Closed Opportunities

Cooperative Navigation and Cloud Processing

The current evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Cities, together with the proliferation in the last years of cloud platforms where storage and processing of data can, ideally, be handled on demand, has boosted the appearance of new applications and services in the positioning domain of potential interest for specific use cases. In particular, the processing in the cloud of GNSS…

Pulsar Timescale Demonstration

The objective of this activity is to demonstrate the effectiveness of Pulsar Timescale for the generation and monitoring of Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) time. For the latter, the capabilities of the Galileo Processing Centre at ESA/ESTEC in terms of access to Galileo Experimental Sensor Stations and data processing capabilities will be…

Multipath & Interference Error Mitigation Techniques for Future Maritime e-NAV Services

The study, characterisation, modelling and mitigation of multipath and interference in maritime environments for different operational scenarios are considered of paramount importance. The objectives of this activity are to characterise the multipath and interference errors experienced by marine PNT receivers, in particular GNSS, and to derive suitable error models for maritime space-based PNT…

Multi-System Multi-Sensor Maritime PNT Test Equipment

The activity "Multi-System Multi-Sensor Maritime PNT Test Equipment" will tackle the study of methods and techniques for the combined use of multiple systems and sensors inmaritime PNT receivers to characterise achievable classes of performance. At the same time is will also require the implementation of an experimental platform for testing and benchmarking the combination of methods and…

System Suitability Study for Train Positioning Using GNSS in ERTMS in 2020

The objective of this activity is to study the suitability of the current generation of SBAS for use in an evolution of the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) using GNSS for virtual balise detection. This activity focuses on the current generation of the European SBAS, EGNOS v2 (GPS L1 only) and includes the following aspects: Review and consolidate requirements and…

Complementary PNT Infrastructure in LEO

GNSS is the only global, free, comprehensive technology providing absolute PNT data to users worldwide. Its limitations are known, including long life cycle and replenishment schedule, affecting their ability to adapt easily to short term market needs and to some extent, resilience. Considering the above, alternative PNT methods and solutions have been developed, innovative PNT systems are…
