EGNOS Adoption in the Aviation Sector

Objective

The GIANT-2 Project intends to accelerate the adoption of EGNOS in the aviation sector, specifically in the Regional, Corporate and General Aviation, as well as the Helicopter SAR areas, focusing on the Topic’s primary objective.
The previous GIANT project has successfully promoted and trialled the introduction of EGNOS applications in the area of Regional Aviation, Helicopter HEMS (Medical) operations and North Sea Oil Rigs operations. In fact, within this project, the EGNOS enabled LPV approaches were flown, for the first time in Europe, by aircraft of a commercial airline, Air Nostrum (not experimental, nor test aircraft).
The GIANT-2 project will constitute an step forward by promoting and accelerating the EGNOS aviation applications in the other key niche markets interested in the EGNOS use, i.e. the areas of Corporate and General Aviation, School and Training Aviation and Helicopter SAR (Search and Rescue) operations. These activities will constitute specific Work Packages in the GIANT-2 project, namely WP 3, 4 and 5, respectively.
Special effort will be devoted to the topic’s secondary objective in order to identify testing and operational practices that will lead to a successful EGNOS adoption, knowledge building and dissemination to a Europe-wide network of aviation community members with strong interest in GNSS technology, focusing on showing economic and operational benefits to end users. Specific Work Packages will be devoted to this objective, namely WP 1, 2, 6, 7 and 8.
End users are the main community and decision makers in order to introduce and adopt the usage of the EGNOS system and service in all markets. In aviation, airlines, helicopter operators, aircraft owners and pilots constitute the end users community, and they are key partners of the project.
