The Omega Navigation System

                                                       

The Omega navigation system is a worldwide all-weather navigational system providing a fix accuracy of 1 to 2 nautical miles, which can be used by submarines and the aircraft as well as surface ships. like Loran it’s a radio navigation system, however Omega uses VLF, very low frequency radio signals, which permit extremely long-range navigation.

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. […]

What is Era-Glonass System?

                                                       

Era-Glonass the world’s first national accident emergency response system began operating throughout the entire Russian Federation on the first of January 2015. the primary mission of the Era-Glonass system is to decrease time for communicating the information about accidents to the emergency response services, which would allow to save more lives and mitigate the injuries […]

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 […]

Galileo for Driving

                                                       

The way we drive is changing. many of today’s cars and trucks are already equipped with advanced driver assistance including lane departure warning systems, automated braking, assisted steering and adaptive cruise control. connected navigation systems allow drivers to find their way and share information, making driving safer and reducing congestion. tomorrow transport services will operate […]

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 […]
