R-Mode Baltic 2 works on a reliable and globally accepted backup system for coastal navigation. The first R-Mode Baltic project set up a test bed for a terrestrial positioning system called ranging mode (R-Mode) in the Baltic Sea. This new system allows positioning even in times when the global navigation satellite systems fail and provides position, navigation and timing information that is crucial for safe navigation and new maritime applications. R-Mode Baltic 2 launches a long-term evaluation of the test bed and to this end equips ships with R-Mode ready receivers and maritime applications from the R-Mode Baltic project.
