Pražské sídlo Agentury pro evropský globální družicový navigační systém (GSA) se ve dnech 8. – 9. prosince 2017 již potřetí otevírá pro veřejnost. Bude to první Den otevřených dveří od okamžiku, kdy GSA letos převzala provozní řízení evropského systému Galileo poskytujícího globální družicové navigační služby. Široké veřejnosti se tak nabízí jedinečná příležitost nahlédnout do centra Evropských globálních družicových navigačních systémů (EGNSS) a seznámit se s lidmi, kteří je řídí.

In the Road segment, European GNSS, including Galileo and EGNOS, significantly reduces congestion and, consequently, CO2 pollution. It also improves the efficiency of road transportation by providing navigation guidance, fleet management and traffic monitoring. According to the 5th edition of the GSA’s popular GNSS Market Report, the continued evolution of the autonomous vehicle represents a huge opportunity for European GNSS. Together with other technologies, GNSS serves as the answer to these vehicles’ need for accurate positioning and reliable localisation.

As an efficient tool for mapping and surveying, GNSS is widely used by organisations such as utility companies and regional and local authorities, most often being employed by services requiring centimetre-level accuracy. As highlighted in the 5th edition of the GSA’s popular GNSS Market Report, GNSS’ market penetration of the Mapping and Surveying segment has grown with the launch of Galileo Initial Services, which provides high-precision users positioning services with sub-decimetre level accuracy.

According to the 5th edition of the GSA’s popular GNSS Market Report, the uptake of GNSS-enabled precision agriculture will continue to grow. This is due to the many benefits precision agriculture provides farmers, including increased productivity, reliability and cost-effectiveness. The Market Report also identifies a trend towards integrating GNSS into other technologies in order to further enhance farm management.

In the Maritime segment, GNSS is used to satisfy vessel and crew demand for navigation (in open sea or in specific situations, such as harbour entrances and approaches) and positioning (including, among others, vessel monitoring, traffic management, locator beacons for distress situations, etc.). According to the 5th edition of the GSA’s popular GNSS Market Report, growth in this segment will be primarily driven by navigation- based applications for recreational vessels and providing location information to Search and Rescue (SAR) beacons.
