Beside the implementation of the R-Mode Baltic test bed the project team works also on documents that will help other national maritime service provider to understand what is R-Mode, what are the requirements on a backup system to GNSS and what are the capabilities of the R-Mode system. Furthermore, documents will be made available that documents the project progress with signal design, system design, test bed implementation, receiver and base station hardware development, application development and tests.
R-Mode Baltic - Baseline and Priorities
The R-Mode Baltic baseline and priorities report summarises requirements with respect to a backup system to GNSS which can be found in official documents of international maritime organisations. Furthermore, it introduces available terrestrial radionavigation systems and shows the current status of R-Mode activities worldwide. Based on that R-Mode Baltic test bed requirements on the system and service are deduced.
