1.1. Introduction

The mission of the European GNSS Agency (GSA) is to support European Union objectives and achieve the highest return on the European GNSS (E-GNSS) investment represented by the EGNOS and Galileo programmes, in terms of benefits to users and economic growth and EU industry competitiveness.

Galileo is a global navigation system under deployment in Europe. It is a system under civilian control, intended to provide navigation services to users, including reliable services for specific user communities. With the Declaration of Galileo Initial Services, Galileo officially moved from a testing phase to the provision of live services. Already at this Galileo development stage the user is able to exploit a significant improvement in terms of signal availability, especially in harsh environments, as in urban canyons, where chances to receive signals from GNSS satellites are limited due to the restricted visibility of the sky. Galileo provides precise, reliable and robust open service, enabling other desirable properties such as better resistance against multipath.

GNSS mass market applications cover two market segments: Location Based Services (LBS), understood as consumer grade GNSS applications accessible on smartphones, tablets and wearables and Internet of Things, understood for the purpose of this call as Machine to Machine applications, using communication networks to connect objects and share/monitor their location.

The performance required by most of these applications calls for even more accurate, reliable and ubiquitous signals and services. Since positioning is typically a key element of the user applications, its performance has to be stable in every environment and situation, providing the user with a seamless experience. Positioning solutions combine the use of GNSS with independent measurements derived from augmentation sensors and radio technologies to give better accuracy, availability, sensitivity and robustness against interference. The perception of GNSS as an important battery drain slows down its adoption in mass market, especially in IoT domain.

This call for proposals aims at optimising the GNSS mass market chipsets and integrating them in receivers/modules, introducing innovative techniques to offset typical GNSS receiver constraints such as power consumption, size, weight and cost, and aiming at high level performance, available in critical environments and robust to interferences.

The mass market streams addressed by this call are:

1) Premium Mass Market (PMM): the upper segment of mass market applications with respect to general purpose mass-market applications, requiring higher performances than the ones achievable by popular mass-market products such as trackers or step counters but less stringent than the professional ones such as GIS receivers. Smartphones are increasingly used in semi-professional applications, especially since they offer access to raw GNSS measurements, so they are considered as part of the PMM. Other examples of PMM products are specialised navigation devices e.g. for visually or physically impaired or high end devices for trekking/geocaching. The purpose of the developments is to optimise GNSS and in particular Galileo performance in difficult conditions building on its differentiators as well as increasing overall performance for more demanding applications.

2) General Mass Market (GMM): low end part of mass market applications, that is mainly cost-driven and for which energy consumption and physical size are key drivers. GMM receivers aim at uses in, primarily, Internet of Things applications such as objects and persons geo-fencing and tracking, smart lightning, bike sharing etc. The activities under this stream shall aim to make GNSS, and specifically Galileo, more attractive for integration into general low-end mass market devices by reducing power consumption, size and/or improving robustness, communications capabilities, etc. and above all having low cost. In this context low cost and low power generally implies simplicity which might result in single frequency and even single constellation. In the latter case, Galileo shall be the privileged PVT source for devices developed under this call for proposals.

In both cases the development funded under this call may be based on already existing chipset technologies, however they shall go beyond the current state of the art while applied to specific application area and shall aim at leveraging a number of Galileo differentiators, such as multi-frequency, exploitation of wide band signals and pilot channels, open service navigation message authentication, multi-constellation, etc. stimulating Galileo use in specific application area (e.g. it is possible to use an existing off the shelf GNSS chipset, in such case the innovation should be achieved in the process of integrating it within specific IoT module).

This call is launched within the EU R&D funding programme ‘Fundamental Elements’ which supports the development of EGNSS-enabled chipsets, receivers and/or antennas. The Fundamental Elements related projects are part of the overall European GNSS strategy for market uptake. The objectives of the Fundamental Elements can be summarised as following:

  •   Facilitate the adoption of the European GNSS Systems, building on their innovative services and differentiators;

  •   Improve the competitiveness of EU industry;

  •   Address user needs in priority market segments;

  •   Maximise benefits to European citizens.

1.2. Background of the call

This call is based on the Delegation Agreement concluded between the European Union, represented by the European Commission, and the European GNSS Agency (GSA) on the Exploitation Phase of the Galileo Programme signed on 2 October 2014.

In this framework, and in accordance with the Galileo Grants Plan for 2017 published on the GSA website (, the GSA is launching this call for proposals to further stimulate the Galileo adoption in mass-market devices by developing either:

Premium Mass Market grade GNSS devices and/or sub-components, or General Mass Market grade GNSS devices and/or sub-components.



