Description Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are today a single point of failure for numerous systems in the transport sector which need accurate timing and/or positioning. Especially in the maritime domain many bridge systems depend on the availability of a reliable GNSS based position and time. In areas with high traffic density and/or obstacles near the shipping lane this causes a serious thread for safe operation of the vessels. Therefore, the DLR is developing together with partners a terrestrial maritime backup system, named Ranging Mode (R-Mode), which will be implemented on existing maritime infrastructure. Next steps would be the implementation of a R-Mode receiver and the optimisation of radio beacon ranging signal components which will be added to the legacy radio beacon signal.
