New EC service monitors ionosphere for GNSS users

14.1.2021 16:24  
The IPS anticipates any degradation of performance, allowing operators to put in place mitigation measures in good time.
Published: 
14 January 2021

Ionospheric effects can be a major source of disruption to GNSS signals, so it is important to be able to predict and compensate for these disturbances. With this in mind, the European Commission-funded Galileo Ionosphere Prediction Service (IPS) monitors ionospheric activity and informs GNSS users in good time of an upcoming event that could disrupt GNSS signals and applications.

The IPS monitors and forecasts solar and ionospheric activity and predicts its effect on GNSS signals and on the final performance of user applications. The Service makes it possible to anticipate any degradation of performance, allowing operators to put in place mitigation measures in good time.

The IPS predictions are delivered for ionosphere-related parameters and GNSS performance at both the European and global level. Delivered in three time scales (nowcast, 30 minutes and 24 hours ahead), the alerts are sent to registered users when the IPS predictions exceed thresholds that have been-pre-defined by the user.

User benefits

The IPS will benefit all users of GNSS signals whose operations can be seriously disrupted by insufficient GNSS performance, in particular the aviation industry, where GNSS performance is important for safety.

In addition, institutional actors interested in operational space weather can reuse the IPS prediction products, compare them with their own predictions, or feed the additional observation and prediction data into their own algorithms to improve the reliability of the forecast. Other users that stand to benefit include electricity and energy grids and professional users such as construction and civil engineering businesses that require stable precise positioning accuracy for their operations.

The prototype has been developed and funded by Horizon 2020, involving a team of engineers and scientists from across Europe, with the support of the Joint Research Centre in Ispra, Italy.

The prototype is now operated by the Joint Research Center, Ispra, where tests and validation campaigns will continue and new products will be developed and added to the product portfolio.

Updated Galileo OS SIS ICD now available

11.1.2021 18:19  
The updated OS SIS ICD is available for download on the GSC website.
Published: 
12 January 2021

We are pleased to announce the release of the new Galileo Open Service Signal in Space Interface Control Document (OS SIS ICD v2.0). This second issue of the document is available for download in the Programme Reference Documents section of the European GNSS Service Centre (GSC) web portal.

The OS SIS ICD is geared towards Galileo receiver manufacturers and it specifies the interface between the Galileo Space Segment and the Galileo User Segment.

What’s new?

This new issue of the OS SIS ICD introduces major updates for all Galileo Open Service users. In particular, three new features are introduced to the I/NAV message transmitted on the Galileo E1-B signal component:

  • Reduced Clock and Ephemeris Data (RedCED);
  • Reed-Solomon Outer Forward Error Correction Data (FEC2); and
  • Secondary Synchronization Pattern (SSP).

These new features represent a major evolution of the Galileo Open Service signals, which will provide all users with a more robust and faster retrieval of the Clock and Ephemeris Data, particularly for users in challenging environments, while at the same time allowing for a faster reconstruction of the Galileo System Time (GST). 

This will result in a faster Time to First Fix for users whose receivers are able to exploit the new solutions. The new solutions are fully backward compatible, as they take advantage of parts of the I/NAV message previously marked as spare or reserved. This means that there will be no impact on legacy users and receivers that do not process these spare/reserved fields.

Advance preparation

Although these modified signals are not yet being broadcast by the Galileo satellites, this document will allow receiver manufacturers to prepare in advance. The Galileo Programme intends to support receiver manufacturers with the implementation of the new I/NAV capabilities, including by means of dedicated testing campaigns to be carried out in 2021-2022. The Galileo system is set to begin transmitting the new I/NAV capabilities by 2023.

The GSA will communicate with users through the usual channels about these possibilities in due time.  For more details, please contact the Galileo Help Desk. Moreover, if you wish to receive NAGUs and notifications about new Galileo publications, please register on the GSC web portal and subscribe to our Newsletters.

Users benefitting from Galileo accuracy in latest Javad receivers

11.1.2021 10:09  
Triumph-LS Plus obtains stable excellent RTK result in challenging environment using all Galileo signals
Published: 
11 January 2021

Users in the surveying community, among others, are benefiting from Galileo accuracy in the latest GNSS receivers from Javad, which are able to track all available Galileo signals. Thanks to the increased resistance to multipath and advanced signal design, Galileo capability makes the receivers particularly suitable for work in challenging environments.

Javad receivers have been Galileo-enabled since 2008, when the company’s receivers first tracked the Galileo E1/E5A signals. Since then, the receivers’ capabilities have expanded to add the Galileo E1/E5A, E5B/AltBoc and finally the E6 signals. The company’s 874-channel TRIUMPH 3 receiver, with new application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), benefits from the full range of Galileo signals, as does its TRIUMPH-LS Plus receiver. 

Leveraging Galileo to benefit users

The receivers use all Galileo signals in a multi-system, multi-frequency RTK solution with four “super engines”. Each engine uses all signals from all satellites but with different parameters for different conditions. Galileo E5 AltBOC signals show the greatest multipath reduction compared to other signals and, when combined with Javad's multipath reduction (MPR) technique, this makes for an optimal solution.

“Ensuring that end users have the optimal service is our ultimate goal. This is why it is gratifying to see companies leveraging Galileo differentiators, such as reduced resistance to multipath, and combining these with their own techniques to deliver optimal service to their customers,” said Eduard Escalona, GSA Geomatics Market Development Innovation Officer.

HAS-enabled

Javad receivers also efficiently process Galileo signals for a fast and reliable Real Time Postprocessed Kinematics (RTPK) solution. RTPK is a recent innovation at Javad GNSS and combines the strengths of RTK and PPK into a system that can post-process RTK data and verify its results in parallel and in real time.

And this: Precise Point Positioning opens up new possibilities for mass market applications

In addition, Javad GNSS receivers benefit from the low level of orbit and clock errors of Galileo signals. As a result, there are minimal jumps in computed autonomous position, even under conditions with poor position dilution of precision (PDOP). The JAVAD GNSS receivers are also designed to work with the Galileo High Accuracy Service (HAS) and support will be announced after the final specifications of the HAS have been published.

Ideas in the area of smart transport for the Green Deal include smart mobility solutions and applications to optimise public transport. Other selected projects propose new concepts for sustainable agriculture (vineyards, apiculture), carbon footprint monitoring solutions, and tracking applications for assets, humans and pets. Solutions based on drones and robotics were particularly popular. 

Expanding GNSS community

There is a good geographical spread in this year’s competition, with applications selected from 22 countries, with France and Spain leading the pack with seven selected projects each, followed by Italy with four. We were also happy to see innovative applications from additional countries this year, including Croatia, Lithuania, Slovenia and Cyprus. Most of the selected projects are start-ups or groups of students, along with a few established companies. 

MyGalileoSolution in numbers

The vast majority of applicants this year applied to the GSA for the first time, which shows that we are expanding our GNSS community. What’s more, thanks to #MyGalileoSolution, four university spinoffs have been launched, creating business opportunities by translating research results into workable technologies that lead to market solutions.

“All the applications in this year’s competition were high quality, which made the selection a long and challenging process,” said Justyna Redelkiewicz Musial, in charge of LBS and IoT market development at the GSA. “All the selected teams have been participating in virtual progress calls  with their assigned mentors over the last few weeks, and they are excited to have the opportunity to realize their dream products with the support of the GSA,” she said.

End-of-year message from GSA Executive Director Rodrigo da Costa

23.12.2020 10:55  
 GSA Executive Director Rodrigo da Costa
Published: 
23 December 2020

2020 has been a challenging year, yet thanks to the dedication of the GSA team and our cooperation with the European Commission, ESA, Member States, industry (upstream and downstream) and with our colleagues and stakeholders throughout Europe, we have managed to continue to deliver secure EGNOS and Galileo services to an increasing number of users around the globe.

The year started with the declaration of a key Galileo differentiator – the Return Link Service. The value of the service was demonstrated recently with the dramatic rescue of a French sailor when his solo round-the-world yacht race came to an end in rough seas. 

