GNSS Data Service Expert - (F/M)

Responsible for the EDAS (EGNOS Data Access Service) services provision including the daily operation and maintenance and the evolution of the EDAS system and services.

What is EDAS?

EDAS is one of the three services provided by EGNOS, the Europe's regional satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS).. EDAS is the single point of access for the data collected and generated by the EGNOS ground infrastructure - mainly Ranging and Integrity Monitoring Stations (RIMS) and Navigation Land Earth Stations (NLES) - distributed over Europe and North Africa.

Geared towards users requiring enhanced performance for professional use, EDAS provides these with the same data that is broadcast by the EGNOS satellites in real-time through Internet. In this way, EDAS delivers data to users who cannot always view the EGNOS GEO satellites (such as those in urban canyons) or to support a variety of other value added services, applications and research programmes
