Civil Liability for Damage Caused by Global Navigation Satellite System aims to explore whether current international law is adequate to deal with the issue of civil liability in the context of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). It has come to pass that national security, economic growth, and transportation safety – not to mention such infrastructure as banking and electricity – are severely dependent on the positioning information, navigation capabilities, and time dissemination provided by GNSS. However, GNSS is not risk-free. The more humanity depends on GNSS, the more risks it has to face. It is irresponsible to wait for an accident to happen merely to justify the need for an appropriate GNSS civil liability regime. This hugely important book examines the structure of such a regime in unprecedented depth and proposes a uniform governance structure composed of an institutional framework and a legal system for GNSS, with safety-of-life signals at its core.
What’s in this book:
The author confronts and responds to crucial issues of civil liability in the context of GNSS as the following:
How this will help you:
In its committed urging of GNSS signal providers to improve the stability of the satellite navigation systems and its insightful recommendations on how to promote public safety, this book will gain the attention of international organisations such as ICAO, IMO, ICG, COPUOS, and UNIDROIT for their further moves on the issue of GNSS civil liability. This book offers a feasible roadmap indicating a truly viable international regime of GNSS civil liability. Relevant international organisations and States, as well as practitioners, are sure to respond positively to its unique and important analysis.
