The SAR/Galileo Service Centre is the designated hosting site of the SAR/Galileo Data Service Provider (SGDSP), the Entity responsible for the SAR/Galileo Service operation, maintenance and monitoring.
To fully implement its functions, SGDSP has established operational interfaces to the relevant Cospas-Sarsat (C/S) Mission Control Centres (MCCs) using the free-text Subject Indicator Type (SIT) number 605 format defined in document C/S A.002. Such notifications, hereinafter named Notice Advisory to SAR/Galileo Users (NASU), may include up-to-date ground and space status information, planned and unplanned outages, relevant maintenance activities, tests and/or any relevant information regarding the commissioning/decommissioning of SAR/Galileo System elements and/or capabilities.
In addition to the distribution to the C/S operational entities, NASUs are also published in the table below for increased awareness. The SAR/Galileo users are reminded of the importance of the published NASUs and that they shall be taken into account when using the SAR/Galileo Service.
