Incubator product to be commercialized intensively. A continuous supply will create market. South East Asia.Recommendation ‡ Certain industry with higher demands should more aggressive to support consumer needs (example: topographic maps). Allocation of grants and funds to the young researchers and graduates to cultivate new players. Equator. ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ . Collaboration and cooperation between government and Industries should be tightened. etc. Government should coordinate series of space program to compete with international markets and development which is beneficial to the Malaysia.

The needs of ongoing updates (database) on the downstream industry players. Strategic collaboration between government ² industry The needs to create awareness and understanding of GNSS usage to the public to promote market growth. Lack of funding allocations and local expertise are the main constraints to bind the industry from growing. .Conclusion Most of the local users still in doubt about the usage and important of GNSS/RS technologies even though its existence almost 20 years in Malaysia.
