EUSPA launch EGNOS call for proposals
22 June 2021: EUSPA was created on 12 May 2021, expanding on the scope of the former European GNSS Agency (GSA) in charge of the operations, service provision and security of EGNOS (European Satellite Based Augmentation System) and Galileo, the European GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System).
The objective of the call is to foster EGNOS uptake in the European transport, including aviation. The budget for the Call is €3,000,000 with the possibility to extend to €10,000,000 depending on budget availability. The deadline for submissions is 19 July 2021.
In the aviation sector, implementation actions will include approaches benefitting from Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance 200 (LPV200) service level, PinS LPV and low-level Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) routes in Europe, as well as other advanced operations using SBAS or other operations that help aviation to become more sustainable.
It will also consider pilot cases on advanced navigation operations benefitting from EGNOS, assessment of new operational scenarios, such as implementation in aerodromes with limited infrastructure and activities promoting the use of EGNOS for other communication and surveillance applications in all phases of flight. The result of this activity will be a wide scale operational implementation of EGNOS-based operations across European airports and airspace users.
