EGNOS RIMS deployment

The Navigation Support Office is providing support to EGNOS with the deployment of new Range and Integrity Monitoring Stations (RIMS). This activity is performed in close cooperation with the EGNOS Project Office located in Toulouse (France). The objective is to consolidate the EGNOS coverage over ECAC area and extend it further towards North-Africa and Middle-East.
In this context, the main tasks are the identification of suitable RIMS locations in close cooperation with the hosting entities, follow-up of the preparation of the sites, the coordination of the industrial activities for the installation and the preparation of the RIMS handover  to the EGNOS operator (ESSP).
In particular, the Navigation Support Office is involved in the implementation of RIMS in the following locations: La Palma (Spain), Athens (Greece), Agadir (Morocco), Alexandria and AbuSimbel (Egypt), Tamanrasset (Algeria) and Jordan (Amman).
