On November 24, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) hosted its 3rd Annual Workshop with Receiver Manufacturers at its headquarters in Prague, where discussions focused on the adoption of Galileo in chipsets and receivers.
Mistrale, a project to develop a soil moisture monitoring drone funded by the GSA under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, is changing the way European farmers decide on where, when and how much to irrigate.
Mark your calendar for the fourth edition of the European Space Solutions conference, 30 May – 3 June 2016 in The Hague, The Netherlands.
The European Commission has published a new release 1.2 of the Galileo Open Service Signal In Space Interface Control Document (OS SIS ICD v1.2). The document provides the information needed by receiver and chipset manufacturers, application developers and service providers to process and make use of the open signals generated by the Galileo satellites.
In global terms, the road sector is one of the largest and most dynamic consumer markets, representing a major business opportunity for GNSS technology applications. With a projected 2023 worldwide market for road-vehicle GNSS receivers now estimated at 620 million, the future for EGNOS and GALILEO-related road applications looks promising.
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Galileo Services (GS) recently met to confirm their continued commitment to ensuring the success of both European GNSS programmes and industry.
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) attended Agritechnica – the world’s largest trade fair for agricultural machinery and equipment – in Hanover, Germany to discuss and promote the important role that European GNSS plays in precision farming.
The European GNSS Agency together with ESSP demonstrates the improved accuracy of EGNOS at the annual ESRI user’s conference in Spain.
To highlight the essential role GNSS plays in the developing area of the Internet of Things, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) recently participated in four global events on the topic.
Maritime use of GNSS goes far beyond navigation at sea to include applications for search and rescue, inland waterways, environmental protection and sailing.
The maritime industry was quick to adopt satellite navigation, and an estimated 87% of merchant shipping already uses global satellite systems for navigation and positioning. About 90% of world trade is carried by sea, and shipping accounts for around 40% of trade between EU-28 countries.
