Egnos Enabled Label

04/13/2015 | Aerospace: Certifying EGNOS

The EGNOS Enabled label guarantees that products use EGNOS (European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service) in their positioning and timing services. This assures business partners and users that EGNOS Open Service features are implemented. The label can be obtained by manufacturers of receivers and of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) enabled devices.

The certification procedure is based on a technical verification process. Specific tests on the product and its reactions to adverse or demanding conditions will prove that it uses the information provided by EGNOS.

Based on the tests, five different levels are assigned for start-up time, accuracy and robustness. Once the label is granted, it can be communicated to the final consumers through a specific sticker on the product’s packaging.

ALTER TECHNOLOGY is the first certification body to provide such service.
