Presentation with English commentary about EGNOS, a revolutionary new navigation system, which will guide vehicles using satellite navigation. EGNOS is a joint ESA - European Commission and Eurocontrol project. EGNOS recieves signal from military GPS satellites and, using specialised hardware, adds a correction factor and surveys their reliability. The signal are then beamed back into space, and distributed by a system of 3 civilian satellites. In this way, high-quality navigation tracking information is made available to all vehicles fitted with ENOS-receiving equipment.
