The new version of the Service Definition Document (SDD) for the EGNOS Data Access Service (EDAS) has been just released. In this latest version, the SDD has been updated to reflect the service’s latest changes, including the inclusion of Iceland as an EGNOS participant member. Additionally, the SDD captures the GSA’s transition to the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) and provides up-to-date information on the EDAS performances.
10 years of EDAS
EDAS is one of three services provided by the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS). It is aimed at users who require access to specific GNSS data streams for the provision of added-value services, professional applications, commercial products, R&D and more.
EDAS provides ground-based access to EGNOS data, through a collection of services, which are accessible to registered users through the Internet and are oriented to users in different domains of application such as Location Based Services (LBS), a broad range of services in professional GNSS markets, Assisted-GNSS (A-GNSS) concepts, and related R&D activities.
2022 marks 10 years since EDAS’s service declaration in 2012.Throughout this decade of data provision, the collection of services has grown and evolved, and have oriented towards different domain applications.
EDAS has facilitated many success stories since its inception, such as the retransmission of differential global positioning system (DGPS) corrections in the maritime sector based on the EDAS (IALA beacons) and supporting surveying and mapping activities in Agriculture.
You can access the new SDD version either online or download it in PDF format. For any questions about EDAS or the new SDD, you can contact the EGNOS Helpdesk.
