European GNSS, and specifically EGNOS, contributes substantially to the maritime sector. All passenger ships and cargo ships larger than 500 gross tonnage are regulated and rely heavily on GNSS for navigation. What's more, GNSS systems for maritime navigation are widespread across commercial and recreational vessels, both overseas and in high traffic areas. GNSS is also used to ensure safe navigation in inland waterways (rivers, canals, lakes and estuaries).
