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.
