8. Pilot project “positioning and earth orientation”
Noomen gave an introduction on this pilot project. He reminded the participants on the client, the specific goals and the developments that have taken place during the past 3 years. During the AWG meeting in Lanham, a time schedule was agreed upon, according to which the AWG would be prepared to present an official product on EOPs to the international community by the time of the current meeting in Nice. However, this has not materialized, although the reactions to the Call for Participation have been very good: 7 proposals for analysis contributions and 4 proposals for combination centers were received. The situation will be reviewed after hearing the status reports of the various groups.
