Spaceopal, innovation in the GNSS sector

By GeoConnexion - 14th January 2021 - 11:45

Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) systems and technologies are constantly and rapidly evolving. For this reason, Spaceopal, an equal-share joint venture between Telespazio and DLR Gesellschaft für Raumfahrtanwendungen (GFR) mbH and the prime contractor for the operational services of Galileo, the satellite navigation program of the European Union, has developed an engineering framework capable of proactively managing such evolution, declining it as a concrete path of “innovation”. On the basis of this paradigm, which guides its commitment in the provision of the Galileo Services, Spaceopal, together with its shareholders, has created a true technological laboratory dedicated to GNSS innovation, research and development. Innovative services, such as NAVCAST paired with IONOLAB, designed and developed to increase the accuracy of the Galileo and GPS GNSS systems (and also of Glonass and Beidou at a later stage), were initiated within this context.
