EGNOS High Accuracy study launched
The EC, supportd by the GSA, has instigated the EGNOS High Accuracy (EGNOSHA) study.
The EGNOSHA project is to determine under what conditions it would be beneficial to implement an EGNOS high accuracy service in 2020-35. The study is fully financed by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 framework programme for 'Research and Innovation'.
Spanish company GMV, with support from ALPHA Consult of Italy, will carry out the study under the technical supervision of the European GNSS Agency (GSA). Users to be consulted will include, amongst others, those from the road, mapping, surveying and offshore sectors.
The GSA explains that the 'High Accuracy' service could provide centimetre-level accuracy, a fast convergence time and timely warnings should integrity be lost. This study will identify user requirements, determine service provision requirements and assess how this service could complement the Galileo 'Commercial Service' (CS). GNSS users will be consulted to consolidate and validate user and service requirements for high accuracy.
The outcome of the study will be available by late 2019 and should contribute to the definition of the potential evolution of the EGNOS mission. EGNOS V3 is to be introduced from 2023 - see details at 'Previous News' below.
