“Being part of this innovative research project is testament to our important heritage on satellite navigation matters,” said Claudio Soddu, Inmarsat VP for navigation and special projects.

“A second generation SBAS testbed is a natural continuation of the concept of augmenting satellite navigation systems with a separate satellite data and ranging channel that we helped pioneer. Having previously been involved in testbeds and operational systems in other regions of the world, this collaboration showcases our capabilities in the Asia-Pacific region and potentially opens the door to further research and development projects in the future.”
