to interferences caused by natural physical phenomena, mainly induced by cosmic radiations. Therefore, it is necessary to globally monitor and potentially compensate these influences in order to reduce or eliminate communication discontinuities.

One such monitoring system was addressed in the frame of the¬†“Monitor 2: Ionospheric Monitoring Network”¬†project.
