Airplane Landing Safety With EGNOS

                                                       

Since its certification for civil aviation in 2011, EGNOS the European geostationary navigation overlay service has gone from strings to strings. EGNOS is a satellite-based augmentation system that improves GNSS positioning, using three satellites and a network of more than 40 reference stations in 24 countries. providing much greater accuracy than achieved through GPS alone. […]

How EGNOS Augmenting Satellite Navigation?

                                                       

Satellite navigation has become an integral part of our lives today. an area where satellite navigation plays a major role is air traffic control. for this safety-critical domain European Space Agency, ESA, the European Commission and euro control, the European Organization for the safety of air navigation developed EGNOS, which has been in use since […]

EGNOS for Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS)

                                                       

When fast intervention means saving lives and when patients have to be evacuated from remote locations. emergency services across Europe rely on the speed and versatility of helicopters. however adverse weather conditions or other factors such as smoke offered prevent helicopters from reaching the hospital or helipad, because only non-precision approaches are available. EGNOS the […]

Egnos and Galileo for Smart Mobility

                                                       

Mobilities changing. the way people and goods move on our roads is going through its biggest transformation in decades. driven by technology, connectivity and satellite positioning. Europe’s two flagship satellite navigation programs EGNOS and Galileo are at the heart of this transformation, by making positioning more accurate, available and reliable. cars, buses, trucks and even […]

BeiDou Chinese Navigation System and it’s Uses

                                                       

At present, The BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) is the only navigation satellite system that features both navigation and communication. This dual function enables BDS to provide a wider range of services in broader scenarios. BDS has a hybrid constellation consisting of satellites operating in three kinds of orbits. Compared with other navigation satellite systems, […]

EGNOS for Drone Navigation

                                                       

Drone applications are reshaping existing business models and industry standard techniques. the growing demand for these to operate in all types of airspace requires not only a significant social acceptance but, a number of critical advancements in technology, air traffic management and regulation. trustworthy traffic management solutions relying on accurate positioning information, detect and avoid […]

EGNOS and Galileo for Rail

                                                       

The rail sector is constantly evolving, and rail operators are increasingly using satellite technology in their operations, but how can EGNOS and Galileo make a difference?. Safety Safety is at the core of all rail operations, within the framework of the future European rail traffic management system onboard satellite navigation solutions integrated with command and […]

EGNOS and Galileo for Waterborne Transport

                                                       

Global maritime traffic is ever-increasing and Europe’s ports and inland waterways are becoming ever more congested. accurate and reliable positioning a key elements for a range of systems, that help streamline port operations, improve safety and protect the maritime environments. new satellite based systems are also being deployed that can substantially reduce response times in […]

Variable Rate Application

EGNOS and Galileo for Agriculture

                                                       

World have to produce more food with a limited amount of land due to an increase in global population. farmers are also faced with rising costs and a growing demand for traceability and reduced environmental impact. two of Europe’s flagship space programs EGNOS and Galileo help farmers meet these challenges. EGNOS the European geostationary navigation […]
