[1]Fundamental Elements projects aim to develop market-ready chipsets, receivers and antennas. The markets targeted by these end-products comprise, in varying proportions, end-users from all segments, including: Aviation, LBS, Agriculture, Surveying, Rail, Road, Maritime, Timing and Synchronisation and PRS.

Precise Timing & Synchronisation (T&S) is crucial to a range of strategic activities. Applications of GNSS T&S include but are not limited to telecommunications and computer networks, energy generation and distribution, finance or other governmental functionalities. All these applications use Critical Infrastructures (CI) with different accuracy requirements that are essential for maintaining such vital societal functions as health, safety, economic and social well‐being of people.

With the growing Galileo constellation and the declaration of Initial Services, the availability of Galileo T&S solutions is of strategic importance.
