With Brexit on the horizon, the UK Space Agency is interested in creating its own GNSS.
The agency is investing in research and development that explores challenges and ideas around receivers for a future UK global navigation satellite system.
Specifically, the agency is seeking UK organizations that are interested in investigating and developing concepts for satellite system receivers.
The best ideas could be awarded contracts in a later stage of the competition under the Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI).
Following Brexit, the UK would be locked out from the European Union’s Galileo-provided services, including the upcoming Public Regulated Service (PRS), an encrypted navigation signal for governmental-authorized users and sensitive applications such as the military.
