GALCORE, from DEIMOS Engenharia, was one of the funded proposals of the 1st evaluation of the PTTI. This project, whose acronym stands for Galileo Code Receiver, proposes in 6 months to assemble, integrate, fly and demonstrate an innovative GRIP Receiver (GNSS Receive Prototype Builder) on the existing UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) platform of UAVISION. The demonstration proposes to transfer space technology (Galileo receiver) to a civil application with proven market potential: the inspection of infrastructure using UAVs on difficult to reach places (e.g. buildings, public utilities, eolic generators, power lines), preferably in urban environments, and also considering possible future expansion to other applications such as surveillance.
