ERTMS on SATELLITE – Enabling Application Validation
The uptake of EGNSS, EGNOS and Galileo, by the rail sector is a priority. The main objective of ERSAT is to verify the suitability of EGNSS as the enabler of cost-efficient and economically sustainable signaling solutions for railway safety applications. This will foster the competitivity and the innovation of the European rail industries.
The solution will fully exploit all the advantages of the multi-constellation approach and of EGNOS and Galileo services, providing an optimized augmentation service to the trains, in order to meet railway requirements.
