Periodic Reporting for period 2 - BLUEGNSS (Promoting EGNSS Operational Adoption in BLUEMED FAB)
Reporting period: 2017-04-01 to 2018-06-30
Other objectives, linked to the primary one, are:
• Training procedure designers in order to increase capabilities for States on implementing RNP APCH;
• Disseminating EGNSS culture among BLUEMED partners;
Design and validation of RNP APCH is a fundamental enabler for the exploitation of EGNSS in the aviation domain and will push forward its adoption in Europe.
This is the first time in Europe that a RNP APCH implementation project is coordinated at FAB level. The advantage of such approach is that States that don’t have enough experience on RNP APCH operational implementation will take benefit from inter FAB knowledge transfer. Furthermore the BLUEMED PBN Task Force framework will act as catalyst platform to spread knowledge among the area and beyond at whole EU level.
WP200 Training and WP600 RNP APCH for Malta, have been successfully completed. Furthermore MATS singed also EGNOS Working Agreement with ESSP.
WP400 RNP APCH for Greece started on June 2016, the draft charts are under finalization (7 procedures) and are planned to be validated on June 2018.
WP800 GNSS Monitoring is on going and the architecture is defined, some reports have been already produced and shared with Italian National Supervisory Authority (ENAC).
