Abstract: Positioning accuracy is very important in many areas, whereas the typical GPS receiver accuracy is often not sufficient. The European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS), Europe’s first venture into satellite navigation, improves the open public service offered by the Global Positioning System (GPS). As a satellite navigation augmentation system, EGNOS improves the accuracy of GPS by providing a positioning accuracy to within 3 meters. In this paper we present GNSS receivers based on EGNOS, dedicated for precise positioning in restricted areas of continental shelf performance. The article presents some results regarding position accuracy, obtained for a few receivers in that context.
