042 - Next Generation Motion Sensors for Hybrid GNSS INS Solutions in high accuracy machine control applications

Robotics, machine control, industry automation require high accuracy positioning, as well as very robust PNT to support autonomous operations. Relative motion sensors (e.g. IMU) are key to complement GNSS in case of outage or for enhanced robustness and sustained high accuracy. In open sky, the state-of-the-art of GNSS and IMU provide good performance. However, cost-efficient IMUs still face…

040 - Next Generation network-assisted PNT assurance

PNT assurance against malicious threats like spoofing relies on four main enablers: - authenticity of the information relating to the nodes used for computing the position (e.g. clock and ephemeris data of GNSS satellites). It can be built and distributed in a network-assisted configuration, for instance by monitoring the PNT system or accessing directly the original information; -…

039 - Earth Moon GNSS Spaceborne Receiver for In-Orbit-Demonstration

Current GEO and GTO missions already exploit GNSS signals for in-orbit PNT. NASA’s MMS mission has recently demonstrated that tracking of GPS signals is possible up to 150,000 km from Earth surface (half-way the distance to the Moon).  The feasibility of extending the use of GNSS for missions to the Moon has also preliminarily been assessed by ESA via GSP. These preliminary studies have…

Open Call for Proposals

Submit a 6 pages Outline Proposal Under NAVISP Element 2, the permanent Open Call for Proposals focusses on the development of innovative competitive products in the Satellite Navigation and wider Position, Navigation and Timing domain. The objective is to boost Member States industrial competitiveness in the fast- evolving navigation sector. Proposals are welcome from space and…

Support for Institutional Projects

Focused on participating States’ priorities, the action  aims at supporting their national navigation activities along the whole value chain. Element 3 configures as an ad-hoc support element, which is envisaged per country and possibly per domain, for the development and promotion of products, applications and services based on GNSS and more widely on PNT systems. Following participating…

070 - Advanced MEOSAR Test Beacon Setup

The location methods used in the MEOSAR systems are sensitive to beacon motion. A lot of work has been undertaken during the past years to elaborate test means in order to evaluate the MEOSAR location performance with moving beacons (use of vehicles, drones, turn-style mechanism, beacons of opportunity). The test means used have several drawbacks: limited test time, limited speed range,…

069 - Enabling high performance PNT in lunar environment

In the context of the renewed interest in lunar exploration, the need for preparing the future user instrument for the new positioning service on the Moon has become very important, in particular for supplementing the current navigation techniques based on inertial sensors and cameras. A significant R&D effort is ongoing towards the development of dedicated lunar infrastructures for enhanced Moon…

068 - Biosensor and PNT Integration: What is feasible?

Biosensors (pioneered by C. Clark, inventor of Clark Oxygen Electrode for blood), are sensors that integrate a biological element with a physiochemical transducer to produce an electronic signal proportional to a single analyte which is then conveyed to a detector. A wide field of applications exists: clinical (in vivo, in vitro) and non-clinical. Typical application fields are food-analyses…

067 - Precision Agriculture - High precision coordinate and alignments transfer

In future precision agriculture, it is expected that each plant (e.g. corn) will get coordinates with very high accuracy. The type of plants and their coordinates will be stored in a database with additional agricultural information. Therefore, already during the sowing process each finger of the seeder comb/seed drill has to be coordinated with high accuracy in the relevant navigation reference…

066 - Deeply Coupled GNSS Vector tracking loop robust solution for autonomous vehicles

In conventional GNSS receivers (Scalar Tracking Loop – STL), tracking is performed in several independent tracking loops that provide measurements (pseudoranges, pseudorange rates, carrier doppler) to a navigation algorithm (e.g. kalman filter) in charge of the PVT solution.  In Vector Tracking Loops (VTL), the two tasks of signal tracking and PVT estimations are combined. This allows the…
