Consisting of three geostationary satellites and a network of ground stations, EGNOS
achieves its aim by transmitting a signal containing information to increase the reliability and accuracy of the positioning signals sent out by GPS and GLONASS satellites.
The award to provide hosted payload services onboard ASTRA 5B follows a first agreement with the European Commission for EGNOS
hosted payload services onboard SES ASTRA's SIRIUS 5 satellite.
is composed of about 40 ranging and integrity monitoring stations (RIMS), mainly located in EU territories and neighbouring countries.
The mountainous terrain in southwest France where we flew repeated approaches is a perfect example of how the new features in EASy II, like synthetic vision, when combined with improved navigation tools like EGNOS
, drastically enhance a pilot's situational awareness and safety margins.
Safety-of-Life service can provide the following advantages:
2) support in the operation and maintenance of the existing generation of the EGNOS
system, including end-to-end system design engineering activities.
Disclaimer: the description of the nature and scope of the EGNOS
geostationary satellite payload ~GEO-3~ procurement given below is only indicative, aimed at outlining the concept in broad terms.
Telespazio plays a leading role in the reference markets harnessing technological experience acquired over the years and through its participation in major European space programs such as: GALILEO, EGNOS
, GMES and COSMO-SkyMed.
Contract notice: Define and study an EGNSS regional service focused on Galileo open service and commercial service, with special emphasis on Galileo-only users, also taking into account possible synergies with EGNOS
ProMark3 provides sub-meter, real-time accuracy using WAAS or EGNOS
, centimeter-level accuracy in post-processing, and keeps working even in urban canyons and dense foliage using optimized multi-path mitigation.
The objective of the pilot project is to prepare for the introduction of effective emergency caller location from a GNSS-enabled phone to the 112 number, building on GNSS advantages and more specifically, on EGNOS
and Galileo for improved accuracy and robustness.
They have also proved to be a reliable supplier of mission-critical, software-intensive systems on EGNOS
, ESA's precursor to Galileo.
WAAS, the European EGNOS
, Japanese MSAS, Chinese SNAS, and more recently the Gagan system in India.
Ultimately, the deployment of EGNOS
across an area of 16 million square kilometres will support this growth while improving the security and efficiency of air traffic, but also by increasing satellite positioning performance for many applications such as aviation, but also the main transport sectors.
Thanks to advances in hardware and software achieved with the 16-channel ANTARIS 4 receiver technology, ANTARIS 4 chipsets, a joint development of Atmel and u-blox, allow for 40% smaller modules, USB connectivity, full support of WAAS and EGNOS
satellites and unparalleled low power consumption.
