The ENAC (Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile) course "GNSS: Principles, Augmentations and Evolutions of EGNOS" will be held at the ENAC Administrative Head Office in Toulouse, France on May 12 – 23, 2014.

Registration is now open.

The two-week course will first introduce the basic GNSS principles and the recent GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and Beidou evolutions. It will then address the needs of Civil Aviation when it comes to satellite navigation and the augmentation requirements (ABAS, SBAS, GBAS) with a special focus on EGNOS, the European SBAS initiative. RNAV and PBN concept will also be addressed.

The theoretical input will be illustrated by simulation tools located at ENAC, and industrial visits.

The course is designed for staff working in any area of CNS/ATM, to whom an overview of current and future development of the NAV/Atm system might be beneficial. Topics covered include:

1. GNSS : Concept and strategy
Reminder on Navaids and basic strategy in Navigation Services

  • GPS System Description
  • GPS Architecture and Technique
  • Differential techniques: DGPS

2. Navigation Service for the CAA
General consideration on navigation, Operational requirements and strategy.

3. Safety of Life Services in Satellite Navigation (present and emerging technologies)
General consideration on EGNOS, WAAS, Operational requirements and strategy.

4. Demonstration and Simulations on the simulator or equipment device of ENAC

Course Director is Christophe Macabiau, ENAC Science and Air Navigation Engineering Department, Toulouse. The course will be conducted in english.