Another early success was the entry into service of the EGNOS GEO-3 payload, which will augment both GPS and Galileo in the L1 and L5 bands, provide additional satellite-based augmentation system service capabilities through a new SBAS channel on L5, and will deliver increased EGNOS service availability within and beyond the EU, supporting a growing number of users.

However, by March it was already clear that the Coronavirus situation was not going to go away any time soon. As Europe entered lockdown, across all GSA sites we started to work on ensuring business continuity. With little advance notice, and leveraging on the agility and creativity of the whole team, we quickly moved almost all our activities on-line without significant disruption. Together with the European Commission we looked into GNSS-based solutions to respond to the crisis, and developed an app to ease pressure at the EU’s internal borders. The “Galileo Green Lane” app proved to be very popular with border authorities and drivers and helped enable the efficient transit of critical goods, keeping EU borders open to freight at this critically important time.

Throughout the year, we continued to work on a series of initiatives to boost innovation and support European entrepreneurs working on ideas and applications leveraging Galileo, EGNOS and Copernicus, with a particular focus on synergies between the three. Engagement with the MyGalileoDrone, Geomatics on the Move, Farming by Satellite and MyGalileoSolution competitions has exceeded expectations. In October, we issued the third edition of our eagerly awaited GNSS User Technology Report. Do make sure you have a read through it yourself over the Christmas break if you have not yet done so.

Together we have put in place all the necessary measures to increase the resilience of operations at the Galileo and EGNOS operational centres in Europe and remote sites around the world. The success of this joint effort is measured by the quality of services delivered every day by EGNOS and Galileo. We have also deployed further system updates, in cooperation with ESA and industry, and have demonstrated the GSMC dual site operations with our new Galileo Security Monitoring Centre (GSMC) site in Spain. 

As we progress towards full operational capability, we are working non-stop to make Galileo more robust, continuously learning from day-to-day operations and our experience from past events. The Galileo Search and Rescue ground facilities have also been upgraded. The latest upgrades carried out on SAR/Galileo Local User Terminals in Spain, Cyprus and Norway are helping the International COSPAS-SARSAT Programme transition towards MEOSAR completion, which ultimately translates into more lives being saved.

All our events moved online, turning the physical restrictions imposed by Covid-19 into an opportunity to reach new user communities and go global, this was the case for example with the User Consultation Platform and our annual European Space Week online. The latter event, which was special to me since it was my first European Space Week as GSA Executive Director, was a great success with over 3000 participants from more than 100 countries. 

Looking to the year ahead, the transformation of the GSA into the European Union Space Programme Agency (EUSPA) will finally happen, with the new regulation expected to be formally adopted in early 2021. We will work together to overcome challenges and create opportunities, with a particular focus on exploiting the synergies between the different components of the programme.

As this challenging year ends, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my team at the GSA for their dedication, hard work, commitment and the great spirit demonstrated throughout the year. I would also like to thank our partners at the European Commission, at the European Space Agency and in the Member States and industry for your support in achieving our shared goals. Finally, I would like to thank you, the EUSpace user community, for your ongoing trust and support. It is thanks to this support that the GSA is growing from strength to strength and is able to continue delivering on the promise of space for Europe and its citizens.

Happy holidays to you all.

Space community gathers online to make EUSW a success

22.12.2020 12:43  
Over 300 participants from 100 countries took part in this year’s EUSW
Published: 
22 December 2020

Stakeholders from around Europe and the world gathered online on 7-12 December to attend this year’s edition of European Space Week. Despite the constraints put in place by the Coronavirus pandemic, the event was a great success, with over 3000 participants involved in the discussions, plenaries, consultation platforms and award ceremonies that took place during the week.

The first online edition of EUSW provided an occasion for members of the global space community to come together to celebrate the achievements of the European Space Programme. It was an occasion to hear from users about their needs and requirements, to discuss the strategic direction of EUSpace, and how to ensure that the programme continues to provide the services needed to meet Europe’s strategic priorities.

In total, there were around 100 speakers, who took part in 14 sessions spread across the week. Speaking at the week’s opening session, a plenary on the User Consultation Platform, European GNSS Agency (GSA) Executive Director Rodrigo da Costa noted that he was very happy to see that many people from Europe and around the world had registered to attend the event. “I am happy to see that we have quickly adapted to new circumstances, in the same way that the Space Programme has adapted to meet the needs of users,” he said.

Robust budgetary support

A series of plenary sessions early in the week discussed the latest developments in the EU Space Programme and its strategic direction for the coming years, along with how to support the development of business based on EUSpace. At the session, EC Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton noted that the space business was changing. “The cost of doing space is decreasing, competition is evolving and European space actors will have to adapt,” he said, adding that to support this change, the next Multi-annual Financial Framework would have a robust budgetary envelope of EUR 13 billion for space.

Stakeholders from around Europe and the world gathered online on 7-12 December to attend this year’s edition of European Space Week. Despite the constraints put in place by the Coronavirus pandemic, the event was a great success, with over 3000 participants involved in the discussions, plenaries, consultation platforms and award ceremonies that took place during the week.

The first online edition of EUSW provided an occasion for members of the global space community to come together to celebrate the achievements of the European Space Programme. It was an occasion to hear from users about their needs and requirements, to discuss the strategic direction of EUSpace, and how to ensure that the programme continues to provide the services needed to meet Europe’s strategic priorities.

In total, there were around 100 speakers, who took part in 14 sessions spread across the week. Speaking at the week’s opening session, a plenary on the User Consultation Platform, European GNSS Agency (GSA) Executive Director Rodrigo da Costa noted that he was very happy to see that many people from Europe and around the world had registered to attend the event. “I am happy to see that we have quickly adapted to new circumstances, in the same way that the Space Programme has adapted to meet the needs of users,” he said.

Robust budgetary support

A series of plenary sessions early in the week discussed the latest developments in the EU Space Programme and its strategic direction for the coming years, along with how to support the development of business based on EUSpace. At the session, EC Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton noted that the space business was changing. “The cost of doing space is decreasing, competition is evolving and European space actors will have to adapt,” he said, adding that to support this change, the next Multi-annual Financial Framework would have a robust budgetary envelope of EUR 13 billion for space.

In addition to the online format, there were a number of innovations at this year’s event. Copernicus was represented for the first time, with a session on the status and future of Europe’s eyes on Earth. There were also new sessions, such as on how to promote the EU space programme, and how to improve equality and inclusion in the industry. A session on secure satellite communications presented the GOVSATCOM programme, Europe’s response to cyber and hybrid threats and natural disasters.

There was also a high amount of interest in the Investor Forum, which brought start-ups/SMEs from a wide range of business backgrounds together with investors interested in investing in EU space technology. In total, 10 start-ups presented their ideas to the panel of investors. For more information on this session, click here

The Galileo Search and Rescue ground facilities are now upgraded for MEOSAR Full Operational Capability performance

17.12.2020 16:15  
Published: 
18 December 2020

The latest upgrades carried out on the SAR/Galileo Local User Terminals of Spain, Cyprus and Norway, earlier in the summer are helping the International COSPAS-SARSAT Programme transition towards MEOSAR completion.

Since the declaration of its Initial Services in December 2016, Galileo has enabled a multitude of new solutions across all market segments. One of the system’s unique capability that is being provided uninterrupted since day one is the Search and Rescue (SAR) service together with the pioneering Galileo Return Link Service. Galileo’s contribution to the Medium Earth Orbit Satellites Search and Rescue System (MEOSAR) managed by the International COSPAS-SARSAT Programme translates into 2000 lives saved per year. 

Galileo SAR ground infrastructure supporting the "invisible’’ space segment 

From emitting a distress signal to being rescued by emergency responders, the Galileo signals travel 23,000 km from the ground to space and back. When a person in distress activates a Galileo enabled emergency beacon, the Galileo satellites capture the signal and transmit it to three ground stations strategically deployed across Europe called ‘’MEOLUTs’’ (Medium Earth Orbit Local User Terminals) which calculate the precise location of the person in distress. Once the location is determined, it is transmitted to different Mission Control Centres (MCCs) around the world that coordinate the rescue operations. It is only when the MCCs are informed about a potential incident that the Galileo Return Link Service is activated. The user then receives back via the Galileo satellites a confirmation message that their position is known and that help is on the way.

