Disaster management

European GNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) can provide a significant support in order to effectively manage the response to an emergency or a disaster. During distress events where the management of the consequences is critical, it is mandatory to have access to precise and updated information. GNSS makes a significant contribution during the mitigation phase ofRead More

GIANO – robust GNSS for critical infrastructure

Thales Alenia Space has been awarded a grant under the European GNSS Agency’s (GSA) Fundamental Elements funding mechanism for the development of the GIANO (Galileo-based TIming Receiver for CriticAl INfrastructure Robustness) receiver, which aims to make critical infrastructure more robust against interference, jamming and spoofing. The GIANO receiver will leverage Galileo and EGNOS-driven innovation toRead More

Development of a drone-borne Galileo receiver

European GNSS, EGNOS and Galileo, provides significant added value to drone navigation, positioning and related applications, and the use of their differentiators will be instrumental in opening up new business opportunities. RPAS are becoming the 3rd GNSS market segment for device shipments according to the last GSA market report. Drones generally integrate GNSS solutions inRead More
