EGNOS NT 2 – EGNOS Navigation Terminals Development and Demonstrations Activity
Vehicle and vessel navigation terminals are heavily based on satellite navigation services and are delivering positioning and navigation functions to the users. Sophisticated terminals are a key element for actually realising the vast potential benefit brought through a reliable positioning and timing service.
The project called EGNOS NT 2 – EGNOS Navigation Terminals Development and Demonstrations Activity is co-funded by the European Space Agency (ESA). It is a continuation of the first phase of EGNOS NT and is aiming at the industrialisation of the terminals demonstrated in Phase 1, as well as extensive demonstrations of the applications in their operational environment.
The consortium comprises Euro Telematik AG, INESC Inovação and TeleConsult Austria.
The main goals of the project are:
- to demonstrate the benefits of EGNOS in a set of professional applications in road transport, forestry and shipping, all requiring an increased quality of positioning information
- to put the participating companies in a position to offer EGNOS-based end customer products as a market-ready solution.
The project started in 2004 and was completed in December 2005.
