During the last decade, there was a shift from wireless and mobile communications technology, networks, and applications toward integration of radio with other disciplines. Integration of navigation, sensing, and services allow for entering new areas in which many requirements from individuals and organizations are satisfied.

Potential applications are manifold. Developments for realizing these new application areas will create a boost for new systems, demonstrating the potentials of this integration approach.

Communications, Navigation, Sensing and Services (CONASENSE) elucidates the fundamentals of this new approach on integrated communication, navigation, sensing, and services (Conasense). Furthermore, several applications illustrate some of the aims of Conasense. The two major areas that have been included are:

1. Quality of life
2. Intelligent Conasense architectures

Topics in the book related to 'quality of life' include visionary plans on health, security, neurophysics, and indoor and outdoor safeguarding. In all these areas, new Conasense technology and systems are essential.

Topics regarding intelligent Conasense architectures concern:

• A framework describing novelties in Conasense technology needed to realize the aimed improvements in 'quality of life.’
• Breakthroughs in full integration of space-based and terrestrial communication and navigation systems with advanced, high-resolution sensing of the local environment supplemented with geographical information at regionals, national, and international scales.
