With the declaration of Galileo Initial Services in December 2016, Galileo officially moved from testing phase to the provision of live services. EGNOS was the first pan-European navigation system designed specifically for the civil aviation sector and its Safety of Life service was launched in 2011. It has come a long way since then. Galileo differentiators are moving forward, opening the door to application developers and added value service providers to create new business opportunities. The EGNOS Open Service has doubled its coverage area since declaration and now serves a large user community.
In the past two years, we have assisted to an unprecedented acceleration in the market uptake of the European GNSS. During E-GNSS Service provision workshop, the GSA will present the latest development of both Galileo and EGNOS services, their performances and user adoption. The session aims to ensure that the systems deliver high quality services that are accessible to all in the most cost-efficient manner and how evolutions are shaped to meet user needs, both current and future.
The workshop gathers E-GNSS stakeholders, professional and commercial users and application developers, to share the current status of the EU Satellite Navigation programmes, and the vision for a stronger EU presence in the sat-nav applications landscape.
