EGNOS_covering_Europe-O

Europe’s EGNOS augmentation system sharpens the accuracy and reliability of GPS signals so they can safely be used for landing approaches across a growing number of European airports. But aviation is a global enterprise — so the aim is to develop a seamless network of augmentation systems in future. That is the task of an international group of experts, the... read more

Testing of Luch-5V Begins Using PRN 140

August 4, 2014By

The L-band SBAS transponder on the third Luch Multifunctional Space Relay System geostationary satellite, Luch-5V (“v” is the third letter of the Russian alphabet), launched on April 28, has started test transmissions using PRN code 140. The satellite is positioned at 95° east longitude and completes the Russian three-satellite SBAS constelltion for the System for Differential Corrections and Monitoring. Stations... read more

Occupy Media Space Now EGNOS and Galileo Mission

June 29, 2014By

By Peter de Selding The message to the recent European Space Solutions conference in Prague was simple enough: EGNOS is here, so let’s use it; Galileo is almost here, so let’s promote it. Neither task is straightforward. Take the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS), the European piece of a near-global network of terminals on geostationary satellites linked to networks... read more

SBAS Working Group Looks to Galileo for Aircraft Guidance, Defines L5

February 28, 2014By
Planned GAGAN service coverage for the two different service levels (RNP0.1 and APV1). GAGAN has been jointly undertaken by the Airport Authority of India and the Indian Space Research Organization, ISRO, to achieve smooth transition to satellite-based navigation and seamless air traffic management across continents. GAGAN is designed to provide improved accuracy, availability and integrity necessary to enable users to rely on GPS for all phases of flight, from en route through approach for all qualified airports within the GAGAN service volume. More precisely it is aimed to provide Non Precision Approach RNP0.1 service levels to the entire Indian Flight Information Region and Precision Approach APV1 service (equivalent to the current EGNOS Service) within a specified service volume within Indian land mass.

Plans to harness Galileo and other satnav systems for next-generation satellite augmentation systems for aviation and other high-performance uses took a significant step forward at the latest gathering of worldwide operators and experts, reports the European Space Agency. Satellite augmentation systems combine additional ground stations and satellite transponders to sharpen satnav accuracy and reliability across given geographical regions — based... read more
