everis aerospace defense and security will be leading a consortium of organisations to develop the H2020 Galileo programme.
Specifically the GAUSS project, alongside Cranfield University, Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial and the university of Seville as well as Rina Consulting, Aratos Systems, and Satways.
The aim of the GAUSS project would be to improve the performance of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’S) and most importantly improving positioning, trajectory optimisation, traffic control and security via Galileo.
The project with the help of EGNOS (European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service) ultimately aims improve flight safety, navigation and trajectory performance, enabling a variety of UAVs i.e. (drones) of different sizes and categories to share the same airspace segment without safety or security risks.
Both Galileo, the European navigation satellite system, and EGNOS will provide services that will make it possible to optimize satellite-based navigation. The project will last for three years and fits in with regulatory frameworks and guidelines defined by EASA (European Aviation Security Agency).
