Enhanced Navigation and Positioning


Enhanced Navigation and Positioning

The project MARUSE is focusing on future requirements for maritime navigation, which have already been expressed formally from IMO and other authorities. It addresses topics like security and safety, integrity, continuity, availability and accuracy. The objective of the project is to bring together SME’s, maritime GNSS industry, other GNSS industry and key service providers and users within maritime and inland waterways with the aim to introduce EGNOS and Galileo in the maritime domain.

The second demonstration of the MARUSE project took place at the Danube lock Djerdap I in Serbia. The aim of this event was to demonstrate high performance inland waterways applications using available GNSS, AIS, EGNOS and software simulations to raise awareness of the potential of the future European satellite navigation system Galileo in the Inland Waterway sector. An additional objective was to demonstrate how these new systems can help to increase safety and efficiency in Inland Waterway transportation though assistance in lock management with up-to-date traffic information.

A Maritime User Terminal, Local Element Infrastructure and a Local Element receiver were demonstrated as part of the equipment and technological solutions developed within the MARUSE project. During the event a live demonstration of a lock approach and locking procedure was given to the attendants to show shortcomings of existing systems and benefits of the MARUSE solution in critical navigation situations.
