User needs and requirements

GSA is leading the User Consultation Platform (UCP), a systematic consultation process with the community of users of position, navigation, and time services and technologies in order to know their needs so that they can be taken into account by the European GNSS EGNOS and Galileo. 

The last UCP was held online on 1-2 December 2020; users from 12 different market segments met to discuss their needs for applications relying on Location, Navigation, Timing, Earth Observation, and Secure Telecommunications. Presentations from the last edition can be found here. The results of the UCP are used to compile and update a series of Reports on User Needs and Requirements per market segment presented below.
