A recent cost benefit analysis shows the positive impact satellite technologies can have on the rail sector.
The challenge of bringing the benefits created by space technologies, such as GNSS, firmly onto the user market is a major focus of the European GNSS Agency (GSA). The topic was also the subject of a session during the Munich Satellite Navigation Summit, where the GSA joined representatives of industry, think-tanks and policy to discuss the potential opportunities ahead.
Many GNSS applications call for extremely high accuracy – down to the centimetre level. These include surveying, precision farming and machine control. The GSA discussed current and future issues surrounding Precise Point Positioning at the Munich Satellite Navigation Summit.
