To enable the adoption of Galileo and EGNOS-powered services across all market segments, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) has launched a new R&D funding mechanism supporting the development of chipsets and receivers. This ‘Fundamental Elements’ programme supports activities to be carried out from 2015-2020 for a projected budget of EUR 100 million.
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) is pleased to announce that after extensive ground and space testing, SES-5 GEO satellite has now entered into European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) operational platform broadcasting EGNOS Signal-In-Space (SIS).
Following a successful audit this month, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) has been ISO 9001 certified for all its activities. ISO 9001 is an internationally recognised certification of an organisation’s quality management system standards.
The 2014 edition of the European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC) European GNSS Agency (GSA) Special Prize was awarded to Deimos Space for their Galileo for Ara - Design of a new Galileo Module for Ara platform project.
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) and the European Commission have concluded an agreement which delegates a range of exploitation tasks for Galileo to the GSA, providing a framework and budget for the development of services and operations through 2021.
The Early Proof of Concept (EPOC) team has successfully tracked the encrypted Galileo E6-B and E6-C signals broadcast by Galileo satellites. As a result, the Commercial Service loop has been closed using both encrypted and non-encrypted signals.
Tests conducted by Rx Networks and the European GNSS Agency (GSA) confirm that, when used in addition to GPS and/or GLONASS, Galileo significantly improves the accuracy of location-based services when used in challenging environments.
