Method and System for Real-time Navigation using satellite-transmitted three-carrier radio signals and ionospheric corrections
|367 - Abstract:|
|The European Space Agency (ESA) developed a new satellite positioning system. Advantages over conventional technologies include very high precise positioning, typically within one decimeter, updating information in real time, using satellite transmitted three-carrier radio signals. Navigation (position, velocity and time) and positioning are therefore more accurate. ESA looks for an industrial partner to exploit this technology using licensing agreements.|
Description of the offer:
The offered technology has been developed by an organization with excellent knowledge of navigation systems. This technology uses the “single epoch” approach, which allows instant and precise navigation (positioning, velocity and time) of stationary or moving objects. The object can by any land, sea or air vehicle equipped with a satellite navigation receiver. Furthermore, this technology comprises a system for making real-time corrections based on an ionospheric model and generated by static reference stations. These features allow the system to be more efficient compared to existing products based on the dual frequency approach.
Innovations and advantages of the offer:
- Small calculation effort necessary for the user navigation receiver
- High precision (<10cm) for distances around several hundreds of kilometers or more, from the reference station
- Strong compatibility with the European Reference Station Network for Satellite Navigation (EGNOS GNSS)
Domain of Application:
This invention has been developed for any land, sea or air user equipped with a satellite navigation receiver, requiring high positioning precision. Main applications are surveying and transport (land, air, sea). It can also be used for everyday life (GPS/Galileo/COMPAS/GLONASS) or for specific applications in areas such as health-related sectors or communications.
