In the frame of the update and extension of EGNOS ground segment, Telespazio Belgium, Telespazio Spa and its partner Thalès France are in charge of the preliminary site survey before the deployment of the new system EGNOS V3.
European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) is Europe's regional satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) that is used to improve the performance of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS).
For the third generation of the EGNOS augmentation system (V3), the GSA requested the complete overhaul of the EGNOS ground segment, which was becoming obsolete. Before the new generation can be deployed, each existing and new potential site should be surveyed for compliance with the high level of specification requirement of the new system in terms of infrastructure, connectivity, security and EMI compatibility.
These activities are the object of a contract awarded by GSA to a consortium of companies lead by Telespazio Belgium.
