2013 Fellow

Presented to: Prof. Terry Moore

Citation: ION Fellow


Professor Moore was the driving force behind the establishment of the GNSS Research and Applications Centre of Excellence (GRACE) at Nottingham in 2009. This is a joint venture between the East Midlands Development Agency and the University to create a center of excellence in GNSS. It forms one of Europe's leading GNSS and navigation test facilities, which is available for use by industry and other universities, and acts as an incubator for small businesses. In 2011, Prof. Moore became Director of the Nottingham Geospatial Institute. He has a sustained record of success in both funding applications and project leadership.

Prof. Moore has made many contributions to research across the fields of navigation, positioning and geodesy over the past three decades. This includes more than 200 publications, including more than 50 ION conference papers. Highlights of research he has led include novel positioning techniques based on cardinal heading aiding in buildings and on digital audio broadcasting signals; an award-winning study on the impact of INS/GNSS integration on merchant shipping; new approaches to INS/GNSS and multisensory integrated navigation; the establishment of a pioneering RTK network in the English Midlands; the advancement of precise point positioning (PPP), analysis of the impact of ionosphere scintillation on GNSS and its mitigation and new techniques for modeling the troposphere; and camera-inertial sensor integration for pedestrian dead reckoning.

Prof. Moore holds a B.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering and a Ph.D. degree in Space Geodesy from The University of Nottingham. He is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation, a former Vice President and a Member of its Council. He is a member of the European Space Agency GNSS Scientific Advisory Committee and a member of the UK Space Agency Telecoms and Navigation Committee. He is also a member of The Institute of Navigation and a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. He has acted as a Program Chair and technical organizers of several international meetings, including the European Navigation Conference (ENC) in 2000, 2006 and 2011, ION GPS 2000 and ION GNSS 2011.
