Satellite navigation technology wins research invention award

A system for improving the clarity of satellite navigation signals has won the European Patent Office’s invention award for researchers.

The prize, which was announced on 15 June, went to a team based at the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales in France. The team is led by two engineers from France and Spain, Laurent Lestarquit and José Ángel Ávila Rodríguez.

The group was honoured for developing signalling technology that will help Galileo, the EU’s satellite navigation system, deliver better accuracy and clear up signal clutter. The technology will ensure that the radio signals from the more than 50 navigation satellites in orbit for various systems do not interfere with each other.
