The project will develop a list of key features to enable a higher penetration of Galileo compatible receivers on the market, and especially the ASIC developed under Himalaya project. First of all it will develop a high accuracy technology made available even in bad reception conditions, thanks to a robust aided PLL processing tuned for the Galileo pilot channels. It will also address a smart integrity function taking into account the local effects, through an ultra-tight coupling with inertial sensors approach. It also addresses improved performances thanks to an extensive improvement of telecommunication assistance dissemination. In particular, a robust anti spoofing function is also developed, prototyped and demonstrated.
The project will have several impacts:
Finally, the project will develop an indoor technology that is today seen as a very promising one, blending GNSS measurements and LTE ones.
