3. This call is launched within the EU R&D funding programme ‘Fundamental Elements’ which supports the development of EGNSS-enabled chipsets, receivers and antennas. The objectives of the Fundamental Elements can be summarised as following:  Facilitate the adoption of the European GNSS Systems, building on their innovative services and differentiators  Improve the competitiveness of EU industry  Address user needs in priority market segments  Maximise benefits to European citizens Call background 3

4. GNSS systems are delivering today a free and highly accurate timing capability available worldwide, providing a way to obtain the Coordinate Universal Time (UTC). Call background 4 Precise Timing & Synchronisation (T&S) is crucial to a range of strategic applications as telecommunications and computer networks, energy generation and distribution, finance or other governmental functionalities. All these applications use Critical Infrastructures (CI) with different accuracy requirements that are essential for maintaining such vital societal functions as health, safety, economic and social well‐being of people.

5. The call for proposal aims at developing, testing and assessing a Galileo-based time receiver prototype for the Critical Infrastructures and providing accurate and highly robust timing. Activities shall be divided in six tasks: Task 1: User’s requirements Task 2: Timing Receiver’s Requirements Task 3: Detailed design of the Receiver prototype Task 4: Prototype development Task 5: Testing and validation of the receiver prototype Task 6: Dissemination of the results Objectives of the call 5

6.  As described in Section 2.1  The receiver shall be configurable for providing time in Galileo System Time and UTC based on Galileo signals only, in single and in multiple frequency  The receiver shall improve the timing robustness Essential objectives to be reached 9 MANDATORY MUST BE IN ANY PROPOSAL

7.  All the activities described in Sec 2.2 of the CfP  A preliminary strategy for the validation of the receiver’s performances  A methodology for requirements identification, design, development and testing of the receiver  A methodology of dissemination plan including extent of demonstration activities General requirements 10 REQUIRED MUST BE IN ANY PROPOSAL
