Ixoriguè: the solution for livestock management integrating Galileo and Copernicus

18 March 2021
The processing of the Galileo signal in a multi-constellation environment is providing important benefits and opportunities for precision farming, enhancing the performance of livestock and increasing the achieved accuracy in difficult mountain environments. A Spanish company, Ixoriguè, has integrated Galileo in its positioning solution as part of a combined product for livestock management.
GSA publishes High Accuracy Service information update

GSA publishes High Accuracy Service information update

16 March 2021
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) together with the European Commission have published an Information Note on the Galileo High Accuracy Service, providing an overview of the main characteristics of the service, along with information on features such as service levels, target performance, an implementation roadmap, and an overview of the target markets for the service. You can download the Information Note here.
The standard is targeted at service providers and users of the Galileo Return Link Service.

Standard published for remote activation of aircraft distress tracking beacons using the Search and Rescue (SAR) Return Link Service as offered by Galileo

11 March 2021
The EUROCAE “ED-277 - Minimum Aviation System Performance Standard for Aircraft Emergency Locator Transmitter Remote Command Via Return Link Service”  has been published and is available. It describes the characteristics of remote command via the Return Link Service for Emergency Locator Transmitter Distress Tracking  - ELT(DT) - in particular for remote beacon activation and deactivation. Today, only Galileo provides Return Link capability.

Galileo satellite performs collision avoidance manoeuvre

10 March 2021
Under the management of the European GNSS Global Navigation Satellite System Agency (GSA), a collision avoidance manoeuvre for satellite GSAT0219 was performed over the past weekend. This manoeuvre was conducted following a collision risk alert received from EU Space Surveillance and Tracking (EUSST).
OSNMA test signals are being broadcast by the Galileo constellation

Tests of Galileo OSNMA underway

11 February 2021
Galileo has started testing Open Service Navigation Message Authentication (OSNMA) in the signal-in-space, allowing the first-ever OSNMA-protected position fix to be successfully computed. Testing will continue over the next months, ahead of a so-called “public observation” phase. This is the first-ever transmission of authentication features in open GNSS signals of a global navigation system.

Galileo in the permanent CORS network in Sweden: a success story

09 February 2021
SWEPOS is the CORS network for satellite positioning in Sweden. From the introduction of Galileo in its service in 2018, the network users have observed higher availability and better performances, especially when using a high cut off angle or in harsh environments. Connections to SWEPOS network have increased rapidly, and the number of Galileo users in the region continues to grow.
The workshop will gather GSA and Member States representatives and is open to anyone interested in GNSS.

Galileo Workshop 2021: All you need to know about the performance of Europe’s Global Navigation Satellite System

01 February 2021
The Galileo Performance Workshop 2021 led by the European GNSS Agency will offer an in-depth analysis of the performance of Galileo and how it is evaluated for users.
Happy birthday Galileo Search And Rescue (SAR) Return Link Service!

Happy birthday Galileo Search And Rescue (SAR) Return Link Service!

27 January 2021
A year after declared operational, the Galileo Return Link Service has been exceeding the performance levels committed in the SAR/Galileo Service Definition Document. With the recent upgrade in its European ground facilities, Galileo SAR is leading the way as an important component of the International Cospas-Sarsat Programme.
The IPS anticipates any degradation of performance, allowing operators to put in place mitigation measures in good time.

New EC service monitors ionosphere for GNSS users

13 January 2021
Ionospheric effects can be a major source of disruption to GNSS signals, so it is important to be able to predict and compensate for these disturbances. With this in mind, the European Commission-funded Galileo Ionosphere Prediction Service (IPS) monitors ionospheric activity and informs GNSS users in good time of an upcoming event that could disrupt GNSS signals and applications.
