SBRI: UK Global Navigation Satellite System: receiver concept development
This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition.
The UK Space Agency will invest in research and development (R&D) to explore the challenges, innovation and future concepts of UK GNSS receivers. GNSS is increasingly used to support basic societal and security functions.
The aim of this competition is to:
- conduct early concept development
- investigate new concepts for future GNSS receivers (user and reference or monitoring grade)
- identify innovative approaches to the delivery of more traditional models
- develop UK capabilities
- understand the possible opportunities ahead
This competition will have 2 phases:
- Phase 1A is an expression of interest.
- Phase 1B details will be revealed during the industry day on 28 November.
The SBRI process allows the UK Space Agency to fund 100% of the project’s eligible costs. This is under the pre-commercial procurement (PCP) of R&D protocol. Pre-commercial procurement is a way for the public and private sectors to share the risks and rewards of R&D. Contracts to carry out research and development services are awarded by the UK Space Agency to successful bidders.
There are no eligible project costs associated with an expression of interest. Funding for phase 1B will be detailed to successful applicants in this phase.
