Launched satellite enhances European maritime navigation

Europe’s Global Navigation Satellite Services (GNSS) will be enhanced after the successful launch of a Eutelsat satellite from Russia.

Eutelsat-5 West B satellite hosts a payload from the European GNSS Agency (GSA) to improve ship positioning, which is used for electronic navigation and other bridge systems, around Europe.

This Northrop Grumman-manufactured satellite, also known as GEO-3, is in a geostationary orbit and will augment existing vessel positioning services.

It is part of the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay System (EGNOS) that hones the accuracy of satellite navigation signals over Europe for maritime and other sectors.

GEO-3 was designed to augment GNSS signals from other services, such as GPS, Glonass and Galileo.

This will mitigate the potential for errors and provide redundancy in ship positioning, navigation services, and dynamic positioning. It will deliver an addition to GPS, which is vulnerable to jamming and spoofing as encountered in the Eastern Mediterranean, Black Sea, and the Middle East in recent years.

GEO-3 is one of the next-generation GNSS payloads and supports EGNOS’s path to introducing more services on multiple constellations of satellites.

EGNOS operational messages are broadcast via navigation payloads on board two existing geostationary satellites, including an Inmarsat-3F2 satellite.