The European MEOLUTs are an integral part of the Galileo SAR ground segment. The three MEOLUTs based in Larnaca (Cyprus), Maspalomas (Spain) and Spitsbergen (Norway) are equipped with 12 measurement antennas (4 antennas per station). For a more robust performance and coverage, the twelve antennas are further coordinated and optimized by a specific facility called MEOLUT Tracking Coordination Facility deployed in Toulouse (France).

MEOLUTs update bringing the Medium Earth Orbit SAR System one step closer to Full Operational Capability (FOC)

The MEOSAR system offers many advantages to SAR operations such as near real-time worldwide coverage and faster detection and localisation services to all end users. To support the transition towards the FOC of the MEOSAR system, the European MEOLUTs were upgraded during the course of the past months and an extensive test campaign was conducted. The results met the operational, performance and functional requirements specified in the COSPAS-SARSAT documentation to allow operations at a MEOSAR FOC performance level. The results were reviewed by a COSPAS-SARSAT dedicated expert working group in October which recommended the approval.

The European MEOLUTs are the first to achieve such level of performance. This milestone coupled with an upgrade at the Mission Control Centers in Cyprus, Spain and Norway will be of big relevance when COSPAS-SARSAT determines MEOSAR’s readiness to Full Operational Capability.

The Larnaca MEOLUT facility has been installed on Makarios Teleport site. It is an isolated area close to the southern shore of Cyprus between the coastal towns of Limassol and Larnaca. It is operated by Cyprus Telecommunication Authorities and is connected to the Cyprus Mission Control Centre. 

The Maspalomas MEOLUT facility has been installed on the Maspalomas Space Station site on the Spanish Canary island of Gran Canaria. It is operated by INTA (National Institute for Aerospace Technology in Spain) and is connected to the Spanish Mission Control Centre.

The Spitsbergen MEOLUT facility has been installed on the SvalSat Satellite Ground Station site at the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard. It is operated by Kongsberg Satellite Services and is connected to the Norwegian Mission Control Centre.

Galileo’s contribution to the Medium Earth Orbit Satellites Search and Rescue System (MEOSAR) managed by the International COSPAS-SARSAT Programme translates into 2000 lives saved per year. 

Galileo SAR ground infrastructure supporting the "invisible’’ space segment 

From emitting a distress signal to being rescued by emergency responders, the Galileo signals travel 23,000 km from the ground to space and back. When a person in distress activates a Galileo enabled emergency beacon, the Galileo satellites capture the signal and transmit it to three ground stations strategically deployed across Europe called ‘’MEOLUTs’’ (Medium Earth Orbit Local User Terminals) which calculate the precise location of the person in destress. Once the location is determined, it is transmitted to different Mission Control Centres (MCCs) around the world that coordinate the rescue operations. It is only when the MCCs are informed about a potential incident that the Galileo Return Link Service is activated. The user then receives back via the Galileo satellites a confirmation message that their position is known and that help is on the way.

The European MEOLUTs are an integral part of the Galileo SAR ground segment. The three MEOLUTs based in Larnaca (Cyprus), Maspalomas (Spain) and Spitsbergen (Norway) are equipped with 12 measurement antennas (4 antennas per station). For a more robust performance and coverage, the twelve antennas are further coordinated and optimized by a specific facility called MEOLUT Tracking Coordination Facility deployed in Toulouse (France).

MEOLUTs update bringing the Medium Earth Orbit SAR System one step closer to Full Operational Capability (FOC)

The MEOSAR system offers many advantages to SAR operations such as near real-time worldwide coverage and faster detection and localisation services to all end users. To support the transition towards the FOC of the MEOSAR system, the European MEOLUTs were upgraded during the course of the past months and an extensive test campaign was conducted. The results met the operational, performance and functional requirements specified in the COSPAS-SARSAT documentation to allow operations at a MEOSAR FOC performance level. The results were reviewed by a COSPAS-SARSAT dedicated expert working group in October which recommended the approval.

The European MEOLUTs are the first to achieve such level of performance. This milestone coupled with an upgrade at the Mission Control Centers in Cyprus, Spain and Norway will be of big relevance when COSPAS-SARSAT determines MEOSAR’s readiness to Full Operational Capability.

The Larnaca MEOLUT facility has been installed on Makarios Teleport site. It is an isolated area close to the southern shore of Cyprus between the coastal towns of Limassol and Larnaca. It is operated by Cyprus Telecommunication Authorities and is connected to the Cyprus Mission Control Centre. 

The Maspalomas MEOLUT facility has been installed on the Maspalomas Space Station site on the Spanish Canary island of Gran Canaria. It is operated by INTA (National Institute for Aerospace Technology in Spain) and is connected to the Spanish Mission Control Centre.

The Spitsbergen MEOLUT facility has been installed on the SvalSat Satellite Ground Station site at the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard. It is operated by Kongsberg Satellite Services and is connected to the Norwegian Mission Control Centre.

Horizon Europe will bring additional investment to the downstream space sector
Published: 
17 December 2020

A session on Horizon 2020 success stories, held on the final day of European Space Week, highlighted some of the innovative projects that took advantage of EU H2020 funding to develop ideas leveraging Galileo, EGNOS and Copernicus, or synergies between the programmes, to produce products for the market. The session included some valuable advice for anyone thinking about applying for funding.

Kicking off the session, GSA Executive Director Rodrigo da Costa noted the importance of the downstream space sector in terms of job and value creation. “Innovation and the increasing volume of data and services available, are contributing to the sustainable growth of EU start-ups, SMEs and companies,” he said, adding that success stories from Horizon 2020 were proof that EU investment support is essential for innovation. 

Looking to the future, da Costa said that the GSA would continue its work with Horizon Europe, building on the successes of Horizon 2020. “The next period will bring additional investment and instruments to the downstream space segment,” he said.

The representative from the Directorate-General for Defence Industry and Space (DG DEFIS) also noted that the downstream sector is an area of growth where many jobs are created, adding that tomorrow’s space applications would pave the way for a whole range of innovative applications for European industry. He also introduced the EUR 1-billion CASSINI (Competitive Space Start-ups for INnovatIon) initiative, which aims to expand the number of start-ups creating businesses based on innovative EU space technologies.

The voice of experience

A number of successful Horizon 2020 projects gave their advice to other projects considering applying for EU support. The need to put together a strong team was something that many of the successful projects advised. Isabel Botey from the DCS4COP project said that it is necessary to gather a strong team of experts, and have a strong vision and an easy to understand strategy. “Talk to customers. They are the best consultants for a successful business,” she said.

Ernst Pfeiffer from the Large European Antenna project (Project LEA) advised projects to apply for funding only if its fits exactly with their project’s specialisation. “Select your team carefully and involve your national contact point for advice and recommendations,” he said. Linda Moser from the EcoLaSS project advised applicants to have a strong vision that goes beyond tomorrow’s state of the art and meets societal challenges. She said that, as projects can last for a long time, it is important to ensure that the results will still be relevant by the project’s end. 

And this: High accuracy and synergies in focus at UCP

Raúl Arnau Prieto from Greenpatrol advised applicants to prepare their proposal well in advance and match their technical challenges to the scope of the call, while Pedro Russo from SpaceEU advised to build a consortium that truly cares about the challenge that the project addresses.

Winding up the session, MEP Cristophe Grudler noted that the projects presented during the session showed how dynamic the EU space sector is, and proved that EU investment is key to support competitiveness and innovation in the EU space industry.

Timing is everything – GNSS and the energy grids of the future

15.12.2020 10:22  
Robust GNSS will be a key enabler of future smart grids
Published: 
15 December 2020

In the smart energy grids of the future, all energy market participants will communicate with each other, making energy supplies more reactive. This will bring many benefits, including reduced costs, improved efficiency and the seamless integration of the distribution of energy sources, including renewable energy. However, for smart grids to operate successfully they will have to be based on a solid and robust synchronisation infrastructure. This is where GNSS comes in.

