Galileo Open Service discussion at RIN

A one-day seminar discussing the Galileo Open Service is being organised by the Royal Institute of Navigation (RIN) Space Special Interest Group on the 12th February at the Royal Geographical Society, 1 Kensington Gore in London. Speakers from European organisations, Government, Industry and Users will make this an important event for anyone with an interest in Galileo, the European Global Navigation Satellite System. If you want to find out more about the Galileo Open Service, whether "one size fits all" and discuss the market for the other Galileo services it's worth booking in. SSTL's Phil Davies has been involved in Galileo since 2003, following the European global satellite navigation system's development from the outset of GIOVE and the launch to its first SSTL-built satellite GIOVE-A. His presentation is entitled "The cost benefit of simplifying Galileo". Phil will be joined by fellow expert speakers representing satellite navigation equipment manufacturers and end users who will discuss the interoperability between Police, Fire and Ambulance and the impact of Galileo on Road Safety and separate talks on the closely related road pricing enforcement and inner city congestion charging. The Galileo Open Service (OS) caters for mass-market applications. Similar to the free service currently provided to civilian GPS users, it provides signals for timing and positioning, without user authentication direct to any user with suitable equipment free of charge. For most purposes, cheap single-frequency receivers will be used, but increased accuracy is possible by utilising up to 3 signals. Galileo's Open Service applications will use a combination of Galileo and GPS signals to significantly improve performance in severe environments such as urban areas and offshore areas. The Open Service does not offer integrity information, and the determination of the quality of the signals will be left entirely to the users. There will be no service guarantee or liability from the Galileo Operating Company on the Open Service. For up to date infomrmation, speakers and to register please visit the RIN website.
