EUTELSAT KPI

 

Acronym : EUTELSAT KPI

Name : EQUIPMENT ACQUISITION FOR PROJECT EGNOS KPI

Topic : Development of measurement systems and metrics of SBAS EGNOS GEO3 signals for the next 15 years.

Need

EUTELSAT has been mandated by GSA to provide the next-generation European position improvement service (SBAS) EGNOS GEO-3 for the next 15 years.

Description of the project

M3 Systems must develop a system of measurements and metrics of GNSS signals:  C1 amount, C5 signal  transmitted to the satellite fulfilling this function, and L1, L5 returned by the satellite.

Our participation

EUTELSAT has selected M3 Systems, the only company nowadays, able to monitore these signals in real time, and associating metrics with them, by implementing them on National Instruments platform. It is a project involving the 3 historic teams of M3 Systems: Radio-Navigation, Test & Measurement, Receivers and embedded systems.

The results obtained

The system is being validated at the time of writing. The equipment will be hosted on two separate sites to ensure redundant monitoring.
