Final Report - AFSAGA (African satellite communication and Galileo applications)

Project ID: 30933
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the final activity report of the 'African satellite communication and Galileo application' (Afsaga) project. Funded under the European's Community's Sixth Framework Programme, Afsaga aimed first to raise awareness of the opportunities offered by the use of satellite communications and in particular, Galileo applications.

This report provides first information about the workshops with regional key stakeholders which were organised during the course of the project. It goes on to summarise a combination of navigation and telecommunications applications from which the Southern African development community would benefit.

At the heart of this report is a short description of the regional action plan which was proposed to remove the numerous barriers to the implementation of combined navigation and telecommunications applications. A brief overview of business and cooperation opportunities which have arisen between Europe and Southern Africa that concludes the report.
