Third Galileo IS OS Quarterly Performance Report now available

on 22 December 2017

The European GNSS Agency (GSA) has published the third Galileo IS OS Performance Report with information on the status of the Galileo constellation. It covers the period from July to September 2017 and can be accessed online, on the GSC web portal.

The document provides the public with the latest information on the Galileo Open Service measured performance statistics and reports on the following parameters, with respect to their Minimum Performance Levels (MPLs) declared in the OS Service Definition Document (OS SDD).

The Galileo Open Service is a free mass market service for positioning, navigation and timing that can be used by Galileo enabled chipsets in, for example, smartphones or in-car navigation systems. As in the first two quarters of the year, the measured Galileo Initial Open Service performance figures for the third quarter of 2017 generally exceed the MPL targets by significant margins.

More details are available in the report.

Galileo represents the European Union’s (EU) programme for the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), which is comprised of five services: The Open Service, the Public Regulated Service, the Search and Rescue and contributions to the integrity-monitoring service. The main institution responsible for the implementation of the Galileo programme is the European Commission, but the Initial Services are provided by the European GNSS Agency. The European Space Agency (ESA) is responsible for launching the satellite constellation, as well as providing the technical services for the programme.
