EGNOS’ annual workshop captures state-of-play and state-of-the-art

31 October 2017
The EGNOS Annual Workshop is an opportunity to catch up on the latest state-of-play and state-of-the-art in Europe’s satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS). Another year and again goals have been met, there are more and more users and EGNOS continues to forge forward in accuracy and reliability.

Last chance to start your Space3ac adventure and apply for financial support

30 October 2017
The latest recruitment drive for Space3ac, a three-month acceleration programme for start-ups using satellite technologies to create solutions for the intermodal transportation, oil and gas and insurance sectors, is set to end at midnight on Tuesday, 31 October. Interested start-ups with capabilities to solve problems provided by industry partners should “raise their hands” and register (by filling out a short form) on the programme’s website. The recruitment process will continue with interviews and meetings on 20-21 November.

GNSS raw measurements set to be a game changer

25 October 2017
Are GNSS raw measurements in consumer devices just a playground for scientists, or do they represent a real market opportunity? This was the question posed by the GSA’s Raw Measurements Task Force at a panel discussion on the topic held 28 September at ION GNSS+ in Portland, Oregon (USA).

GNSS at the centre of a revolution in agriculture

24 October 2017
The agriculture sector has gone through a series of evolutionary milestones, from mechanisation, through the green revolution, to precision farming. The current revolution in the agriculture sector is digital farming, in which information about weather, soil conditions and crop health is combined with network technology to allow farmers to optimise their systems and improve their productivity. In Europe, EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) is a key enabling technology underpinning this revolution.

Time is of the essence

05 October 2017
To identify timing service needs that are not yet being met by the EGNSS basic time service, the ‘DEMonstrator of EGNSS services based on Time Reference Architecture’ (DEMETRA) project developed a prototype of an EGNSS-based time disseminator that provides time certification, redundancy, resilience, integrity, and improved accuracy, while validating the concept of ‘time as a service’.
This figure shows the improvement of the location service in terms of accuracy and availability that ELAASTIC technology provides in difficult environments, here in downtown Toulouse, reaching a reliable 1.5-meter accuracy.

Expanding GNSS performance with assistance data

27 September 2017
ELAASTIC technology increases a device’s position accuracy and availability, opening the door to a number of user applications requiring a high-level of performance.
Join the GSA at ION GNSS+ 2017 for a special session on using GNSS raw measurements. The session will take place on Thursday September 28 from 2:00 – 2:45pm in Room C120-122.
