Validation and testing

A range of online resources, hardware and physical facilities are available to those who want to validate and test the time, differential and integrity functions of EGNOS-enabled devices. Other resources provide information extracted from the EGNOS signal.

The SCENIC project, which was funded through the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) has compiled a list of publicly-available software and hardware tools and facilities that can be used for simulating and testing EGNOS-enabled applications. These are available either free or for a charge.

For detailed info on GNSS simulation and testing infrastructure, go to: GSTI site or refer to the list below.
