GMV hosts EUROCAE’s WG62 meeting

From 27 November to 1 December GMV hosted the latest meeting of Working Group 62 of the European aviation-standardization organization (EUROCAE), currently working on standardization of Galileo and dual frequency and multi constellation SBAS.

EUROCAE (European Organization for Civil Aviation Equipment) is a non-profit organization set up in Switzerland in 1963 to create standards for avionics electronics. Its members come from international aeronautics authorities, aircraft manufacturers, air-security service providers, airlines, airport operators and other stakeholders. The organization acts as the overarching framework in which several aeronautics working groups swap notes on the development of standards. 


For a week GMV hosted of the WG62 meeting, a group it belongs to. It was created to draw up standards for next-generation receivers of the Global Navigation Satellite System GNSS. These new receivers will be able to process the signals of all the following: Galileo, Europe’s worldwide satellite navigation system; the constellation of the global positioning system (GPS), as well as the key of the augmentation system, the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) or any other available satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS).

These working meetings helped to flesh out the ARAIM concept (Advanced Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring) while also working towards standardization of dual frequency and multi constellation SBAS for aviation.

To conclude the encounter GMV offered the 40 attendees a run-through of the company’s activities, especially in the space sector, courtesy of Pedro J. Schoch, Corporate Development Manager, and Miguel Ángel Molina, Executive Director or GMV’s Programs and Business Development Manager, Aerospace.
