This EXPRO+ procurement is part of the NAVISP Programme, under Elelment 1, Work Plan 2018.The objective of this study is to investigate the benefits of sensors fusion of on-board aircraft sensors with GNSS, in order to overcome the current safety limitations ofGNSS (the protection levels and Time To Alert for example), to improve the system resilience to external perturbing factors, and toevaluate the impact this fusion would have on the user positioning algorithm.Sensors fusion is a promising path to overcome the performance limitations and improve the resilience of individual systems. The combination of GNSS with various types of additional measurements like ranging data (RA, LIDAR) or non ranging data (IMU, ADS, optical sensors) could lead to better, more robust position solutions and improve the situational awareness of the flight crew. The outcome of that study could help to define future GNSS mission requirements.