2.1 Objective of the call for proposals


This Call for Proposals aims to achieve the two following objectives, and the applicant is requested to select (at least) one:

(1) Development, integration, testing and demonstration of hardware components and/or software/firmware algorithms filling technology gaps for Premium Mass Market GNSS devices:

  1. The components and/or algorithms shall be innovative, compliant with specific market constraints, ready to be integrated into a close-to-market device and meet the applications requirements.

  2. The components and/or algorithms developed shall leverage Galileo differentiators.

(2) Development, integration, testing and demonstration of hardware components and/or software/firmware algorithms filling technology gaps for Internet of Things (IoT) and/or other General Mass Market applications:

  1. The components and/or algorithms shall be innovative, cost efficient and compliant with other specific market constraints, ready to be integrated into a close-to-market device featuring either single- (Galileo) or double-constellation (Galileo/GPS) and meeting the applications requirements.

  2. The components and/or algorithms developed shall ideally leverage Galileo differentiators.

For both cases, the outcome of the developments shall be close-to-market prototype(s), which correspond to reaching a TRL not lower than 71.

2.2. Scope and areas of activities of the call for proposals

As a first step, the applicant is requested to select objective no.1, objective no.2 or both of them, identify the gaps to be filled and define the target application(s) enabled by the developed technology. Afterwards, depending on the actual objective, the applicant will propose a development in line with the following scope of work.

To be noted that the two objectives are not mutually exclusive and the applicants are free to propose solutions that either combine or are suitable to both PMM and GMM.

2.2.1. Scope and areas of activities of the first objective
The first objective aims to develop PMM-oriented devices, or relevant sub-components, to accelerate the

adoption of Galileo and its differentiators in the premium mass market segment.

To be noted that the applicant is not necessarily requested to develop the whole device nor the underlying GNSS chipset/receiver, as it is allowed to build on existing technology and propose innovation going beyond that. The applicant is expected to develop GNSS relevant technology filling the gap with current and future PMM needs, which may range between techniques to enable ubiquitous positioning, software algorithms to lower power consumption, new ways of using the GNSS raw measurements available in Android, etc. The developed technology shall be integrated and demonstrated in a GNSS device fitting one or more application within the PMM market.

1 Applicable Technology Readiness Level (TRL) for this call is the one defined by the European Commission: annex-g-trl_en.pdf


The user requirements for PMM market are close to the ones of pure high-end applications, however they have to be achieved in the respect of typical mass market devices’ constraints. The applicant is expected to develop technology able to step further in one or more of the following directions:

  •   Accuracy;

  •   Availability, including indoor penetration

  •   Fast acquisition and tracking

  •   Multipath mitigation

  •   Robustness, including interference detection and mitigation

  •   Authentication

  •   Size factor

  •   Software Defined Radio based architecture

The above list is not meant to be exhaustive, and it is up to the applicant to propose the innovation field and define a target for that.

As an example, a technology enabling high accuracy and robust PVT exploiting as primary GNSS Galileo multi-frequency E1 and E5a or E1 and E5b, also benefitting of data-less (pilot) channels by means of a consumer device enabling professional-like applications in a pocket size device is a qualifying objective for this call.

The developed technology shall be complemented by commercial components to integrate a close-to- market prototype, test the solution and demonstrate the achieved objective in an operational environment. The prototype maturity shall therefore reach as minimum TRL 7.

While ensuring an optimised processing of the Galileo signals in a multi-constellation approach, the E-GNSS differentiators’ role to improve the PMM application(s) shall be assessed against the identified user needs and integrated whenever relevant.

Examples of Galileo differentiators are proposed below, and others may be identified and leveraged:

  •   Multiple carrier frequency, wide bandwidth E-GNSS signals (allowing for e.g. low-power dual- frequency RF front-end architecture for E1/E5a, E1/E5b or E1/E5/E6 signals. The usage of the third frequency (E6), at least enabling the RF front-end and providing the necessary processing resources, shall be positively evaluated);

  •   Data-less (pilot) channels, enabling longer integration times and ultimately increasing sensitivity, which is essential to track the GNSS signals in harsh and light indoor environments and will become even more in view of the increasing number of GNSS signals broadcast;

  •   The prospect of a Navigation Message Authentication service transmitted over Open Service E1;

  •   The use of carrier-phase based applications and satellite based real-time Precise Point Positioning

    (PPP) products, such as the one foreseen in the Galileo Commercial Service;

  •   Integration of miniaturised Galileo SAR beacon with mass market device such as smartphones.



