About the OMC
The output of the OMC will give a broad insight into the current state of the art of the BroadGNSS proposed system. It will allow contributors to give feedback on what technologies should be included in BroadGNSS, where they see the biggest technical challenges and what more information should be shared in order to make scope of the challenge clearer. The results of the consultations will be fully documented and taken into account in order to detail the tender specifications.
BroadGNSS, a Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) action funded by the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) under Horizon 2020, is inviting potentially interested bidders to participate in an open market consultation for its upcoming PCP to improve the services that public safety and disaster relief organisations offer to Europe’s citizens.
The BroadGNSS project is running from December 2020 until March 2024 with the aim of procuring R&D services to develop deployable applications for synchronisation and monitoring of critical mobile broadband communication infrastructure and information assets for Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) based on EGNOS and Galileo.
