ATR close to the EDG2E
ATR is more than close to the EDG²E and this is good news! We’re actually a key player in the European project focused on the development of a dual-frequency, multi-constellation receiver for enhanced navigation.
EDG2E stands for Equipment for Dual frequency Galileo, the European satellite navigation system deployed since 2016, GPS and EGNOS. EGNOS stands for European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service. But what do these acronyms mean for navigation, regional aviation and ATR?
As of 31 July 2019, more than 800 million mobile phones benefit from the European Galileo positioning system!
ATR in the front line
EDG2E is a project managed by Thales, as part of a consortium that also benefits from the skills of major European industry and aviation players. The performance of the prototype receiver will be evaluated during a flight test campaign which we will be leading, using one of our test aircraft.
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) has set up a website listing all the compatible applications and equipment. A practical test to find out whether your favourite mobile phone or tablet is compatible! More information at usegalileo.eu.