2.2.2. Scope and areas of activities of the second objective

The second objective aims to develop devices suitable for GMM applications, or relevant sub-components, to accelerate the adoption of Galileo and its differentiators in the Internet of Things or other general mass market segment.

The applicant is allowed to develop innovation building on existing low-end mass market technology, such as a commercial GNSS chipset, and/or other HW/SW COTS solutions, to integrate a close-to-market device. The applicant is expected to develop GNSS relevant technology filling the gap with current and future GMM needs. The development is meant to ease the Galileo penetration into low-end low-cost devices making an optimal use of its differentiators, and shall ideally aim to address some known areas of improvements in this highly constrained market domain. The developed technology shall be integrated and demonstrated in a GNSS device fitting one or more application within the GMM market.

In order to reach such objective, the applicant has to create real innovation in GNSS related topics suitable for low-end mass market applications, such as but not limited to:

Galileo/GNSS integrated with Signals of Opportunity to deliver users the best user experience. In particular the integration with LPWAN, WLAN, LoRA, NB-IoT and other innovative low-power communication technologies with GNSS to transfer IoT devices’ PNT data;

Galileo/GNSS integrated with other low-cost technologies to create multi-sensor PNT systems that allow smooth transition from outdoor to indoor navigation, while optimising the energy consumption and/or more in general implementing techniques to increase battery lifetime.

The beneficiary shall introduce innovation while keeping the main driving factors of the GMM applications as low as possible, i.e. cost, size and power consumption. In this regard the proposed solution might result into a low cost single frequency and even single constellation device, for which the presence of Galileo and its differentiators (see examples above) shall be privileged to meet the user requirements. In addition the applicant may decide to step further and integrate the development with communication channels while addressing security related aspects, if deemed valuable.

The developed technology shall be complemented by commercial components to integrate a close-to- market prototype, test the solution and demonstrate the achieved objective in an operational environment. The prototype maturity shall therefore reach as minimum TRL 7.

2.2.3. Transversal activities common to the both objectives
Irrespective of the selected development’s objective, the project will also include the following activities:

 Dissemination: the beneficiary shall take measures to disseminate the achievements of the projects among relevant stakeholders in the appropriate phases of the project. The dissemination plan shall define the strategy to engage those stakeholders with the aim of fostering the innovation created in the frame of the action and creating market awareness of the project’s results. The demonstration stage, using real Signal in the Space up to the maximum extent, shall be a fundamental step of the dissemination path and the beneficiary is encouraged to involve all the main stakeholders and key players in order to optimise the benefit resulting from its execution. Other expected dissemination means are specialized magazines and sector press, presentations, leaflets and brochures, public event(s), promotional video(s), websites, social networks, etc.


 Business plan: the beneficiary shall define a Business plan describing the strategy to exploit the results. It shall identify actions that the beneficiary will take both after the completion of the project and during the action (e.g. to get involved with potential business partners and engage them in the evolution of the project to be ready to move to the next commercialisation phase). The progress of the actions taken during the implementation of the project, together with the achievements from the step f), shall be reported in the deliverable “Report about the status of implementation of the business plan and dissemination plan” (see deliverables list in section 2.4). A preliminary version of the Business Plan shall be also included in the proposal.

 The prototype shall be fully compliant with the Galileo Open Service Interface Control Document (OS ICD) applicable at the time of project kick-off.

 The proposed development has to go beyond the current state-of-the-art. For the sake of clarity the applicant is requested to submit and clearly describe in the technical proposal (B1- B2 Forms) a summary of the current state-of-the-art and the identified technology gap proposed to be filled. The following table can fit the purpose:

Proposed element of innovation


Current state of the art


Technology gap to be filled




As of 15 December 2016, Europe's satellite navigation system Galileo started offering its Initial Services to public authorities, businesses and citizens. Therefore the applicants are encouraged to exploit the Signal In Space transmitted by the Galileo constellation and validate/demonstrate the solution in real operational conditions.

    2. Critical Design Review (CDR) which will set the system detailed design and architecture;

  3. (4)  Implementation of the receiver’s prototype(s) (number to be proposed by the applicants).

  4. (5)  Following a Test Readiness Review (TRR), the functional and performance testing is performed, which aims at verifying the prototype’s compliance with the requirements for what concerns the functionalities and the target performance.

  5. (6)  Dissemination activities, including a final demonstration execution targeting a specific application within the identified application’s class.

