ESSP and ENAC partner to promote Satellite NavigationMarch 08, 2021
On the 18th of February 2021, ENAC, the French Civil Aviation University, acknowledged as one of the major training organizations in the aeronautics and air transport field in Europe, and ESSP, European Satellite Service Provider, the European SBAS operator and service provider (EGNOS), consolidated their cooperation by signing a partnership agreement with the objective to make the promotion of European Global Navigation Satellite System (EGNSS) in general, and EGNOS in particular
Satellite navigation services prevail more influential than ever during the COVID crisisJuly 28, 2020
Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) such as Galileo or GPS are made up of 24 to 30 satellites orbiting in medium Earth orbit (regularly at around 20,000 km altitude) on three orbital spheres. Thanks to very precise onboard clocks, each satellite delivers timing information that is used by receivers on the ground to calculate positioning information worldwide. As individual car drivers, we are accustomed to being guided on our car journeys, but this positioning information is also used for mobility in the broadest sense, whatever the means of transportation, to help position and navigate on our trips.
ESSP is attending this year again the “Munich Satellite Navigation Summit”.March 26, 2019
Munich Satellite Navigation Summit is a two-day international conference, the perfect occasion to have an updated status of the various GNSS (GPS, Beidou, Glonass, Navic [India], QZSS [Japan] and Galileo of course) and SBAS systems in the world (WAAS, EGNOS, GAGAN, SDCM and MSAS [Japan]), and to meet with the European GNSS community.
