The CASTLE Advisory Board
Dear Satellite Navigation based Application and Service Designers, and Supporters Already in 2002 the European Parliament gave its consent to the building of Galileo, Europe's own, independent global navigation satellite system. Planned to be operative in 2011 this largest industrial project organised on a European scale will be the first European public-private partnership. Currently, Navstar-GPS delivers an accuracy between five to ten metres. Galileo is planned to be accurate within two metres and its commercial service down to less than one metre. The range of services offered will be designed to meet the worldwide needs of customers like guaranteed availability, authenticity and integrity. Together with the European overlay signal EGNOS and by using differential procedures the accuracy can be further improved into the decimeter range.

Henk A. Uittenbogaard, Wireless Leiden Foundation is CEO and founder of AnyWi Technology BV. Prior to joining AnyWi, Henk was President with Cyco Holding BV in the Netherlands. Henk studied Electronics and Industrial Design at the Technical University in Delft. He’s chairman of the Wireless Leiden Foundation, home of one of the largest wireless networks in the world and has positions in several advisory and steering comities in the field of education and innovation.
In order to match the expected more than 100 000 jobs to be created by Galileo in Europe alone a large downstream market has to be developed around the different services to be offered by the space-based radio signal infrastructure through its provider / concessionaire consortium. We think it is important to bring the chances this new technology offers closer to companies, which are not traditionally related to the space segment and motivate and convince them that it is worth to think about innovative businesses based on accurate time and location information. It is for this reason European regions active in satellite-based applications and services are to collaborate closer to reach a higher critical mass of users and developers and a greater impact of commonly designed support measures, strategies and policies to foster the development of a lead market in this potential high-growth area.

Proposal for Roadmapping of Galileo Applications and Services
All activities planned and performed within CASTLE can so be discussed with the target groups immediately.
Business & Markets Products & Services
close look at today’s Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) market clearly shows that there is a huge lack of information in regard to GNSS technologies, esp. on the development and major milestones of the GALILEO project, the products and services offered and the business opportunities resulting from the given pre-requisites. This leads to a rather slow ramp up of companies developing applications utilising the signals in future provided by the upcoming European satellite navigation system GALILEO, which is planned to be fully operational as of 2011. On the other hand, there is a need for encouragement of networking activities between market players involved, be it industry, research organizations and/or public authorities. All this was also confirmed by representatives throughout the GNSS community, i.e. the Bavarian Cluster Manager for Aerospace and Satellite Navigation, other representatives of public authorities, leading industry players and members of research institutions working in the SatNav environment. Having talked to representatives of different regions, some part of the CASTLE consortium (Prague, CZ / Leiden, NL), and some representing further European regions, e.g. Sophia-Antipolis, the tenor was quite the same. A regional initiative called CASTLE M - for the Munich region - has been launched end of March 2006. It brings together stakeholders from all economic sectors involved in and necessary for a successful implementation of a SatNav Cluster in the region: • Industry representatives (mostly SMEs) • Public authorities • Chamber of commerce • Financial sector and • CASTLE steering committee members
Technology & Major Milestones

CASTLE will identify trends with regard to GNSS and especially GALILEO and provide them to the target audience of the project. As a basis for the information process and communication process towards the market a technology roadmapping approach has been chosen. The reason for this was the conclusion that the lack of information mentioned above is much more than just “missing” information. Moreover there is a lack of understanding for the correlation between the different GNSS technologies (GPS, EGNOS, GALILEO and others) and the business opportunities arising out of it. This is mainly because there is no joint communication

available on how these technologies interfere with each other. This again leads to a missing understanding of the enormous chances opened by entering these markets. Particularly, SMEs have difficulties in taking a decision to enter new markets without having reliable information on future chances. So the recommendation to the CASTLE steering committee was, to put together a roadmap document with the following purpose: • Outlining technological development steps and major milestones • Outlining services offered by the respective system and
4 - 5
• Outlining business opportunities for enterprises (esp. SMEs) which want to involve in SatNav application and service development. The new European system GALILEO is a consequent enhancement of today‘s GNSS technology furthermore if compared to the features delivered by EGNOS in conjunction with GPS. Services available in this combination lead the way to GALILEO‘s approach in regards to integrity of signals, higher accuracy of positioning data, guaranteed signal quality for certain services and suitability for critical applications.

