Topic(s):GALILEO-3-2014 - Releasing the potential of EGNSS applications through international cooperation
Call for proposal:H2020-Galileo-2014-1See other projects for this call
Funding scheme:IA - Innovation action
MAGNIFIC project aims to enable the development of EGNSS applications through international cooperation. MAGNIFIC proposes to demonstrate to African Stakeholders the benefits of EGNOS and Galileo in 6 market sectors: airport surface vehicle, flight trials, Oil exploitation, Natural resources, highly secured multi-modal transport and use of secured Maritime transport. These applications have been selected based on the 6 priority applications identified in the GSA Action plan on GNSS applications
The selection of Africa was done taking into account that the provision of SBAS over AFI has been considered by EU since the early phase of development of EGNOS. Particularly, countries from West Africa have been selected being those countries the ones with the highest growth foreseen for the next 5 years.
Certainly, one of the key aspects of the proposed solution is the possibility of the consortium of simulating EGNOS signal thanks to Thales Alenia Space SPEED platform.
Other key aspects from our solution to be highlighted are:
• Full range of partners allowing networking among European SMEs, European Industry European Research Centres, African academia, African Air Navigation Stakeholders, African SMEs and African petrol companies
• High innovation character, attracting the most important regional companies from Africa, who have committed officially to an active and in-kind participation in the project, multiplying the impact of MAGNIFIC.
• Galileo SAR demonstrations and Oil exploitation demonstrations showing the added value of GALILEO early services.
MAGNIFIC project will allow fostering application development through international cooperation, awareness of EGNOS and GALILEO applications outside Europe and ensuring networking among different kind of actors from Europe and Africa.
