Regulation In The European Union

On September 22nd, 2010, the European Parliament and the Council, which represents the EU's citizens, announced the setting up of the European GNSS Agency. This agency replaced the European GNSS Supervisory Authority, after a 2008 Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council discussed further implementation of the European satellite navigation programmes.

 

At the end of 2013, the aim of the Galileo and EGNOS programmes, and the aim of the European GNSS Agencywas clarified by the European Parliament and the Council, also understanding the ever-growing use of many economic sectors in the GNSS’s PNT abilities, and supporting the development of applications and services based on the systems. In that regulation, the European Union acknowledges the sensitivity of the GNSS infrastructures, and states that security measures should be taken into account.

 

With the understanding that the GNSS infrastructure is prone to malicious attacks, European Commission has published a call for tenders in October 2020, looking for an alternative PNT services. This alternative is meant to be used as a backup in case a GNSS disruption will occur.
