GSA talks Galileo at INTERGEO
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) recently participated in the INTERGEO conference and trade fair, taking place in Berlin from 7 – 9 October. This leading event for geodesy, geo-information and land management once again demonstrated the vibrancy and importance of this sector, where satellite-based positioning technologies play a key enabling role.
European Rail, Supported by European GNSS
As European satellites offer a possibility to improve the efficiency of train control systems, GNSS technology is starting to gain momentum in the rail sector. To promote the role of GNSS in this important sector, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) recently exhibited at Innotrans – a leading rail transport tradeshow.
Galileo Service Provision Delegated to the European GNSS Agency
The signing of the Galileo Exploitation Delegation Agreement between the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and the European Commission serves as an initial step towards the full Galileo Exploitation Phase.
UN World Space Week Highlights the Benefits of Satellite Navigation
In its 15th edition, this year’s United Nations (UN) Space Week is highlighting the many benefits of satellite navigation to humankind. With its theme “Space: Guiding Your Way”, World Space Week in 2014 is focusing on the value of such Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) as EGNOS and Galileo.
The GSMC: An integral part of the Galileo infrastructure
Together with market development and security accreditation, the operation of the Galileo Security Monitoring Centre (GSMC) is one of the core activities entrusted to the GSA in its Founding Regulation. In particular, the GSMC fulfils a key role in ensuring the security of the Galileo system.
GNSS Service Centre Moving Towards Full Operational Capability
The European GNSS Service Centre (GSC) is preparing to be the essential interface between global users and Galileo’s Full Operational Capability (FOC). A recent kick-off meeting in Madrid initiated a range of projects that will create the necessary facilities and operations for providing this vital interface.
Gothenburg City Airport pioneers LPV approach in Sweden
Gothenburg City airport is leading the way in Sweden for satellite-based landing procedures enabled by Europe’s EGNOS system – improving accuracy and safety when aircraft land in a very cost effective way.
GNSS Service Centre Continues to Grow
The GNSS Service Centre (GSC), based within Madrid’s National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA), is an integral part of the European GNSS infrastructure. Inaugurated in 2013, it is responsible for providing the single interface between the Galileo system and the users of the Galileo Open Service (OS) and the Galileo Commercial Service (CS).
GSA and Eurocontrol Announce Cooperation Agreement
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Eurocontrol plan to leverage synergies to enhance aviation safety, improve air traffic management and better the aviation user experience.
Promoting Galileo in South East Asia
Based in Hanoi, Vietnam the International Centre for R&D of Satellite Navigation Technology in South East Asia (NAVIS) is on a mission to give satellite navigation technology – particularly Galileo – a boost in the region. To learn more, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) recently caught up with Navis Director Dr. Ta Hai Tung.
