The BroadGNSS project will take the first procurement steps exploit the distinguishing features of EGNOS and Galileo Signals and operational advantages in downstream public safety applications, to improve the services of Public Safety and Disaster relief organisation’s (PPDR’s) to Europe’s citizens. The primary goal of this project is: Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) of innovation activity to develop Deployed Applications and Monitoring of Critical Mobile Broadband Communication Infrastructure and Assets for PPDR.
This project implements a Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) with the purpose to realise innovative solutions for a number of application areas to fulfil capability needs regarding the accuracy, reliability, assurance and cost of positioning systems. This project establishes a group of buyers for the relevant EGNSS applications, creating EGNSS-enabled applications in support of public authorities with the aim to establish sustainable supply chains for delivery of those downstream EGNSS applications to public authorities. The project will make use of its procurement budget to remove supplier lock-in and obtain more open, standardized and better “value for money” solutions, increasing in quality, and decrease in prices, of EGNSS products and services. The project will seek to exploit IPRs and R&D results resulting from previous H2020 and other R&D programmes.