Grid systems rely on GNSS clocks as a time reference source and atomic clocks as a backup in case of outages. GNSS receivers are comparably low-cost, reliable, high-precision timing sources that can be implemented in a large number in intelligent grids, to enable real-time automatic control of the grid.

“Due to the importance of the power system to our lives and economies, and the likelihood of future smart grid reliance on high-precision timing, it is critical that GNSS signals be resilient against interference, including spoofing,” said GSA Executive Director da Costa. “The accuracy and robustness of the Galileo service, and the added layer of protection offered by the Open Service Navigation Message Authentication, means that Galileo will be the go-to solution for grid operators,” he said.

Galileo time

Two projects currently developing Galileo-enabled timing receivers, supported by the GSA through its Fundamental Elements funding programme, are GIANO and GEARS. Both receivers will make critical infrastructure and in particular the energy networks more robust against spoofing and will provide accurate Galileo-based timing and synchronisation capabilities.

Read this: Galileo for Timing and Synchronisation Applications

“The Galileo programme is slowly becoming the EU’s official time reference that, together with national UTC(k) network time distribution, creates new powerful and robust synchronisation references for smart-grids,” said Tomasz Widomski, a member of the supervisory board of ELPROMA, a Polish manufacturer of NTP/PTP time servers.

“It is believed that the power industry evolving towards smart grids will rely on this solid foundation of timing information.  The main and regional systems must be tamper-proof and protected against external interferences – the time and synchronisation must be safe,” he said.

Horizon 2020 success story

ELPROMA was a member of the Horizon 2020 ‘DEMonstrator of EGNSS services based on Time Reference Architecture’ (Demetra) project, which developed a prototype of an EGNSS-based time disseminator that provides time certification, redundancy, resilience, integrity and improved accuracy, while validating the concept of ‘time as a service’. 

And this: Galileo-inspired opportunities for critical infrastructures presented at ITSF 2020

The company went on to win a seven-figure contract to supply Rubidium IEEE1588 NTS-5000 servers to support a country-scale modern smart grid system in Asia (read more here). These servers incorporate a modified version of the cyber-security solution developed as part of the Demetra project. As such, this is a Horizon 2020 success story.

Published: 
10 December 2020

Alphamonitoring System, from the joint Italian-French team Alphageomega, has taken the Traditional Geomatics prize in this year’s Geomatics on the Move Competition, while the Integrated Geomatics Prize went to the Greek team 3 Deep Vision for their project Bathymetry from UAV Imagery and Machine Learning. The winners shared in the overall prize of EUR 30,000, with a total of 10 prizes offered in the two categories.

The Traditional Geomatics category looked for solutions in which the main innovation was based on the use of EGNSS, employing traditional equipment such as surveying or GIS grade GNSS receivers. In this category, Alphageomega designed and built an all-in-one system that helps to improve remote real-time knowledge of displacements at sensitive critical infrastructures and the surrounding environment.

Meanwhile, the Integrated Geomatics category targeted integrated surveying solutions that use Galileo or EGNOS along with tools and technologies such as drones, mobile mapping, laser scanners or Augmented/Mixed Reality, both within geomatics applications or beyond. 

The winner in this category - Bathymetry from UAV Imagery and Machine Learning - aims to implement a scalable and transferable web service for mapping shallow waters. This web service will facilitate the detailed and accurate monitoring and mapping of sensitive coastal areas, especially in times of climate crisis, taking as input georeferenced UAV images or 3D point clouds.

Targeted solutions

“With the Geomatics on the Move Prize, born from our collaboration with  the CLGE and the CLGE Young Surveyors’ Prize, we are encouraging innovators to leverage space technology and target real needs in the mapping and surveying community. Despite being the first edition in this new format, I was very impressed with the quality of the entries and congratulate the worthy winners,” said GSA Head of Market Development Fiammetta Diani.

The winning idea will help farmers reduce water waste and improve fertilisation practices
Published: 
09 December 2020

Graniot, a team from Spain, has won this year’s 1st Farming by Satellite Prize. The winning team developed a web application that uses European satellite technologies to help agronomists and farmers monitor crops, reduce water waste and avoid poor fertilisation practices. The Farming by Satellite Prize promotes the use of GNSS and Earth observation in Europe and includes a special Africa Prize.

The Italian team Genuine received second prize in the competition for a web-based solution that identifies crop stress the optimal tractor path for irrigation and fertilisation using Copernicus, EGNOS and Galileo. The third prize went to AI4OceanFarming, also from Spain, for a solution that uses satellite data to identify ocean farming threats such as harmful algal blooms (HABs), ocean acidification (OA), and invasive species. Finally, the Special Africa Prize went to the Kenyan-Italian team GeoM&E for a solution that uses European satellite technology to monitor coffee diseases. 

The winners beat stiff competition from 40 other young teams with innovative ideas. The judges selected first a short list of the best teams to then take their ideas forward to a ‘Deep Dive’ phase. The selected eight grand finalists had the opportunity to pitch their solutions during a final ‘live’ judging round. 

An inspiring experience

“We’re honoured to be chosen as winners of the Farming by Satellite Prize 2020. We will put the EUR 5,000 cash prize to good use developing our satellite crop monitoring web application further. The whole journey has been a great experience that would not have be possible without the support of UGREmprendedora and the Andalucia Agrotech Digital Innovation Hub,” said Pablo Romero Díaz and Manuel Castro Ruiz from Graniot. “We’ve learnt so much. We have been inspired by the feedback from the judges and have enjoyed seeing the entries from all the grand finalists during the awards ceremony.”

Angsa Robotics wins overall prize in Galileo Masters 2020

9.12.2020 10:14  
Galileo Masters delivers forward-thinking space applications for future generations
Published: 
09 December 2020

Angsa Robotics has won the overall prize in the Galileo Masters 2020 with “Clive,” Germany’s first autonomous trash collection robot, which collects small pieces of rubbish left on grass or gravel that would otherwise cause ecological and economic problems.

Thanks to its unique artificial neural network architecture, “Clive” can move independently while detecting and localising individual objects, which enables it to clean grass and gravel areas. Individual objects such as bottle caps or cigarette butts are targeted for collection but insects are spared, in a win-win solution for the environment. Since conventional sweeping machines are designed for flat asphalt surfaces, they are unsuitable for these types of surfaces, so these surfaces have typically had to be cleaned manually. 

“Clive” also creates an economic benefit for its customers. Its target use cases include the cleaning of festival venues after events and the daily cleaning of parks and other green spaces. Precise localisation via GNSS is essential to its operation: With better localisation, the robot can plan a more efficient path and clean a given area faster. 

Forward-thinking applications

“Angsa Robotics is combining precise GNSS localisation with further state-of-the art techniques such as artificial intelligence and robotics. Its innovative solution is an impressive reflection of what the Agency was looking for with its three challenges in this year’s edition of Galileo Masters: forward-thinking applications of space for future generations,” European GNSS Agency (GSA) Executive Director Rodrigo da Costa said at the digital Space Awards.

After winning both the GSA Space for Our Planet Challenge and the Galileo Prize Bavaria, Angsa Robotics was presented with a EUR 10,000 cash prize as the Overall Winner of Galileo Masters 2020, having beat out 23 other challenge and prize winners. In addition, the pioneering start-up was selected as one of the winners of the Galileo Incubation Programme, which includes an incubation and acceleration prize package worth up to EUR 62,000.

The winners of the Galileo Masters 2020 international innovation competition were announced during the online Space Awards on 8 December as part of European Space Week 2020. Seventeen winners selected by the Galileo Prize Partners had the chance to present their ideas to an international audience at a Space Pitches session at EUSW on 7 December.

EGNSS driving innovation

European GNSS and the accurate, highly reliable positioning data it delivers is an essential element in the uptake of autonomous vehicles such as cars, drones, or robots. Autonomous vehicles are already a growing segment in the transport and automotive sector, in urban air mobility, and in the drone market. 

