Study for a monitoring station for EGNOS to support services in Eastern Europe
Goal of the project
The objective of the study is the automatic reporting of EGNOS performance over Romania as well as the assessment of corrections transmitted by other SBAS.
Short description of the project
Due to its geographical location, Romania is an ideal candidate for system performance monitoring at the border of EGNOS service area. Receivers placed in most parts of Romania will be able to track, in addition to EGNOS, also the Russian Federations System for Differential Corrections and Monitoring (SDCM) and Indias GPS Aided GEO Augmented Navigation system (GAGAN).
The Contractor will implement within ESA regulatory framework and based on ECSS standards, all activities related to: an automatic reporting of EGNOS performance over Romania and Assessment of other SBAS visible from Romania.
The Contractor is requested to deploy a monitoring site network for the EGNOS service and all GNSS systems within Romania and Archive data for remote access by the Agency.
