The Galileo High Accuracy Service (HAS) is now operational offering unprecedented accuracy for positioning.
One step closer to OSNMA: SIS ICD and Receiver Guidelines just released

21 December 2022

The Galileo OSNMA SIS ICD and the Galileo OSNMA Receiver Guidelines have been published. They specify the baseline applicable to the OSNMA service provision phase that will start after the OSNMA Service Declaration. Its publication allows the OSNMA user community to prepare for the OSNMA service provision phase in advance of the OSNMA Service Declaration.
New version of the OSNMA Receiver Guidelines is released

16 November 2022

The new version of the OSNMA Receiver Guidelines for the Test Phase provides test vectors and sample data supporting the verification of the OSNMA functionality implementation. It also clarifies the concept of “slow MAC”.
Faster and more robust: three I/NAV improvements to upgrade the Galileo Open Service

27 October 2022

The Galileo Open Service (OS) is being upgraded with three new features being added to the I/NAV message, which is one of four message types broadcast by Galileo satellites. Collectively referred to simply as I/NAV improvements, these features will be available free of charge to all Open Service users.
Galileo Performance Reports of Q2-2022 available for download!

25 October 2022

The Galileo Open Service (OS) and the Enhanced Search and Rescue (SAR)/Galileo Service Performance Reports of the second quarter of 2022 (covering April, May, and June 2022) are available at the Electronic Library of the European GNSS Service Centre web portal.
We want to hear from end users like you: the EGNOS and Galileo Survey is now open

24 October 2022

Our mission is to link space to user needs, but to do that, we need to hear from you. The EUSPA Galileo and EGNOS User Satisfaction Survey is your chance to tell us what you think about the two programmes and share your thoughts on how to make the services they provide even better.
How good is Galileo? Check the Performance Reports to find out!

20 September 2022

Every quarter, the Galileo Service Centre publishes Performance Reports on the Galileo Open Service (OS) and Search and Rescue (SAR) Service. These reports provide the public with statistics on the delivery and quality of the Galileo Services. Users can access quantitative information on a range of parameters specific to each service. This allows them to better understand how well the Galileo services are performing, relative to minimum targets specified in the service definitions.
Updated metadata information for Galileo satellites GSAT0223 and GSAT0224

7 September 2022

The European GNSS Service Centre (GSC) has updated the Galileo Satellite Metadata information to account for Galileo satellites GSAT0223 (SVID 34) and GSAT0224 (SVID 10), both of which were successfully launched on 5 December 2021 at 01:19 CET. 
EUSPA welcomes Shriya satellite to the Galileo family!

The Galileo satellite GSAT0224 entered into service on 29 August. The satellite is named ‘Shriya’, after a Norwegian grade school student who won the Galileo drawing competition organised by the European Commission and the Norwegian Space Agency.
The Galileo Almanac: the clue for satellite tracking

14 July 2022

The Galileo almanac is a set of Keplerian parameters that allows to reconstruct satellite position coordinates only approximately, whilst having quite long period of validity compared to the so-called ephemeris coefficients. A coarse information about where the Galileo satellites are is necessary for the receiver or smartphone to know which satellites are potentially visible and therefore, it allows to reduce the time of their signal acquisition and subsequent tracking process. The almanacs are broadcast within the navigation message, and they can be also downloaded from the GNSS Service Center web site.