By combining GNSS with on-board sensors and systems such as cameras, radar, or inertial sensors, robotic applications are also being developed for the construction, manufacturing, maintenance, monitoring, and the healthcare and household sectors. Satellite navigation data provides the accuracy, integrity, reliability, and availability required to operate autonomous vehicles. 

Global innovation network for Galileo

Galileo Masters’ network of 101 partners from 18 countries focuses on the regional implementation of the competition to ensure a high level of diversity while enhancing both job growth potential and regional development opportunities. The competition’s backbone consists of 17 Prize Partners that are involved in specific areas at the local level, providing participants with valuable support in launching their businesses across Europe. 

“Galileo Masters has given a significant boost to the rise of the GNSS industry in Europe,” said AZO CEO Thorsten Rudolph. “The top 100 companies that have grown out of the innovative ideas of more than 13,000 Galileo Masters participants since 2004 have created more than 3,300 jobs and generated EUR 178 million in total turnover in 2019. In recent years, these companies have also raised around EUR 524 million in venture capital.”

By fostering entrepreneurs and start-ups, Galileo Masters’ long-term objective is to strengthen Europe’s competitiveness with high-tech space solutions on a global scale. This was why the European Commission established Europe’s unique Galileo Incubation programme for the top six winners of Galileo Masters. For the fourth time, this programme will offer the year’s winners access to dedicated incubation services (worth up to EUR 372,000 in total) at their preferred incubation centre in the Europe-wide Galileo Masters network.

High accuracy and synergies in focus at UCP

8.12.2020 11:26  
UCP feedback will help improve current services and shape future service developments
Published: 
08 December 2020

European Space Week 2020 kicked off on Monday 7 December with the User Consultation Platform (UCP) plenary, where users from different market segments presented the results of work carried out during the UCP over the previous week. Copernicus users were included in the UCP for the first time, and possible services and applications arising from synergies between Copernicus and Galileo were very much in focus.

Opening the UCP plenary, GSA Executive Director Rodrigo da Costa noted that users were central to EGNSS. “This is why the User Consultation Platform is so important – it helps us to develop new services,” he said, adding that it is also a valuable tool for industry and for policy-makers, with inputs feeding into the development of new GNSS applications and into Horizon Europe downstream activities. 

EGNSS for post-COVID recovery

Representing the Aviation segment, Vanessa Rullier, Senior Manager at the European Business Aviation Association, noted that recovery from COVID would depend on society’s ability to meet its social and environmental obligations. She said that more should be done to extend the use of EGNOS approaches to reduce aviation’s footprint. Synergies between EGNSS and Copernicus can play a role in finding the best sustainable trajectory for aircraft, she said.

Captain Johan Gahnstrom from CompetenSEA noted a clear trend towards the development of new assistance functions in the Maritime sector, along with the first steps towards automated vessels, not only for maritime and inland waterways but also for surveillance and fisheries control. With regard to the latter, he noted that a precise verified location would be essential for monitoring vessels, adding that Galileo and OS-NMA authentication would be very important in providing an undisputable position.

In the area of Natural Disasters & Emergency Response, Juan Luis Valero from the European Union Satellite Centre said that user feedback was positive on the three new Galileo services based on the Return Link Service (Remote Beacon Activation service, Two-Way Communication service, and Beacon Distress Positioning sharing service). He noted that users had identified a few challenges associated with the implementation of these new services, mainly related to power supply, user interface, and integration with platforms, such as boats. 

Need for High Accuracy 

Samuel Ryckewaert General Manager at Ubiscale said that in the Mass Market power consumption is a recurring issue and that 91% of users consider it crucial. Regarding Galileo differentiators, he said that 55% of users had shown a high interest in high accuracy. Miguel Ortiz, geolocation research engineer at the French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks (IFSTTAR), also noted the importance of high accuracy. He said that automated driving had high demands in terms of not only accuracy, but also availability and robustness. Regarding the High Accuracy Service, he said the UCP highlighted the need to design new EGNSS services and to plan their evolution aligned with the market landscape, to avoid entering into competition with commercial offers.

Michele Tozzi from the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) noted that GNSS is key for the deployment of new mobility services such as MaaS and combined mobility, and that space data is also extremely useful to improve the efficiency of traditional services. He said that it is necessary to raise awareness about Galileo’s benefits, and that projects such Ariadna are working to achieve this.

Heinz Reichinger from RUAG Space noted that there are many different applications in the space sector, all of which have different priorities and accuracy requirements. He said that a position accuracy of 3.5m is good for many space applications and that the Galileo HAS service is already needed in this market segment. He said that there is also increasing interest in authentication for resilient GNSS-based navigation in space.

Robustness against spoofing

Heiko Gerstrung, Managing Director at Meinberg Funkuhren GmbH noted that protection against GNSS jamming and spoofing threats is now on the agenda of most - if not all - infrastructure operators. The UCP Critical Infrastructure session highlighted the importance of a built-in GNSS authentication service such as Galileo OS-NMA - but also the Galileo Commercial Authentication Service (CAS) - to improve robustness against GNSS spoofing. 

And this: New Galileo-inspired opportunities for Critical Infrastructures presented at ITSF 2020

As regards the timing and synchronization segment, Guerric Pont from the GSA said that standardisation is an important building block to help market uptake. He said that telecom operators already had to follow standards, but that technical guidelines specifically covering GNSS issues would be useful. 

In the context of Agriculture and Geomatics, Pablo Olmos from Leica Geosystems said that synergies between EGNSS and Copernicus provide a much better understanding of the environment and unlock the potential to create new applications and businesses. He said that these synergies are also essential for the Farm to Fork strategy in agriculture, helping to reduce pesticide and fertilizer use. 

Winding up the session, the GSA’s Head of Market Development Fiametta Diani noted that the UCP had highlighted two commonalities from across the market segments: the importance of Galileo’s differentiators – HAS and OS-NMA - which will bring in new user communities; and the need to leverage synergies between Galileo and Copernicus, particularly in the area of sustainable mobility.

Looking ahead, she said that the inputs from the UCP would feed into updates of the GSA’s User Needs and Requirements reports, while helping to improve current services and shape the evolution of the next generation of services and applications.

Samuel Ryckewaert General Manager at Ubiscale said that in the Mass Market power consumption is a recurring issue and that 91% of users consider it crucial. Regarding Galileo differentiators, he said that 55% of users had shown a high interest in high accuracy. Miguel Ortiz, geolocation research engineer at the French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks (IFSTTAR), also noted the importance of high accuracy. He said that automated driving had high demands in terms of not only accuracy, but also availability and robustness. Regarding the High Accuracy Service, he said the UCP highlighted the need to design new EGNSS services and to plan their evolution aligned with the market landscape, to avoid entering into competition with commercial offers.

Michele Tozzi from the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) noted that GNSS is key for the deployment of new mobility services such as MaaS and combined mobility, and that space data is also extremely useful to improve the efficiency of traditional services. He said that it is necessary to raise awareness about Galileo’s benefits, and that projects such Ariadna are working to achieve this.

Heinz Reichinger from RUAG Space noted that there are many different applications in the space sector, all of which have different priorities and accuracy requirements. He said that a position accuracy of 3.5m is good for many space applications and that the Galileo HAS service is already needed in this market segment. He said that there is also increasing interest in authentication for resilient GNSS-based navigation in space.

Robustness against spoofing

Heiko Gerstung, Managing Director at Meinberg Funkuhren GmbH noted that protection against GNSS jamming and spoofing threats is now on the agenda of most - if not all - infrastructure operators. The UCP Critical Infrastructure session highlighted the importance of a built-in GNSS authentication service such as Galileo OS-NMA - but also the Galileo Commercial Authentication Service (CAS) - to improve robustness against GNSS spoofing.

As regards the timing and synchronization segment, Guerric Pont from the GSA said that standardisation is an important building block to help market uptake. He said that telecom operators already had to follow standards, but that technical guidelines specifically covering GNSS issues would be useful. 

