EGNOS for „safety of life“ applications


Blog Summary Widget

EGNOS/GNSS-OPS is a research project concerning the testing of the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) for RNAV approach usages. The EGNOS based „safety of life (SoL)“ signal was made available by the ESSP (European Satellite Services Provider) starting January 2011. In cooperation with the Austrian civil aviation authority we will conduct several EGNOS RNAV trials using our Falco F8L as flying test bed. The primary goal is to gather in-flight experience and log empirical data about EGNOS for RNAV approach purposes.

In this blog we will cover the progress of this research project.
