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

9 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.
