R-Mode Baltic & R-Mode Baltic 2

The project launches the development of a technical system that allows for safe ship navigation when the established Global Navigation Satellite Systems fail due to intentional or unintentional interference. The 12 partners of maritime administrations, research institutions and private companies of Germany, Sweden, Norway and Poland test broadcast signals transmitted via radio beacons and base stations of the Very high frequency Data Exchange System (VDES). This serves to develop prototypes for ranging mode transmitters, receivers and applications. The Baltic Sea is the first operational test area for this technology worldwide that provides R-Mode signals in two frequency bands.
