GALILEO

Galileo  is  the  European  Union’s  autonomous  Global  Navigation  Satellite  System  (GNSS)  designed to be interoperable with other existing GNSS systems, in particular the United States Global Positioning System (GPS).

The main services that have already been specified for Galileo are the following:

·         Open  Service  (OS) - provides position  and  timing  signals,  free  of  user  charge.  Performance will be competitive with, but complementary to, GPS to enable dual constellation usage.

·         Public Regulated Service (PRS) - provides position and timing to specific government-designated users requiring a high continuity of service. Access to this service will be controlled with the encryption of the space signals and usage of approved receivers that have the signal decryption keys.

·         Search and Rescue Services (SAR) - Galileo will improve the time to detection and the accuracy of location of distress beacons over the current Search and Rescue services provided by COSPAS-SARSAT. It will also provide an acknowledgement to the user of receipt of the distress message.
