1 EGNOS: a satellite navigation system for Europe, and an opportunity for Africa! Michel Bosco Head, Galileo and EGNOS Applications and International Cooperation European Commission

2 2 Support Facilities 6 Navigation Land Earth Stations GPS signals (in the future: GALILEO signals) Users & Service Providers 34 Ranging & Integrity Monitoring Stations (RIMS) 3 GEO Satellites 4 Mission Control Centres EGNOS System Architecture EGNOS is an SBAS that augments the signal of satellite positioning systems e.g. GPS, GALILEO, GLONASS

3 INMARSAT AOR-E (15.5°W), ARTEMIS (21.3°E), INMARSAT IOR-W (25°E) EGNOS Service Area EGNOS Satellite Footprints EGNOS Service Area EGNOS is delivering a free open service over Europe since October 2009. It will deliver its services for at least > 20 years EGNOS satellites footprint cover also Africa.

5 Technical feasibility and users interest Temporary EGNOS reference stations installed in several African countries: Chad, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Zambia, Namibia and South Africa; flight testing took place during a East-to- West flight from Dakar to Mombasa on 19-20 May 2005 A demonstration of the use of EGNOS for advanced rail traffic management, on low-density rail lines, Gauteng, South Africa 2005

6 Allows for IFR-like operation in non ILS-equipped airports Increase in airports capacity Increase in safety Increase in flight capability (e.g. helicopters) Expensive land based navaids can be avoided Enables their long term decommissioning => lower terminal charges General operational benefits Reduction in angle of approach (direct and curved) Better lateral guidance EGNOS enables a reduction in the decision height EGNOS benefits in aviation

7 Impact on Economic development and integration 37 % from Africa is 250km from an ILS equipped airport 87 % from Africa is 250km from a main or regional airport EGNOS potential

8 Use of EGNOS for land management Hydrographic survey Crustal deformation monitoring Landslides, flooding, volcanic crustal dynamics, etc Improvement of National Geodetic Network Cartography, cadastre and GIS data collection Update of regional technical map, standardised cadastral surveying, georeferencing orthoimages satellite images, etc. Structure monitoring Bridges, dams, buildings Civil Engineering Support to meteorological analysis and forecasts

9 EGNOS benefits in Africa Economic opening-up of isolated regions, reduction of access costs to regional centres Improving transport infrastructure at once by making regional airports accessible to nationally and internationally Reducing maintenance costs, safety and security of railways Improving dramatically air and maritime transport safety Impacting positively agriculture, mining, energy, and land management Reduction of costs, increased safety and greater reactivity for humanitarian interventions Building African capacity at managing large projects Establishing pan-African infrastructure Training of African users and operators Reinforcement of African academic institutions

10 Results of a Cost-benefits analysis The use of SABS for Africa can bring benefits for various economic sectors Total benefits surpass 500m over the 2012-2042 (30 years) period 311 Millions of Euro Total discounted net benefits (Discount rate of 8%) ~ 520m

11 Programme implementation steps 1.Preliminary studies 2.Cost Benefit Analysis 3.Programming (implementation and management plan) 4.Governance scheme 5.Political support 6.Funding 7.Detailed system design 8.Deployment of EGNOS across Africa 9.Service provision and operation … - 2009 2010 2011 2012 Main issues being tackled with the African Union Commission: 1.Rationale and benefits 2.Technical alternatives 3.Liability policy 4.Certification policy 5.Industrial issues 6.Training needs and capacity building 7.Exploitation 8.Costs 9.Governance structure 10.Funding options 11.Project management structure
