Standardisation of GNSS Threat reporting and Receiver testing through International Knowledge Exchange, Experimentation and Exploitation STRIKE3

GNSS is being used for an ever increasing range of safety, security, business and policy critical applications. GNSS functionality is also being embedded into many parts of critical infrastructures. At the same time, GNSS vulnerabilities are being exposed and threats to denial of GNSS service are increasing.  There is now a need to respond at an international level to ensure that there is (i) a common standard for GNSS threat reporting and analysis and (ii) a global standard for assessing the performance of GNSS receivers and applications under threat.

STRIKE3 will develop international standards in the area of GNSS threat reporting and GNSS receiver testing.  This will be achieved through international partnerships.  GNSS threat reporting standards are required to ensure that international threat databases can be developed.  GNSS receiver test standards are required to ensure new applications can be validated against the latest threats.  Both of these standards are missing across all civil application domains and are considered a barrier to the wider adoption and success of GNSS in the higher value markets.

Being an active research entity in the fields of robust GNSS navigation, Finnish Geospatial Research Institute will be actively involved in this Horizon 2020 project contributing to the standardization of GNSS threat monitoring, reporting and receiver testing. FGI will cooperate hand in hand with other EU project partners for the development of a GNSS threat test-bench for evaluating GNSS receivers in the presence of the threats. The project will demonstrate the value of European-GNSS signals as a critical component of protecting GNSS solutions, applications and services.
