UK Sovereign Satellite Navigation Overlay Successfully Demonstrated

Viasat $VSAT has demonstrated a United Kingdom satellite-based augmentation system for the first time to show what accurate GPS data can do to maximize safety and efficiency, the company said.  The test flight, flown from Cranfield Airport using the National Flying Laboratory Centre’s Saab 340B aircraft, showcased a UK-based SBAS that delivers more precise, reliable navigation data.

The UK is no longer part of the EU’s European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS), following its exit from the European Union. While EGNOS can still be used for non-safety applications in the UK, the trial aims to provide a first step toward a complementary UK SBAS.
