The objective of this is activity is twofold: 1) to perform a dedicated System study on the use of multi-constellation GNSS forEarth-Moon missions completing previous studies, confirming feasibility, assessing achievable performances and identifying a preliminary architecture with possible enhancements/augmentation to existing GNSS constellations for Moon PNT service; 2) the activity includes the development and testing of a GNSS space-borne receiver for use in future demonstrations missions, to gather data and support further system activities. The system study shall be completed in a maximum of 9 months, while for the GNSS high-sensitive spaceborne prototype receiver development a maximum of 18 months shall be foreseen (target TRL5, Elegant Breadboard).
