Improvements in the Galileo Open Service
The Galileo OS has been upgraded with three new features added to its I/NAV message, one of the four message types of broadcast by Galileo satellites.
These new features, known as I/NAV improvements, are now available to all Galileo Open Service users. Starting on 12 August 2023, the gradual process of upgrading the operational Galileo FOC constellation satellites has been finalized, and the I/NAV improvements are openly accessible through the I/NAV message.
Guerric Pont, EUSPA Galileo Exploitation Programme Manager, says “These new features improve the robustness and the time required for Galileo navigation data demodulation. In challenging environments, they enhance the Galileo OS capability to solve the user clock uncertainty”.
