Horizon 2020: new funding opportunities for European GNSS Applications
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) recently held a workshop on funding opportunities for European GNSS Applications in Horizon 2020.
Local Integrity: Characterization of GNSS Degradations in Urban Scenarios
Safety-critical and liability-critical GNSS-based applications are needed to enable Intelligent Transport Systems and smart mobility. This requires trusted GNSS signals that are authenticated and of appropriate integrity. Assessing GNSS signal integrity in complex urban environments is not easy, but the GLOVE FP7 project has successfully demonstrated one possible approach that uses inter-vehicle communication to collate information on GNSS signal quality from a number of vehicles for assessing the local integrity.
EGNOS makes splash at world's largest marine trade show
The 2014 Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) drew thousands of participants and speakers, and a plethora of exhibitors, including the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and EGNOS, Europe’s Satellite-Based Augmentation System.
E-GNSS for European Rail Networks
The modernisation, integration and expansion of rail networks in the European Union is opening exciting new possibilities for Europe’s global navigation satellite systems (E-GNSS), Galileo and EGNOS – the topic of a recent seminar presented at by the European GNSS Agency (GSA).
GSA Earns ISO 9001 Certification
Following a successful audit this month, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) has achieved ISO 9001 Certification for all activities.
Groningen Airport Eelde First for LPV in the Netherlands
The Groningen Airport Eelde (GAE) is pioneering satellite-based landing procedures in the Netherlands with the publication of two LPV (Localiser Performance with Vertical Guidance) procedures. These new, EGNOS-enabled procedures improve accuracy and safety when aircraft land in a cost effective way. This development was supported by the European GNSS Agency (GSA) funded FP7 project ACCEPTA that is working to implement LPV procedures across Europe.
GSA Joins International Association of Maritime Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) has become a member of the International Association of Maritime Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA), where it aims to strengthen dialogue with the maritime sector and survey and respond to segment-specific requirements and needs.
