Default GNSS System Mandates Would Violate International Trade Agreements

GNSS System Mandates Would Violate International Trade Agreements

A U.S. government representative stated at an international satnav
forum that mandating use of specific GNSS services for applications
such as air-traffic control, freight shipments, emergency calling,
and road tolling could violate the terms of World Trade Organization
(WTO) agreements that many nations, including all six GNSS providers,
have signed. Regional mandates already exist for Glonass in Russia
and Beidou in China, and have been suggested and extensively
discussed in Europe, as a way of stimulating the market adoption of
Galileo receiver chipsets, thus recouping some of the massive public
investment in the satnav system.
