E-GNSS User Assembly

The E-GNSS User Assembly aims at facilitating exchange between users of position, navigation and time solutions and the organizations and institutions involved in the management, service provision and security of Galileo and EGNOS. All users of the systems are welcome, including: representatives of user associations (such as standardisation bodies and industry groups), regulatory bodies, and members of the value chain such as receiver and chipset manufacturers and application developers who, with their developments, influence the technologies used in the solutions.

During The E-GNSS User Assembly the GSA will present:

• an update on the User needs and Requirements,
• the results of User satisfaction survey,
• highlights from the latest GNSS Market Report 2019, and
• E-GNSS – Galileo 2nd generation.


Moreover, keynote speakers representing each market segment and receiver manufacturers will be invited to share the latest trends and applications on consumer solutions, road, aviation, drones, maritime, emergency response, rail, agriculture, geomatics, critical infrastructure and spacecraft.
