  • AGES, Accelerometry for Galileo Enhancement and Science

    Start date: 01/03/2020
    Duration: 15 Months

    Activity Code: H2020-038.02

    Category: Galileo

    Theme: Payload

    In the frame of the Call for Ideas “H2020-ESA-038 GNSS Evolutions Experimental Payloads and Science Activities”, an accelerometer devoted to measure the Non Gravitational Perturbations has been identified as one of the candidate experimental payloads of 2nd generation Galileo S/C. Such an accelerometer is intended to provide operational benefits to the system and to foster its scientific…

  • GASTON: GAlileo Survey of Transient Objects Network

    Start date: 01/04/2020
    Duration: 12 Months

    Activity Code: H2020-038.10

    Category: Galileo

    Theme: European GNSS Scientific Studies

    In the frame of the Call for Ideas “H2020-ESA-038 GNSS Evolutions Experimental Payloads and Science Activities”, this activity aims at discovering and detecting dark matter using Galileo. It will monitor the highly precise synchronised clocks of the Galileo constellation and analysing glitches and transients which might be correlated with Dark Matter movement or crossings. The project…

  • G2G TEST USER RECEIVER TECHNOLOGIES FRAMEWORK - WO2: OPEN SERVICE BREAD-BOARD EMULATING PROFESSIONAL PLATFORMS

    Start date: 29/04/2020
    Duration: 38 Months

    Activity Code: H2020-008.02

    Category: Technology

    This activity targets the design, implementation, integration and test of a Bread Board (BB) emulating current and future performances of a number of positioning mid-end/high-end platforms (where robust high-accuracy is a driving factor) relying on Galileo 2nd Generation OS SIS, multi-constellation, multi-frequency and sensor hybridisation/fusion. In particular, the BB focuses on the Autonomous…
