FP5: Thematic network on GNSS-2
Head of the Project from TSI:

Taking into account forecasted traffic demand the vital role of satellite navigation applications cannot be overestimated in future air navigation system. It is proposed to join the efforts of interested aviation participants such as airline, service provider, research and training entities with respect to the practical evaluation of the GNSS benefits for aviation applications.
Participants are to validate and confirm the GNSS effectiveness level as a sole navigation mean for all phases of flight up to the CAT I precision approach (first 2 years of the Program) and up to the CAT II, CAT III precision approaches along with the D-GNSS based ASMGCS (rest part of the Program).
It is proposed to carry out Trials program in order to validate a number of GNSS applications.
It is supposed that the trials will cover practical validation of concerned parameter values (as integrity, accuracy, availability and continuity) for different phases of flights.
Installation of differential corrections ground station in Riga International Airport will allow to form the GBAS-function up and validate precision D-GNSS approaches as well.
