GNSS Pioneer Javad Ashjaee Dies from Coronavirus

It is with great sadness that we report to you today that Dr. Javad Ashjaee has passed away due to COVID-19 Coronavirus.  As Mark Cheves, PS of American Surveyor states, "The surveying community owes a debt of gratitude to Javad. He could have turned his brilliance toward anything electronic, but instead he chose to focus on the precise use of GNSS. At a time when the rest of the industry was dissing GLONASS, he tirelessly worked with Russian colleagues to make its use a reality. He went on to innovate many features that are now common-place."
