An EGNOS High Accuracy (HA) service has the potential to provide users with centimetre level accuracy, a fast convergence time and timely warning of any compromise to the integrity of the positioning service. To better understand user needs for such a service, the European Commission, Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROWTH), has published an Invitation to Tender (ITT). The objective of the ITT is to determine under what condition(s) it would be beneficial to implement an EGNOS HA service within the 2020-2035 timeframe.
The analysis is to focus on identifying user requirements and on the EGNOS service provision, bearing in mind the foreseen availability of a Galileo Commercial Service. The ITT does not cover the technical implementation of the service at the system level.
The sutdy will be fully financed by the European Commission under Horizon 2020.
Estimated total value (excluding VAT): 400 000.00 EUR
Time limit for receipt of tenders or requests to participate: 3 October 2017
