MEDUSA - MEDiterranean follow-Up for EGNOS Adoption

The MEDUSA project is part of the Euromed GNSS II project, funded by the European Commission in the frame of the Euromed Transport prohramme, whose objective is to extended/exploit the use of EGNOS in the Euromed countries (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria and Tunisia). MEDUSA aids the Euromed countries towards the operational introduction and the exploitation of the European GNSS (EGNOS/Galileo) in various applications, mainly in the transport sectors. Led by Telespazio (Italy) and supported by a team of EU experts, MEDUSA runs a programme of technical assistance actions, aimed at capacity building, development of enablers and regional cooperation.
