Developing enabling technologies to allow for a leap of professionale GNSS applications over three use case scenarios
U

The FANTASTIC solution aims to be a key component in professional positioning and timing applications. Based on an innovative “field aware” antenna technology combined with a multi-frequency receiver, leveraging on Galileo-specific features, such as the Commercial Service, pilot channels and frequency diversity, it will substantially broaden the scope of professional GNSS applications, making them work in harsher conditions, where they can’t today.

Commercial Service based Precise Positioning

Innovations introduced in this project will be based on the processing of the Galileo E6 Commercial Service, that with its enhanced navigation message is expected to improve current PPP performance

Construction Machines and Tractors Control

Machine control for construction and agriculture: improvement of RTK availability and reliability will be demonstrated, mainly in harsh environment, where the received signal might be corrupted

Trusted GNSS Based Timing for Infrastructures

A first step towards secure commercial products will be made by implementing time authentication as well as spoofing detection and mitigation algorithms based on the Galileo authenticated signals

Commercial Service based Precise Positioning

Precise Point Positioning is the preferred positioning technique in many applications such as precision agriculture, off-shore and scientific applications, in particular at remote locations. Fantastic will develop the technology for the optimal exploitation of the PPP data provided by the Galileo High Accuracy Service, overtaking, in particular, the availability limitations of the current commercial services based on geostationary satellites.

Tractors and Construction Machines Control

Phase based positioning is a critical technology for controlling and monitoring machines in large construction projects and precise agriculture. Given the scale of the works and machines, reliability and availability of positioning is extremely important. The techniques developed in the project rely on a specific antenna design and Galileo signal peculiarity; they will enhance suitability of GNSS as high-precision positioning sensor.

Trusted GNSS Based Timing for Infrastructures

Timing is critical in many types of infrastructure such as telecommunication networks, electrical power distribution, financial transactions and transportations. GPS is currently used for precise absolute timing, but it lacks of security being the civil signal sensitive to spoofing attacks. Galileo will offer the solution with the Navigation Message Authentication and the Spreading Code Encryption planned for different signals.
