Validated LPV approach procedures in Tunisia making use of the EGNOS coverage in North Africa (© MEDUSA) Published on: 11/02/2014
Only a few months after partial EGNOS coverage availability in North Africa, the validation flights campaign was carried out with the support of ESSP, the EGNOS Services Provider, which has performed the EGNOS’s feasibility assessment.
MEDUSA’s team led by Telespazio and composed by ENAV, OACA, INECO and Helios, have validated GNSS-based approach procedures designed by the project, for the airport of Monastir in Tunisia.
This activity is part of MEDUSA’s assistance actions programme for promoting the use of satellite navigation in the Euromed countries (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia).
In parallel, MEDUSA is also aiding the Tunisian competent authorities in the future publication of the validated procedures and in the process for the operational adoption of GNSS in aviation.
The results of these assistance actions will be presented during a public workshop organized by MEDUSA and hosted by GEMCO (Galileo Euromed Cooperation Office) in Tunis on the 4th of June 2014.
