NAVISP Releases New Funding in 2023

The Ministerial Council of the European Space Agency (ESA), meeting last fall (2022), agreed to extend the Navigation Innovation and Support Program (NAVISP), the agency’s funding mechanism for new navigation solutions that go beyond the use of GNSS signals and data. That means 2023 will see the launch of new NAVISP activities.

The ionospheric scintillation phenomenon

The SAGAIE network was deployed in West-Africa in 2013 to assess the feasibility of an equatorial for ASECNA SBAS by studying ionospheric scintillation. This study of the network’s measurements, taken between 2013 and 2016, analyzes the characteristics of the scintillation recorded by five receivers that cover Sub-Saharan West-Africa.
