Europe's GNSS Receiver Standard Nears Approval

European Union (EU) member countries are close to adopting a standard for satellite navigation receivers.

The proposed standard covers Satellite Earth Stations and Systems (SESS) as well as GNSS receivers operating in the bands 1164 MHz to 1300 MHz and 1559 MHz to 1610 MHz. Receivers must be able to withstand interference from adjacent bands at the listed levels.
