Description of Topic GALILEO.2008.1.4.1 (a), Use of EGNOS for Safety-of-Life Applications: Accelerating EGNOS, Adoption in Aviation

Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT


The objectives for the 2nd call, of the activity "exploiting the full potential", part of the sub-theme:
Support to the European Global Navigation Satellite System (Galileo), are:
[1] Stimulate adoption of EGNOS and EDAS;
[2] Prepare markets for Galileo introduction;
[3] Stimulate EU GNSS industry competitiveness.
The 1st call within for this activity focused on several application areas with a high potential. In this 2nd call the scope is wider and covers a more diverse range of applications. The approach taken is broadly similar. However, the requirements have been updated.
This specific topic focuses on the adoption of EGNOS in aviation. As such it is mainly focussed on the first objective.
The European Geostationary Navigation Overlay System (EGNOS) is the first European venture in operational satellite navigation. EGNOS is therefore a major element of the European GNSS strategy and a technological precursor to Galileo.
