GIGA intends to introduce satellite navigation technology in user community (UC) energy processes with a special view on current satellite positioning systems like, for example, GPS and GLONASS and the future European Galileo system.

GIGA aims at analysing, demonstrating and disseminating the benefits of EGNOS and Galileo (+GPS) for high precision positioning applications in the area of energy exploitation and supply. GIGA will help to increase the awareness on Galileo/EGNOS and the related chances and positive impacts for the ‘energy’ community. Measures and technologies will be defined, developed and made known to UC energy by using design concepts, demonstrators and public events.