In the context of Agriculture and Geomatics, Pablo Olmos from Leica Geosystems said that synergies between EGNSS and Copernicus provide a much better understanding of the environment and unlock the potential to create new applications and businesses. He said that these synergies are also essential for the Farm to Fork strategy in agriculture, helping to reduce pesticide and fertilizer use. 

Winding up the session, the GSA’s Head of Market Development Fiametta Diani noted that the UCP had highlighted two commonalities from across the market segments: the importance of Galileo’s differentiators – HAS and OS-NMA - which will bring in new user communities; and the need to leverage synergies between Galileo and Copernicus, particularly in the area of sustainable mobility.

Looking ahead, she said that the inputs from the UCP would feed into updates of the GSA’s User Needs and Requirements reports, while helping to improve current services and shape the evolution of the next generation of services and applications.

International Civil Aviation Organisation approves new Standards and Recommended Practices putting forth the use of EGNOS and Galileo

Published:

Earlier in November, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) approved new Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) paving the way for the development of new Dual Frequency Multi-Constellation Satellite Based Augmentation Systems (DFMC SBAS).

The ICAO SARPs are technical specifications that constitute the basis for harmonized global aviation safety and efficiency in the air and on the ground. While not legally binding for ICAO Member States, SARPs help standardize functional and performance requirements of air navigation facilities and services and ensure the orderly development of air transport.

Based on analyses, simulations and tests carried out by various organizations around the world, the SARPs on the use and development of DFMC SBAS were validated and approved by the Navigation Systems Panel of the ICAO earlier in November.

"The approval of SARPs is a milestone for EGNOS and Galileo but also for European aviation. Dual Frequency Multi-constellation SBAS will become a key enabler in aviation and provide improved availability, continuity, and accuracy by correcting two frequencies from more than one constellation" says GSA’s Executive Director, Rodrigo da Costa.

"We’re also very proud to have contributed to the standardization, by initiating projects EDG²E  and MUGG aimed at prototyping GPS and Galileo SBAS receivers, and already driving the EGNOS programme on its way to implement this new DFMC SBAS standard through the development of EGNOS V3." confirmed Jean-Marc Pieplu, Head of the EGNOS Services Department at the GSA.

DFMC SBAS & aviation: opening up new possibilities for air transportation

With multi-constellation becoming the norm, the GNSS industry is now witnessing a shift towards the adoption of multi-frequency. Four of the global SBAS plan to upgrade their services to support multiple frequency bands and multiple constellations in the years to come.

While the current SBASs can only correct GPS and GLONASS signals, the DFMC SBAS concept will enable signal corrections from multiple GNSS constellations and will have the ability to capture signals from 92 satellites simultaneously.

DMFC SBASs will also enable the use of non-Geostationary satellites for sending signal corrections. In the case of EGNOS, the potential use of satellites in Highly Elliptical Orbit (HEO) can allow for better coverage in northern latitudes, increased availability for EGNOS supported approaches and thus more accessible European airports. 

While avionics will continue to benefit from the L1 frequency, the additional L5 frequency will provide robustness against radiofrequency interference on L1 or L5 frequencies. What is more, using dual frequencies equals more resilience to ionospheric disturbances caused by magnetic storms but also robustness against spoofing or jamming.

Augmenting more than one constellation provides also an extra layer of navigation safety for airlines in case one GNSS constellation is degraded or becomes unavailable.

For more information on the current performance and evolution of EGNOS, the European SBAS, register for the EGNOS Service Status Session taking place on 8 December at 14:00 CET during the European Space Week 2020.

Space for Agriculture: Meet the top 8 solutions

With more than 80 submissions from across Europe and Africa received, 18 pre-selected teams participated in the Deep Dive Phase, presenting their innovations in pitch deck format. Eight grand finalists have been selected and are now competing for the first three places and the Special Africa Prize in a prize pool totalling €10,000:

  • AI4Ocean Farming - Using satellite data for ocean farming

This solution studies the feasibility of establishing a space-connected ocean farming system. AI4OceanFarming identifies ocean farming threats to mitigate losses and increase the success rate and performance of this farm sector. This analysis is done by merging satellite data from Copernicus together with GNSS, Mercator Ocean, ECMWF, in-situ data from IoT devices deployed on the field, and their own specialised databases. The team hopes to optimise the performance of ocean farming, increasing food security and minimising the overexploitation of ocean resources.

  • Genuine - Optimising tractor navigation route

Genuine is a unique web application to support farmers with identifying the crop borders, crop stress, and to guide tractor paths for optimal fertilization and irrigation. The solution combines Copernicus Sentinel-2 data and Galileo signals to generate prescription maps and to improve farmers’ activities in the field. The team aims to provide an integrated Copernicus and EGNSS solution that accelerates the transition to sustainable agriculture.

  • Graniot - Satellite crop monitoring

One third of the water used in Europe goes to the agricultural sector. In Spain, that number rises to almost 80% and a part of it is wasted and/or contaminated by inefficient fertilising practices. Graniot offers a web application for agronomists and farmers to conduct weekly crop monitoring by using European satellite technologies to focus on vigour, chlorophyll, and water stress. With a background in telecommunications engineering, the co-founders are on a mission to bring a more sustainable agriculture to Southern Europe.

  • RVRI - Irrigating the future

Water scarcity and CO2 emissions linked to pumping water are contributing to climate change. RVRI is a system that is able to detect the level of humidity of the soil and crop by analysing in real time the difference between the direct GNSS signal and the GNSS signal reflected on the soil. Copernicus Sentinel-2 imagery is used to show crop information in the mobile app. With this information the system can vary the irrigation rate and communicate with the cloud where the application data is stored. The team wants to create intelligent systems that do not overload farmers with data, but provide actionable insights.

  • Harvesting Prizes - Farming correctly, we all win

Harvesting Prizes is a tool that integrates all Variable Rate Application (VRA) files for every land parcel in a farm. GNSS positioning data is used to localise the user and link all VRA maps. It is then able to translate the input rates into real monetary outcomes, like €/ha and kg CO2/ha. The solution integrates Copernicus Sentinel-2 images, Galileo Open Service Message Authentication Feature (OS-NMA), and cloud services to provide a robust service that is easy to use. Additionally, mobile networks will be used to transfer information to and from the cloud. The young innovators believe that sustainable agriculture practices should be rewarded directly to the farmer.

  • BAOBAB - Bridging agriculture and satellite observations for the African farming business

The Baobab solution combines weather models and Earth observation data to support crop management by farmers. It exploits modern satellite technology to directly deliver timely and accurate weather forecasts to farmers. The data results are integrated into numerical weather prediction (NWP) models and delivered to the farmers for timely and accurate weather forecasts. This allows farmers to take early action and reduce potential damages. The team has the vision to significantly improve farming activities in Uganda.

  • GeoM&E

GeoM&E offers farmers the opportunity to assess differences in agriculture fields over time and location, and enables users to assess vegetation phenology such as planting and harvesting. It specifically looks at the assessment of coffee farms in central Kenya, indicating the changes over time and areas where farmers could increase yield. The GeoM&E would provide African farmers with access to the geoinformation in just one click.

  • HerdsAssist - The herder’s guide and foretell to pasture

HerdsAssist is a new way of grazing management for farmers to lessen the land competition in Africa. Using a mobile application that draws data such as land-use and land-cover maps from Copernicus, farmers can be better informed about the location of their kettle and where other farmlands are. For example, farmers can use a virtual fencing band that uses Galileo satellite positioning to determine the location of animals. The team behind HerdsAssist hopes to create the digital grazing management tool for farmers around the world.

The 3rd edition of the User Consultation Platform (UCP) for the European Space Programme will take place on 1-2 December, ahead of European Space Week 2020. This is a unique opportunity for the rapidly expanding community of space tech users to inform the organisations and institutions that oversee the programme of their experience and requirements, helping to shape the future evolution of the system. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your say – register now.

