Objectives: 

MAGNIFIC project has the following main objectives:

  • To ensure the promotion of an African EGNOS through benefits that spread much beyond Civil Aviation Needs
  • To ensure the promotion of the Galileo Early services
  • To support the Awareness and the capacity building in Africa to boost the penetration of the EGNSS applications and services

MAGNIFIC will allow African Stakeholders to go faster in the added value services deployment in the geolocalization domain and the deployment of solutions needed by the authorities. MAGNIFIC will also allow to create self-sustainable partnership at research and businesses level between African and European entities. The project will allow GNSS EU Industries to anticipate the African needs, and together with African self-sustainable partners, adapt solutions to these needs, and to ease the access to the African market.
