EGNOS Services Our company delivers the EGNOS services, enabling safer and more accurate user-positioning than GPS-only signals. EGNOS LPV200 approach procedures are similar to ILS CAT I and can be flown in more than 200 European airports. Additionally, 454 airports currently have LPV procedures published in Europe. The ESSP is also committed to supporting EGNOS downstream users. Satellite Navigation Services GNSS Through its EGNOS service center, equipment and application developers, all market sectors can benefit from a standard and free-of-charge expertise on GNSS downstream applications. Our sector-specific experts can also deliver on-demand support for various stages of SBAS/GNSS products and services development such as regulatory framework advices, service definition and marketing or sector specific adoption plans. Export Consulting At the same time, as there is a growing interest from airlines to have their fleet equipped with SBAS capable avionics, some regions of the world are seeking to own and operate their own SBAS systems (Republic of South Korea, Africa...). ESSP is therefore supporting the implementation of new SBAS service provider’s organizations thanks to its long experience in this field.  58 WORLD ATM DIRECTORY & ANSP REPORT 2023
