Luxembourg-based satellite operator SES has announced the integration of the SES-5 GEO satellite into the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) operational platform. SES-5 replaces Inmarsat-4F2 and will ensure reliable EGNOS services until 2026. It was introduced through EGNOS System Release V241M, which enabled a range of performance improvements. In particular, EGNOS will offer even greater stability during periods of high ionospheric activity.
