The User Consultation Platform (UCP) is a forum for interaction between users of position, navigation and time solutions and the organizations and institutions dealing, directly and indirectly, with Galileo and EGNOS. The participants are actual users of the systems, representatives of user associations (such as standardisation bodies and industry groups), regulatory bodies, and members of the value chain such as receiver and chipset manufacturers and application developers who, with their developments, influence the technologies used in the solutions.
The main work of the UCP are carried out in eight parallel panel sessions grouping users by market segment: Mass Market, Road Transport, Aviation, Rail, Maritime, Agriculture, Surveying & Mapping, and Timing & Synchronisation.
The topics tackled by each group include user requirements on PNT solutions, inputs to enhance EGNSS services both in general and specifically in their area, providing feedback on user support, identifying specific R&D priorities by market segment. The results of the 2017 edition of the UCP are listed below.
