Egnos navigation satellites start public services

Posted on Friday, October 02 2009 @ 18:44:48 CEST by


EE Times reports the European Union has opened its Egnos navigation augmentation system for public use. After a software update GPS receivers will be able to use Egnos satellites to enhance the exactness of existing GPS signals within Western Europe. Egnos is the forerunner to Galileo, the European alternative to the U.S. GPS and the Russian GLONASS.
The EGNOS signals can be received by GPS receivers equipped with a specific software. In combination with Egnos signals, the accuracy of GPS navigation can be improved significantly; according to ESA, users can navigate with an accuracy of about 2 meters as opposed to GPS alone which provides an accuracy of 10 meters. The improved accuracy could trigger a wealth of novel navigation applications from aviation to agriculture and traffic management, observers believe.
