M3 systems and TilT Consulting on June 1 were announced the winners of the competition MyEUspace The 2021 competition for their passive radar to detect and localize interference is based solely on GNSS signals.
The The SANGENE project (Sens And Navigation on GNSS ENEstimation) aims to demonstrate the concept of integrated GNSS-based passive radar for the detection and first localization of interference.
The SANGENE solution is a passive radar technology based solely on GNSS signals integrated into a localization and navigation device currently available on board an aircraft or drone. Modern operational navigation equipment often uses a combination of equipment to identify and locate other media or obstacles, but these tools do not allow the detection and visualization of unequipped or inoperative media and can be a source of danger.
GNSS signals can be used to detect interference as “signals of opportunity”. With the reflected signals, GNSS satellites behave like a variety of radar signal sources that are widely available while remaining discrete.
This principle of the passive detector also allows to increase the ability to localize existing GNSS devices without making major architectural changes in their design.
Within a few months, this solution moved from the first level of concept and definition to the implementation model. Thanks to the incentive provided by the competition, the verification phase will begin soon.
The MyEUspace competition was organized by the European Space Agency (EUPSA) to support the development of innovative commercial solutions, such as mobile applications or hardware solutions using EU Galileo or Copernicus space data.