  6. (7)  Commercialisation activities, made of a set of actions taken by the beneficiary to undertake to prepare the ground for commercialisation of the results.

The applicants shall propose a credible deliverables plan coherent with the work plan aiming at properly conducting the activities in the scope of the project. The timing of deliverables will be carefully assessed by the GSA in the evaluation stage as specified in section 10.

The applicant can propose in their offer a different project workflow to be approved by GSA at Kick-off meeting.

The functional and performance testing shall be performed in collaboration with the Joint Research Centre (JRC) at the European Microwave Signature Laboratory of the European Commission in Ispra, Italy. There are no additional costs for the beneficiaries related to these testing and validation activities for what concerns the use the JRC facilities and the involvement of the JRC experts. However, the beneficiaries shall take into account the travel and transportation costs in their proposal.

In addition, before the validation and acceptance will start, the beneficiaries may also have access to the JRC facilities in order to perform additional tests which are part of the project development, if the beneficiaries would consider this opportunity useful.

For those tests, the access to the facilities will be also free of charge but the JRC support will be limited to assist in the use of the facilities. Should the beneficiaries consider this option, an agreement should be established with JRC for access and use of their facilities.

    have been specifically established for carrying out the action (e.g. groupings, joint ventures).

  2. b)  legal persons having a legal or capital link with a beneficiary or co-beneficiary, which is neither limited to the action nor established for the sole purpose of its implementation (e.g. networks,

    federations, trade-unions).

5.6 Subcontractors
Sub-contractors are not beneficiaries to the grant, nor affiliated entities.

Subcontracting4 refers to contracts concluded for the externalisation of specific tasks or activities which form part of the action.

The beneficiaries remain solely responsible for the implementation of the action. Subcontracting is not allowed among the beneficiaries in the project. Please note that the beneficiaries must have the necessary capacity to perform the project themselves.

Subcontracting of specific tasks or activities (i.e. the externalisation) which form part of the action as described in the proposal must satisfy the conditions applicable to any implementation contract (as specified above) and in addition to them the following conditions:

a. it may only cover the implementation of a limited part of the action and shall in no case cover core activities as described in Section 2.3;

b. it must be justified having regard to the nature of the action and what is necessary for its implementation;

c. it must be clearly stated in the proposal.

The applicants must have operational capacity to perform the work proposed in their proposal. This operational capacity will be assessed at the time of the evaluation of the proposal (please refer to section 9.2 Operational Capacity below).

In exceptional cases, where the implementation of the action or the technical proposal (B1-B2 Forms) can be done more efficiently and effectively through the award of subcontracts (implementation contracts), the beneficiary must award the contract to the bid offering best value for money or the lowest price (as appropriate), avoiding conflicts of interests and retain the relevant documentation for the event of an audit. Entities acting in their capacity of contracting authorities in the meaning of Directive 2004/18/EC5 or contracting entities in the meaning of Directive 2004/17/EC6 shall abide by the applicable national public procurement rules.

The costs of subcontracting can be eligible under the conditions indicated in the grant agreement (see also point 2.8 in section 12.2 below). The proposal should clearly specify the activities that will be subcontracted in the description of the action and the corresponding costs must be indicated in the estimated budget. The contract should be awarded in accordance with the conditions set in the grant agreement. Recourse to the award of contracts must be duly justified having regard to the nature of the action and what is necessary for its implementation.

Any justification provided by the beneficiary needs to be pre-endorsed by the GSA and subcontracting shall require GSA’s approval which may be considered granted in cases where the subcontracting is already fully described in the proposal as accepted by the GSA, given that it will then be implemented accordingly and fulfilling the eligibility criteria specified in the signed Grant Agreement.

The tasks concerned must be set out in the description of the action (i.e. form B1 and Annex I to the Grant Agreement) and the estimated costs of subcontracting must be clearly identifiable in the estimated budget (Form C1). However, approval of subcontracting by GSA (whether at the time of the evaluation of proposal or later during implementation of the action) does not automatically mean that the related costs will be considered eligible and reimbursed. The costs will need to comply with the eligibility criteria set up in the grant agreement in order for them to be reimbursed.

Any modifications on an ad hoc basis while the action is under way must be presented for ex-ante approval of the GSA and for major items will require an amendment to the grant agreement otherwise will not be reimbursed.

It is not necessary to have already selected subcontractors at the time the proposal is submitted. However, cost of subcontractors not selected in accordance with the rules referred to in this Section will not be eligible.