This year’s UCP will involve two days of extensive exchange at 12 parallel sessions in which users are grouped by market segment 1. These sessions will be an ideal opportunity for business and industry leaders, entrepreneurs, service providers, innovators, and space user communities to express their needs, to share best practices and to present case studies.

One-of-a kind opportunity

The UCP is a one-of-a kind networking opportunity that gives the entire space ecosystem the opportunity to explore new synergies and keep abreast of the latest developments in this fast-paced sector. The Platform’s format allows all the various space stakeholders to share their experiences and expertise and learn from each other, helping them to grow stronger and become more innovative and competitive.

Watch this: Impact the future of EU Space technology, join the User Consultation Platform 2020

At the sessions, the user community will discuss their needs while receiving updates on testing campaigns, main market trends, the evolution of the Galileo and EGNOS systems, and new developments in R&D. New to the 2020 edition of the UCP will be the addition of other Copernicus users and GovSatCom users, which means that the UCP 2020 will be more representative than ever

As the EU Space Programme evolves, so do the needs of their users. Building on the central role of users in shaping EU Space applications, the outcomes of the UCP will help inform the decision-making process around service definition and service provision, leveraging on the unique perspective and experience of the multi-disciplinary EU Space user community.

Wrap-up at EUSW

The results of the UCP will be presented to the entire EU Space community during the plenaries at European Space Week on 7-11 December. The outcomes of the UCP GOVSATCOM session will be presented at a session on Secure Satellite Communications on December 9, while all other segments will present the outcomes of their panel discussions on December 7.

The 3rd edition of the User Consultation Platform (UCP) for the European Space Programme will take place on 1-2 December, ahead of European Space Week 2020. This is a unique opportunity for the rapidly expanding community of space tech users to inform the organisations and institutions that oversee the programme of their experience and requirements, helping to shape the future evolution of the system. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your say – register now.

This year’s UCP will involve two days of extensive exchange at 12 parallel sessions in which users are grouped by market segment 1. These sessions will be an ideal opportunity for business and industry leaders, entrepreneurs, service providers, innovators, and space user communities to express their needs, to share best practices and to present case studies.

One-of-a kind opportunity

The UCP is a one-of-a kind networking opportunity that gives the entire space ecosystem the opportunity to explore new synergies and keep abreast of the latest developments in this fast-paced sector. The Platform’s format allows all the various space stakeholders to share their experiences and expertise and learn from each other, helping them to grow stronger and become more innovative and competitive.

At the sessions, the user community will discuss their needs while receiving updates on testing campaigns, main market trends, the evolution of the Galileo and EGNOS systems, and new developments in R&D. New to the 2020 edition of the UCP will be the addition of other Copernicus users and GovSatCom users, which means that the UCP 2020 will be more representative than ever

As the EU Space Programme evolves, so do the needs of their users. Building on the central role of users in shaping EU Space applications, the outcomes of the UCP will help inform the decision-making process around service definition and service provision, leveraging on the unique perspective and experience of the multi-disciplinary EU Space user community.

Wrap-up at EUSW

The results of the UCP will be presented to the entire EU Space community during the plenaries at European Space Week on 7-11 December. The outcomes of the UCP GOVSATCOM session will be presented at a session on Secure Satellite Communications on December 9, while all other segments will present the outcomes of their panel discussions on December 7. Check out the EU Space Week site for the schedule.

The 3rd edition of the User Consultation Platform (UCP) for the European Space Programme will take place on 1-2 December, ahead of European Space Week 2020. This is a unique opportunity for the rapidly expanding community of space tech users to inform the organisations and institutions that oversee the programme of their experience and requirements, helping to shape the future evolution of the system. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your say – register now.

This year’s UCP will involve two days of extensive exchange at 12 parallel sessions in which users are grouped by market segment 1. These sessions will be an ideal opportunity for business and industry leaders, entrepreneurs, service providers, innovators, and space user communities to express their needs, to share best practices and to present case studies.

One-of-a kind opportunity

The UCP is a one-of-a kind networking opportunity that gives the entire space ecosystem the opportunity to explore new synergies and keep abreast of the latest developments in this fast-paced sector. The Platform’s format allows all the various space stakeholders to share their experiences and expertise and learn from each other, helping them to grow stronger and become more innovative and competitive.

At the sessions, the user community will discuss their needs while receiving updates on testing campaigns, main market trends, the evolution of the Galileo and EGNOS systems, and new developments in R&D. New to the 2020 edition of the UCP will be the addition of other Copernicus users and GovSatCom users, which means that the UCP 2020 will be more representative than ever

As the EU Space Programme evolves, so do the needs of their users. Building on the central role of users in shaping EU Space applications, the outcomes of the UCP will help inform the decision-making process around service definition and service provision, leveraging on the unique perspective and experience of the multi-disciplinary EU Space user community.

Wrap-up at EUSW

The results of the UCP will be presented to the entire EU Space community during the plenaries at European Space Week on 7-11 December. The outcomes of the UCP GOVSATCOM session will be presented at a session on Secure Satellite Communications on December 9, while all other segments will present the outcomes of their panel discussions on December 7. Check out the EU Space Week site for the schedule.

The 3rd edition of the User Consultation Platform (UCP) for the European Space Programme will take place on 1-2 December, ahead of European Space Week 2020. This is a unique opportunity for the rapidly expanding community of space tech users to inform the organisations and institutions that oversee the programme of their experience and requirements, helping to shape the future evolution of the system. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your say – register now.

This year’s UCP will involve two days of extensive exchange at 12 parallel sessions in which users are grouped by market segment 1. These sessions will be an ideal opportunity for business and industry leaders, entrepreneurs, service providers, innovators, and space user communities to express their needs, to share best practices and to present case studies.

One-of-a kind opportunity

The UCP is a one-of-a kind networking opportunity that gives the entire space ecosystem the opportunity to explore new synergies and keep abreast of the latest developments in this fast-paced sector. The Platform’s format allows all the various space stakeholders to share their experiences and expertise and learn from each other, helping them to grow stronger and become more innovative and competitive.

At the sessions, the user community will discuss their needs while receiving updates on testing campaigns, main market trends, the evolution of the Galileo and EGNOS systems, and new developments in R&D. New to the 2020 edition of the UCP will be the addition of other Copernicus users and GovSatCom users, which means that the UCP 2020 will be more representative than ever

As the EU Space Programme evolves, so do the needs of their users. Building on the central role of users in shaping EU Space applications, the outcomes of the UCP will help inform the decision-making process around service definition and service provision, leveraging on the unique perspective and experience of the multi-disciplinary EU Space user community.

Wrap-up at EUSW

The results of the UCP will be presented to the entire EU Space community during the plenaries at European Space Week on 7-11 December. The outcomes of the UCP GOVSATCOM session will be presented at a session on Secure Satellite Communications on December 9, while all other segments will present the outcomes of their panel discussions on December 7. Check out the EU Space Week site for the schedule.

The 3rd edition of the User Consultation Platform (UCP) for the European Space Programme will take place on 1-2 December, ahead of European Space Week 2020. This is a unique opportunity for the rapidly expanding community of space tech users to inform the organisations and institutions that oversee the programme of their experience and requirements, helping to shape the future evolution of the system. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your say – register now.

This year’s UCP will involve two days of extensive exchange at 12 parallel sessions in which users are grouped by market segment 1. These sessions will be an ideal opportunity for business and industry leaders, entrepreneurs, service providers, innovators, and space user communities to express their needs, to share best practices and to present case studies.

One-of-a kind opportunity

The UCP is a one-of-a kind networking opportunity that gives the entire space ecosystem the opportunity to explore new synergies and keep abreast of the latest developments in this fast-paced sector. The Platform’s format allows all the various space stakeholders to share their experiences and expertise and learn from each other, helping them to grow stronger and become more innovative and competitive.

