GNSS based navigation

GMV has more than 20 years of experience in supporting AENA in the implementation of air operations based on GNSS and its augmentations (RAIM, SBAS, GBAS) by:

  • Deploying a network of GNSS receivers and GNSS interference detectors (the latter developed by GMV) in key airports to monitor the GNSS navigation service.
  • Equipping an experimentation aircraft with a state-of-the-art onboard system (developed by GMV) able to carry out RNP APCH (all minima) and PA (GBAS) procedures flight validation as well as GNSS interference detection.

Moreover, GMV was selected by Eurocontrol to design and develop the European GNSS prediction and NOTAM service, and GMV is also currently supporting the European Satellite Service Provider (ESSP) in the maintenance of the operational EGNOS-related service.

Complementing its expertise in GNSS-based navigation, GMV was selected also by Eurocontrol to maintain and evolve DEMETER (DME tracer), a reference tool in Europe to assess VOR and DME infrastructure.

This experience, together with the key involvement of GMV in the development of the current and future GNSS systems (e.g. Galileo) and augmentations (e.g. EGNOS, ARAIM), make GMV a reliable and far sighted supplier for the operational implementation of PBN applications.

Finally, GMV has capitalized this broad experience with the development of a suite of products to support ANPS in GNSS navigation service monitoring (magicGEMINI), GNSS interference detection (srx-10i) and APV SBAS flight trials (magicLPV) in any region of the world using our operational SBAS testbed (magicSBAS).
