Launched by the European GNSS Supervisory Authority  on behalf of the European Commission the official EGNOS Portal   has been launched. This portal is  the one-stop point of access information resource and forum for all those developing and using satellite navigation equipment and applications and aiming to benefit from the enhanced precision and other features of the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) Europe’s satellite-based augmentation system.

It is designed to help developers and entrepreneurs vying for a slice of the emerging satellite navigation market. Whether creating the latest location-based application or software to track valuable goods on the road users can dig into this rich online source for up-to-date news information and solutions.

The GSA Community agency developed the Portal. Gian Gherardo Calini Head of Market Development at the GSA notes:

“Application developers and users are encouraged to post information share ideas and ask questions via this channel”.  “We will make sure that every relevant question will be answered and every relevant comment will be used in improving the EGNOS Portal and in developing the EGNOS programme. We also have a directory of organisations involved in EGNOS and we encourage you to register your organisation.”
