Galileo Security Monitoring Center Developing Counter-Cyber Defenses and Responses

The Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) Europe held a virtual workshop in early September on the topic of “Cybersecurity in and for Space Operations.” Speakers told attendees of the threats posed to vital space systems, including Galileo and GPS, by foreign hackers, cyber warfare and online espionage, and of initiatives to harden satellite capabilities against cyber attacks.

Galileo’s High Accuracy Service: Field Experimentation of Data Dissemination Schemes

Galileo will provide a High Accuracy Service (HAS) with positioning performance in the 20-cm range, disseminating Precise Point Positioning (PPP) corrections through the Galileo E6-B signal. Test results of a data encoding and dissemination scheme in different user environments demonstrate a reception time of the corrections in a few seconds in good channel conditions, and less than half a minute with severe channel impairments.

Galileo Saved in Latest EU Budget Slash

The European Commission cut its space budget for the next seven years but kept the Galileo and Copernicus satellite programs largely on track. The move came after intense negotiations over a 1.8-trillion-euro European Union budget seeking to absorb and remedy economic impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.

UK Acquires OneWeb LEO Constellation, But Won’t Work for SatNav — Or Maybe It Will

Britain has signed a £900 million ($1.135 billion) deal to buy a part share of satellite operator OneWeb, a low-Earth orbit constellation in-the-making, designed to provide global high-speed broadband services. There had been speculation that the government intended thereby to generate its own satellite-based navigation signals, as it has been shut out of Galileo security signals by its Brexit move. Some satnav experts quickly dashed that notion, but others demonstrated that it just may be possible.

Galileo on PATROL for Driver and Road Safety

The Position Authenticated Tachograph foR OSNMA Launch (PATROL) project is developing the first external GNSS facility for smart tachographs, using Galileo’s new Open Service Authentication (OS-NMA). The tachograph, a device fitted to a vehicle that automatically records its speed and distance, together with the driver’s activity selected from a choice of modes, uses Galileo authentication to verify that the navigation data received from satellites is genuine.

Green Lane Speeds Border Crossings of Essential Goods

Galileo Green Lane, a new mobile app, facilitates the free movement of freight, reduces waiting times at European Union borders, and prioritizes essential goods during pandemic response. The app uses Galileo positioning services  to address the needs of border control authorities and truck drivers, with two intuitive user interfaces. The app was developed by the European GNSS Agency (GSA) in collaboration with the European Commission.
