On February 8th, the results of the ARAIMTOO project were presented during a virtual session organized by GMV as the project’s leader, with collaboration from the other partners, VVA and NLR, and representatives from the European Commission, which is the funding body.
ARAIMTOO is a research project taking place in the context of the H2020 program, and its aim is to demonstrate the potential for ARAIM technology to be used in areas other than aviation. ARAIM stands for Advanced RAIM, which refers to the evolution of the receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM) technology that allows the integrity of global navigation satellite system (GNSS) signals to be determined, or in other words, their degree of reliability, in view of the errors that can occur in satellites in a context of multi‑constellation emitters of positioning and tracking signals.
During the online session, presentations were made regarding the results of experiments performed in the context of the ARAIMTOO project, to allow the use of ARAIM technology in areas including space, transportation by rail, sea, and road, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and location-based services (LBS).

During its 12‑month duration, the ARAIMTOO project has produced results that are expected to be very useful for advancing the application of ARAIM in industries other than aeronautics. In addition, the ARAIMFUSE project, also funded by the European Commission, was recently initiated as the successor to ARAIMTOO. GMV has also been awarded the contract to lead this project’s consortium, to continue with the exploration of the ways in which ARAIM can be adapted for its use in non‑aeronautic industries.
