This EXPRO+ procurement is part of the NAVISP Programme, under Elelment 1, Work Plan 2018. There is a growing market targeting theconcept of ‘install and forget an IoT device’, which calls for ultra-low energy and low-cost devices. However there are difficulties with the inclusion of positioning capabilities within an IoT device in terms of complying with the ultra-low-energy requirements (10+/15+ years of battery life) especially for space-based PNT capabilities. The main objective of the proposed activity is to: – design, assess feasibility, develop and demonstrate new concepts and paradigms of PNT for ultra-low energy (and low-cost) devices for hybrid terrestrial/satellite networks and space-based PNT systems.
