A total of 16 participants attended this meeting which supposed the launch event of this project focused on Advanced Shipborne Galileo Receiver Double Frequency.
This meeting covered aspects like: the ITT project objectives, the consortium presentation, the ASGARD project presentation (starting point, work plan, WWPP description and deliverables identification), deliverables at KoM, etc.
The starting point for ASGARD receiver development presented in the KoM is composed by a SAAB R5 Navigation System provided to the project and the GMV PRESENCE2 GNSS OEM receiver, in Open Service version. This second device will evolve during the project to be aligned with the ITT objectives and afterwards integrated to produce the ASGARD shipborne receiver.
