EGNOS in Africa presentation 24.05.2012

  1. 1. and Africa Brussels, 24th May 2012
  2. 2. Outline• Introduction: EGNOS and Galileo• EGNOS in Africa: technical rationale• Advantages of precise satellite navigation in Africa• The policy context• Overall implementation plan •Previous achievements •Current activities •The way forward• Conclusions and discussion
  3. 3. 25 May, 2012 Europe’s contribution to satellite navigation consists of two systems Autonomous infrastructure • Performances similar to GPS • Global coverage • 5 services • European Geostationary Navigation Overlay System • Satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) • Improves GPS performance: integrity and accuracy • European coverage • 3 services3 The European GNSS Programmes GPS: Global Positioning System
  4. 4. 25 May, 2012 EGNOS improves GPS over Europe 1 3 geostationary EGNOS satellites: relay error corrections to users GALILEO, GPS and GLONASS satellite 5 constellation4 EGNOS position accuracy 2 GPS position accuracyNavigation Land EarthStations (NLES):uplink error corrections to Ranging and IntegrityEGNOS satellites Monitoring Stations (RIMS): receive GPS data and send it to MCC 3 Mission Control Centres (MCC): process GPS data to determine errors

  7. 7. Advantages of precise satellite navigation in Africa •Transports •Aviation •Rail •Inland waterways and maritime Applications •Tracking and tracing •Land management •Cadastre and cartography •Agriculture •Energy and mining industry Expected socio- •Cost-benefit analysis (CBA)economic benefits •Potential for regional integration
  8. 8. Aviation 25 May, 2012Benefits for passengers, airports, airlines and the environment Use Impact Safer Instrumental vertical landing, guidance, reduces accident probability fewer accidents Route optimisation with Fuels savings, the use of ADS-B CO2 emissions (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) reduction Phasing out of current Costs ground-based equipment reduction for for aid to navigation airports Reduction of Less delays, decision height diversions and during landing cancellations
  9. 9. Rail Current situation EGNOS benefits • Railway network: is poor, mostly on single line and with low traffic • Extremely high costs of classical • Satellite-based positioning can safety equipment elude the necessity of balises along the line • Strong costs savings on: • track control, signalling • Ground-based equipment, maintenance, control systems investments (balise) are • Socio-economic benefits: expensive and • potential expansion of normally not the rail network economically advantageous for • Safety, availability, low traffic railways capacity and reliability25 May, 2012 9

Rivers and inland waterwaysEGNOS precise positioning increases safety and navigability as compared to radar and visual positioning,Radar Position Accuracy EGNOS Position Accuracy Position variable by Same accuracy as with • Speed DGPS sensors but without • Distance the need for local ground infrastructures • Weather (rain, waves,..)

  12. 12. Other maritime applications Port approach and coastal navigation •Savings on investments at the local level (substitute to ground DGPS stations) •Increased safety •Opening-up of previously ill-equipped small ports •Commercial and recreational vessels.

  13. 13. Tracking and tracing Multimodal and container transport • Low cost services for freight applications • Container tracking in Inland Container Depots Case study: METIS project (EUROMED I) • Multimodal transport: road-sea-road • From Italy to Morocco via Algeria and Tunisia Dar Es Salaam portTin Can Island port (Nigeria) – Photo courtesy OTAL
  14. 14. Land management Cadastre •High accuracy, free of charge •Particularly useful for rural parcels measurements •Supports land reform programmes and helps solving land disputes Cartography •High accuracy, low-cost service •Hydrographical survey •Cartography and geographic data collectionCourtesy: South African National Geo-Spatial Information (NGI)
  15. 15. Precision Agriculture Use: •Efficient irrigation and water management •Precise spraying for better use of pesticides and fertilizers Impact: •Reduces environmental impact •Increased agriculture productivity and cost savings to the farmers •Contributes to food securityA deep tillage rig set up for variable rate P & K in South AfricaPhoto courtesy agleader