Introduction to CASTLE CASTLE is one of the cluster networks supported by the European Commission, DG Enterprise and Industry, within its Europe INNOVA initiative, www.europe-innova.org. Europe INNOVA comprises about thirty networks and Accompanying Measures many of them divided up in industrial sectors, but also providing horizontal trans-sectoral links and opportunities to join forces. Three out of the about 30 networks specialise in satellite navigation and space technology related fields, these are FINANCE Space, INVESaT and CASTLE. Addresses and contact details can be found on the rear page of this newsletter.
CASTLE Consortium Partners CASTLE receives strong inputs from its four SME and company partners all active in the field of satellite-based applications and services operating close to market. This is Anywi, Leiden, NL; the AUTO TAG Group, Uvaly, CZ, EUREKA (ENS) and GAF, both based in Munich. Network co-ordination and scientific co-ordination are split between GründerRegio M (GRM), the knowledgebased start-off and innovation platform in the region of Munich and the Leiden-based Center for Technology and Innovation Management CeTIM. Both are supplemented in their expertise by the official Czech body for space affairs, the Czech Space Office (CSO), Prague and the Czech Technical University's Faculty of Transportation Sciences in Prague.
GründerRegio M is an initiative of the science and business region of Munich fostering knowledgebased spin-offs and start-ups. Since 1998 GründerRegio M has focused its activities on guiding entrepreneurs from academia towards a successful business career. Currently, it has more than 30 members, all engaged in start-up support. The objectives of GründerRegio M are: • Establishing a sustainable culture of entrepreneurship in the Munich region • Promoting an infrastructure that reduces costs and time involved in setting up a company and motivates to start a business • Increasing number and quality of university start-ups. • Representing the Munich region in European programs as a centre of excellence for innovative companies Through its various projects GründerRegio M offers services like training, coaching, flexible office space and networking for entrepreneurs. www.gr-m.de
CASTLE's work rests on five main pillars. These are • Analysis and evaluation of existing cluster management structures and assets in the three partner regions Leiden, Munich and Prague/Czech Republic • Exchange of best practices • Preparation for road mapping of Galileo and GNSS applications as part of market observation and trends • Fostering of joint activities between the three regions' institutions and cluster members • Dissemination through newsletters, articles, presence at exhibitions, organisation of and participation in workshops and conferences • Political recommendations for policy makers on the European level as well as to support cluster managers and political decision makers in the regions.
CeTIM is an international academic research and education institute at the University of Leiden, NL, and the University BW, Munich, D. The institute is composed of two competence centers. The Competence Center Innovation Management is conducting research in the area of entrepreneurial growth of technology based new ventures and their strategic management. The Competence Center Virtual Organisations deals with organisational forms of the knowledge society. CeTIM research is mainly organised in cooperative projects with international partners from industry and science. CeTIM Program Management Office stands for high quality in definition, development and management of research projects. CeTIM Academy offers “lifelong-learning” for the special needs of natural scientists and engineers, who seek entrepreneurial/managerial responsibility. www.cetim.org
These major activities are spread out over the runtime of 30 months and led by the work package leaders CeTIM, Czech Space, Eureka and GründerRegio M. All five work packages are kept together by a strategic and systematic arranging of CASTLE's activities in the satellite-based application and service scene in Europe and within the political environment of the three regions Leiden, Munich and Prague. CASTLE is an open scheme to participate, it is an offer to European regions to join in our activities and in workshops and contribute to our meetings and conferences by providing feedback and inputs to our work. Recent policy schemes on the fostering of lead markets in Europe seized on by the current Finnish Presidency of the European Council suggest an open regional innovation platform for Galileo applications and services as a next step to foster Galileo downstream markets. To be started as a European nucleus the three Europe INNOVA satnav/space networks will sign a common Memorandum of Understanding comprising - among others - a series of strategic workshops European regions will commit themselves to organise under a common roof.
