The Skyopener project has tested and shown the benefits of multi-frequency GNSS and EGNOS in RPAS.
The project, co-financed by the European GNSS Agency, has revealed gains in terms of availability, accuracy and robustness.
Those behind the project say it aims to pave the way towards increased use of RPAS in civil applications.
The project is working on developing operational processes that aim to reduce all categories of risks associated with RPAS and allow an ANSP to manage very low level RPAS operations.
Marc Pollina, CEO of Skyopener consortium member M3 systems, commented: “Systems that enable RPAS to fly safely, in compliance with regulations, will enable market access and significantly reduce the cost of insurance premiums for RPAS operators, making a wide range of RPAS applications more commercially attractive and widely used.”
