In 2017 the European Union’s GSA officially launched the EDG²E project. This project intends to develop a dual-frequency multi-constellation receiver, enabling enhanced navigation capabilities, support standardisation and certification preparation. As a potential user of the future receiver, we would appreciate your feedback about the project through the following questionnaire.
