The global objective of the GRIMASSE project is:

to propose and demonstrate innovative and global solutions based on MEOSAR system, and particularly Galileo SAR Service, to improve the safety and security of General Aviation.

The main objectives of the projects are:

  • To improve the SAR detection and response to general aviation distress, through the integration of new features into the beacon for General Aviation, in terms of cost optimization, user-friendly aspects, integration of Galileo and EGNOS reception for improved encoded localization performance and reliability, and in-flight triggering capabilities

  • To optimize the responsiveness of RCCs towards the distress situations affecting aircrafts

  • To adapt the MCCs and MEOLUT to the data distribution of ELT(DT) SAR alerts and specific accommodation of beacon inside general aviation airplanes and helicopters affecting the transmission performances
