The EEGS2 project is aimed to demonstrate the benefits of EGNOS, EDAS and Galileo through applications in the Eastern countries of Europe. The project has the following three objectives:
- To demonstrate through flight trials, the benefits of EGNOS in areas of Eastern Europe where EGNOS is not available.
- To study the impact of the SBAS technology in transport management
- To promote EDAS, EGNOS and Galileo
The first objective will be demonstrated through the deployment of avionics on board capable of reading the magicSBAS message from RF, the definition of flight procedures and the analysis of the performances in real flights in four eastern countries.
Demonstrations on Electronic Fee Collection, Pay as you Drive and Transport Technology Information applications will be undertaken in Ukraine.
The Eastern countries will have from the EEGS2 project a real EGNOS experience. They will be able to understand the performances, benefits and limitations of EGNOS and they will be totally prepared for the extension of ENGOS to the Eastern countries in the coming future.
