New Galileo-inspired opportunities for Critical Infrastructures management presented at ITSF 2020

10 November 2020
The European GNSS Agency joined the global timing and sync community at the International Timing and Sync Forum (ITSF) 2020 to share Galileo-based applications for Critical Infrastructures.
With only 0,7% of the overall GNSS market, the Critical Infrastructures (CI) segment, is driven by its strategic importance rather than its size.

A message from Carlo des Dorides, GSA Executive Director

20 December 2019
This has been a year of tremendous growth for the GSA, Galileo, EGNOS and the European Space Programme as a whole. We hit the ground running in 2019, buoyed by a wave of optimism following the successful European Space Week, held in in Marseille last December.

GIANO – robust GNSS for critical infrastructure

16 December 2019
Thales Alenia Space has been awarded a grant under the European GNSS Agency’s (GSA) Fundamental Elements funding mechanism for the development of the GIANO (Galileo-based TIming Receiver for CriticAl INfrastructure Robustness) receiver, which aims to make critical infrastructure more robust against interference, jamming and spoofing.

Orolia selected for Galileo resilient time receiver initiative

09 July 2019
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) has awarded a grant of up to €1.7 million to resilient positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) solution provider Orolia to develop a resilient time and frequency receiver to protect critical GNSS-reliant systems. The Galileo Authenticated Robust Timing System (GEARS) project will provide accurate and highly robust Galileo-based time and frequency data for critical infrastructure. The project should deliver its robust Galileo timing solution by 2021.
The GEARS project will provide accurate and highly robust Galileo-based time and frequency data for critical infrastructure

MyGalileoApp rocks the app development world

24 April 2019
The European GNSS Agency’s (GSA) MyGalileoApp competition has sparked significant interest among the app development community, with the high number of entries in the competition underlining the value that app developers place on Galileo’s precise positioning. The GSA has now selected the 30 most innovative projects to advance to the next phase of the competition.
The GSA has selected 30 teams to advance to the development phase of the competition.

GSA funding opportunity: Multi-frequency multipurpose antenna for Galileo

22 October 2018
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) has opened a call for proposals within its Fundamental Elements funding mechanism to develop a Galileo-enabled multi-frequency antenna. The activity shall also focus on developing a close-to-market GNSS antenna for both mass-market and professional users. The deadline for submissions is 08 March 2019.
The call targets the development of multi-frequency, multi-purpose antennas aimed at both the mass and professional markets

GSA announces new funding opportunity for development of Galileo-based timing receiver

21 December 2017
Within the Fundamental Elements funding scheme, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) has opened a call for proposals targeting the development of a Galileo-based timing receiver for critical infrastructures. The deadline for the submission of proposals is 28 March 2018.

Time is of the essence

05 October 2017
To identify timing service needs that are not yet being met by the EGNSS basic time service, the ‘DEMonstrator of EGNSS services based on Time Reference Architecture’ (DEMETRA) project developed a prototype of an EGNSS-based time disseminator that provides time certification, redundancy, resilience, integrity, and improved accuracy, while validating the concept of ‘time as a service’.
