GNSS success stories

  • Modular phones are the next future solution for users who need maximum flexibility and personalisation at minimal cost. The concept is to adapt the ARA platform to individual needs. GALILEO for ARA is a solution for demanding smartphone users looking to use one of GALILEO’s most important features – the E5 signal. The idea is to develop an E5 GALILEO receiver modules for the ARA platform. While most mass market smartphones will still be...

  • JOHAN aims to develop a system to track players real-time during field sports by the use of the EGNOS system and, in the future, Galileo. Existing tracking technologies are too expensive or not precise enough. By making use of the EGNOS system and Galileo, greater precision and reliability can be achieved. In the concept, every player will wear a...
