  • GNSS Reference Station Environment Monitoring Unit

    Start date: 29/07/2019
    Duration: 16 Months

    Activity Code: H2020-015.04

    Category: Technology

    Theme: User Technology

    The RF environment in which GNSS Sensor Stations (EGNOS and Galileo) operate is dynamic and increasingly harsh due to co-existence with other RF systems. Frequenty, the operational environment specifications against which the design has been verified are not sufficiently representative of the actual environment that the equipment will face once deployed due to its complexity. Multiple…