At the sessions, the user community will discuss their needs while receiving updates on testing campaigns, main market trends, the evolution of the Galileo and EGNOS systems, and new developments in R&D. New to the 2020 edition of the UCP will be the addition of other Copernicus users and GovSatCom users, which means that the UCP 2020 will be more representative than ever

As the EU Space Programme evolves, so do the needs of their users. Building on the central role of users in shaping EU Space applications, the outcomes of the UCP will help inform the decision-making process around service definition and service provision, leveraging on the unique perspective and experience of the multi-disciplinary EU Space user community.

Wrap-up at EUSW

The results of the UCP will be presented to the entire EU Space community during the plenaries at European Space Week on 7-11 December. The outcomes of the UCP GOVSATCOM session will be presented at a session on Secure Satellite Communications on December 9, while all other segments will present the outcomes of their panel discussions on December 7. Check out the EU Space Week site for the schedule.

The 3rd edition of the User Consultation Platform (UCP) for the European Space Programme will take place on 1-2 December, ahead of European Space Week 2020. This is a unique opportunity for the rapidly expanding community of space tech users to inform the organisations and institutions that oversee the programme of their experience and requirements, helping to shape the future evolution of the system. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your say – register now.

This year’s UCP will involve two days of extensive exchange at 12 parallel sessions in which users are grouped by market segment 1. These sessions will be an ideal opportunity for business and industry leaders, entrepreneurs, service providers, innovators, and space user communities to express their needs, to share best practices and to present case studies.

One-of-a kind opportunity

The UCP is a one-of-a kind networking opportunity that gives the entire space ecosystem the opportunity to explore new synergies and keep abreast of the latest developments in this fast-paced sector. The Platform’s format allows all the various space stakeholders to share their experiences and expertise and learn from each other, helping them to grow stronger and become more innovative and competitive.

At the sessions, the user community will discuss their needs while receiving updates on testing campaigns, main market trends, the evolution of the Galileo and EGNOS systems, and new developments in R&D. New to the 2020 edition of the UCP will be the addition of other Copernicus users and GovSatCom users, which means that the UCP 2020 will be more representative than ever

As the EU Space Programme evolves, so do the needs of their users. Building on the central role of users in shaping EU Space applications, the outcomes of the UCP will help inform the decision-making process around service definition and service provision, leveraging on the unique perspective and experience of the multi-disciplinary EU Space user community.

Wrap-up at EUSW

The results of the UCP will be presented to the entire EU Space community during the plenaries at European Space Week on 7-11 December. The outcomes of the UCP GOVSATCOM session will be presented at a session on Secure Satellite Communications on December 9, while all other segments will present the outcomes of their panel discussions on December 7. Check out the EU Space Week site for the schedule.

The 3rd edition of the User Consultation Platform (UCP) for the European Space Programme will take place on 1-2 December, ahead of European Space Week 2020. This is a unique opportunity for the rapidly expanding community of space tech users to inform the organisations and institutions that oversee the programme of their experience and requirements, helping to shape the future evolution of the system. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your say – register now.

This year’s UCP will involve two days of extensive exchange at 12 parallel sessions in which users are grouped by market segment 1. These sessions will be an ideal opportunity for business and industry leaders, entrepreneurs, service providers, innovators, and space user communities to express their needs, to share best practices and to present case studies.

One-of-a kind opportunity

The UCP is a one-of-a kind networking opportunity that gives the entire space ecosystem the opportunity to explore new synergies and keep abreast of the latest developments in this fast-paced sector. The Platform’s format allows all the various space stakeholders to share their experiences and expertise and learn from each other, helping them to grow stronger and become more innovative and competitive.

At the sessions, the user community will discuss their needs while receiving updates on testing campaigns, main market trends, the evolution of the Galileo and EGNOS systems, and new developments in R&D. New to the 2020 edition of the UCP will be the addition of other Copernicus users and GovSatCom users, which means that the UCP 2020 will be more representative than ever

As the EU Space Programme evolves, so do the needs of their users. Building on the central role of users in shaping EU Space applications, the outcomes of the UCP will help inform the decision-making process around service definition and service provision, leveraging on the unique perspective and experience of the multi-disciplinary EU Space user community.

Wrap-up at EUSW

The results of the UCP will be presented to the entire EU Space community during the plenaries at European Space Week on 7-11 December. The outcomes of the UCP GOVSATCOM session will be presented at a session on Secure Satellite Communications on December 9, while all other segments will present the outcomes of their panel discussions on December 7. Check out the EU Space Week site for the schedule.

The 3rd edition of the User Consultation Platform (UCP) for the European Space Programme will take place on 1-2 December, ahead of European Space Week 2020. This is a unique opportunity for the rapidly expanding community of space tech users to inform the organisations and institutions that oversee the programme of their experience and requirements, helping to shape the future evolution of the system. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your say – register now.

This year’s UCP will involve two days of extensive exchange at 12 parallel sessions in which users are grouped by market segment 1. These sessions will be an ideal opportunity for business and industry leaders, entrepreneurs, service providers, innovators, and space user communities to express their needs, to share best practices and to present case studies.

One-of-a kind opportunity

The UCP is a one-of-a kind networking opportunity that gives the entire space ecosystem the opportunity to explore new synergies and keep abreast of the latest developments in this fast-paced sector. The Platform’s format allows all the various space stakeholders to share their experiences and expertise and learn from each other, helping them to grow stronger and become more innovative and competitive.

At the sessions, the user community will discuss their needs while receiving updates on testing campaigns, main market trends, the evolution of the Galileo and EGNOS systems, and new developments in R&D. New to the 2020 edition of the UCP will be the addition of other Copernicus users and GovSatCom users, which means that the UCP 2020 will be more representative than ever

As the EU Space Programme evolves, so do the needs of their users. Building on the central role of users in shaping EU Space applications, the outcomes of the UCP will help inform the decision-making process around service definition and service provision, leveraging on the unique perspective and experience of the multi-disciplinary EU Space user community.

Wrap-up at EUSW

The results of the UCP will be presented to the entire EU Space community during the plenaries at European Space Week on 7-11 December. The outcomes of the UCP GOVSATCOM session will be presented at a session on Secure Satellite Communications on December 9, while all other segments will present the outcomes of their panel discussions on December 7.

The User Consultation Platform is a valuable resource, supporting the Agency in this mission and engaging users to ensure that EU Space works for everyone. If you haven’t already registered to take part, do so now. We look forward to meeting with you online in December.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to shape the future of EU Space

The 3rd edition of the User Consultation Platform (UCP) for the European Space Programme will take place on 1-2 December, ahead of European Space Week 2020. This is a unique opportunity for the rapidly expanding community of space tech users to inform the organisations and institutions that oversee the programme of their experience and requirements, helping to shape the future evolution of the system. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your say – register now.

This year’s UCP will involve two days of extensive exchange at 12 parallel sessions in which users are grouped by market segment 1. These sessions will be an ideal opportunity for business and industry leaders, entrepreneurs, service providers, innovators, and space user communities to express their needs, to share best practices and to present case studies.

One-of-a kind opportunity

The UCP is a one-of-a kind networking opportunity that gives the entire space ecosystem the opportunity to explore new synergies and keep abreast of the latest developments in this fast-paced sector. The Platform’s format allows all the various space stakeholders to share their experiences and expertise and learn from each other, helping them to grow stronger and become more innovative and competitive.

At the sessions, the user community will discuss their needs while receiving updates on testing campaigns, main market trends, the evolution of the Galileo and EGNOS systems, and new developments in R&D. New to the 2020 edition of the UCP will be the addition of other Copernicus users and GovSatCom users, which means that the UCP 2020 will be more representative than ever

As the EU Space Programme evolves, so do the needs of their users. Building on the central role of users in shaping EU Space applications, the outcomes of the UCP will help inform the decision-making process around service definition and service provision, leveraging on the unique perspective and experience of the multi-disciplinary EU Space user community.

Wrap-up at EUSW

The results of the UCP will be presented to the entire EU Space community during the plenaries at European Space Week on 7-11 December. The outcomes of the UCP GOVSATCOM session will be presented at a session on Secure Satellite Communications on December 9, while all other segments will present the outcomes of their panel discussions on December 7. Check out the EU Space Week site for the schedule.
