European Global Navigation Satellite Systems (EGNSS) for Drone Operations

Drones are a novel and very quickly emerging technology with a vast array of applications. As such, drones will grow to outstrip any other user base in the aviation market. GNSS is essential for the safe and reliable navigation of drones, and GNSS receivers are implemented on almost all new commercial drones as a standard feature. With increasing demand for BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) operations, GNSS (possibly with various augmentations) is the most obvious choice of technology for navigation, although it is not the only one. European GNSS (EGNSS)- EGNOS (European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service) and Galileo, provide significant added value to drone navigation, positioning and related applications, with respect to other systems.
