In conclusion, BLUEGNSS is the first project of its kind to be coordinated at the FAB level. It may serve as a catalyst to spread RNP APCH know-how in the region and beyond, to the whole of Europe. Acknowledgments The authors wish to thank the entire team of DCAC, HCAA, MATS, ENAV, GSA, EC, and IDS that actively collabo- rated for the success of each phase of the BLUEGNSS project. The author's are also grateful for funding from the Euro- pean GNSS Agency under the European Un ion's Hor i z on 2020 research and innovation program under grant agree- ment No. 687198.
