EGNSS – Closing the gaps in mature, regulated and long lead markets

< Back

Open Call Reference: HORIZON-EUSPA-2023-SPACE-01-42

Standardization and certification for the use of GNSS in regulated markets is a costly and time-consuming process. The topic aims to gaps in mature, regulated and long lead markets and deliver concrete pathways to standardization and certification towards broader EGNSS adoption.


-Closing the related standardization and certification gaps for rail safety critical applications that support the rail network efficiency and cost reduction, converging towards a pan-European EGNSS-based solution adoption, within the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) evolution or adoption within railway lines that do not require a full interoperability with ERTMS.
-EGNSS-supported safe and efficient operations in coastal areas, maritime (including for energy production e.g. off-shore wind farms), inland waterways, fisheries and aquaculture
-Addressing potential standardization and certification bottlenecks for the use of EGNSS for road and automotive market safety-related applications in scenarios of potential harm to humans or damage to a system/environment
-Applications for the aviation market that require further consolidation include aircraft operations and planning for more efficient and green operations supported by EGNSS and its differentiators


-Broaden the reach of EGNSS, by supporting its adoption in mature, regulated long lead markets, including rail, maritime inland waterways, fisheries and aquaculture, road and automotive, aviation
-Development of industry-accepted certification and standardization schemes that exploit the use of EGNSS and its differentiators for operational services.
