EGNSS: Actions for Road Transport, Multimodal Logistics and Dangerous Goods
European Global Navigation Satellite Systems (EGNSS) such as EGNOS and Galileo can provide the flexible, low cost solutions that are needed by the transport sector. A recent workshop organized by the European Commission with the support of the European GNSS Agency (GSA) highlighted the benefits and added value offered by EGNSS in applications from road tolling to logistics and a potential key role in the proposed new digital tachograph.
GSA supports Geospatial Strategies
The Middle East is witnessing tremendous advances in the field of geospatial technologies with countries across the region developing their own geospatial infrastructures and strategies. At the recent Middle East Geospatial Forum in Dubai the European GNSS Agency (GSA) showed how Galileo and EGNOS are able to contribute to developments in the region.
Analysing the Ionosphere for Improved Accuracy
GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) signals are sensitive to disturbances from the ionosphere, which can impact applications requiring high accuracy. Brazil is located in one of the most affected regions of the Earth and, therefore, is an excellent place for developing and testing solutions to this important issue.
Boost for EU-India Cooperation
The GNSS.asia project is making a big impact in India, bringing together high level decision-makers, key industrial players and academics with representatives from European companies and institutions to discuss opportunities for industrial cooperation on Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) applications.
Looking at GNSS R&D Success Stories
With the first Horizon 2020 Call for Applications in Satellite Navigation in full-swing, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) takes stock of FP7’s successes.
What Direction for Europe in Space between Now and 2020?
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) joins President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso, Vice President Antonio Tajani and the European space community to discuss the future of space policy in Europe.
The Case for Space
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) and members of the European space community discuss the Prospective State-of-Play of EU space programmes at the Sixth Conference on EU Space Policy.
Last Chance to Register for Farming by Satellite Prize, an initiative of the European GNSS Agency.
To encourage more people to participate, organisers have extended the deadline to register for the €13,000 Farming by Satellite Prize to 28 February 2014.
EGNOS Approach Procedures Available in Three More Countries
The Czech Republic, Finland and Austria join a growing list of pioneering countries offering operational EGNOS approach procedures.
