Description of Topic GALILEO.2008.1.8.1, SAR Service: SAR/Galileo Service Early Demonstration

Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT

Abstract

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 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 SAR service. The objective is to support the integration of the Galileo search and rescue infrastructure into the international Cospas-Sarsat initiative.
We expect to fund a single project of a size that is large enough to cover the objectives. Note that the funding scheme, Collaborative Project, applies.
