[Satellite TODAY 02-18-10] Axio-Net, an Astrium Services subsidiary, won a contract to provide satellite positioning data services to the German and Danish governments for the development of a 19-kilometer road and rail link between the islands of Fehmarn, Germany and Lolland, Denmark — the Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link, Astrium announced Feb. 17.
    Axio-Net will establish and operate a four-station GNSS reference network across the proposed construction site, which will aim to provide positioning data to engineers during the build. Construction of the reference stations is underway.
    Axio-Net said it won the contract after the German and Danish Governments ratified a treaty to develop a fixed link between the two countries in 2009. “The Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link represents a significant technical challenge. Precision engineering is crucial for a project that spans two countries with Axio-Net playing a key role from start to finish,” Astrium Services CEO Eric Béranger said in a statement.  
    Financial details of the contract were not disclosed.
