Deploying Galileo in UAS operations

A consortium formed by GMV, VVA and FADA-Catec has assesed the Galileo and EGNOS features and services in the UAS sector for Air Traffic Management and other different applications.

The Egnss4RPAS project has deployed several test trials for unmanned aircrafts under the European Comission order to show the usefulness and aplicability of Galileo and Egnos services for UAS operations. The trials have proved that Galileo offers a better response compared to the GPS systems, as well as the corrections provided by EGNOS to enhance the positioning provided by GPS, showing precission errors below 1 meter.

The trials have showed without a doubt that when Galileo and EGNOS technologies are used together, the performances are very rebust.
