The paper describes the performance comparison between EGNOS system and an Augmentation & Integrity Monitoring Network (AIMN) Location Determination System (LDS) designed for train positioning in terms of PVT accuracy and integrity information. The proposed work is inserted in the scenario of introduction and application of space technologies based on the ERTMS architecture. It foresees to include the EGNOS-Galileo infrastructures in the train control system, with the aim at improving performance, enhancing safety and reducing the investments on the railways circuitry and its maintenance. The performance results will be shown, based on a campaign test acquired on a ring-shaped highway (named Grande Raccordo Anulare (GRA)) around Rome (Italy) to simulate movement of a train on a generic track.
