1 Fotis Karamitsos, European Commission 27 January 2009 EUROPEAN COMMISSION GALILEO and EGNOS

2 | 2 The EU GNSS programmes Definition Phase IOV Phase Deployment Phase G a l i l e o P r o g r a m m e P h a s e s Definition Phase IOP Phase Long Term Operations,Extensions and Replenishments E G N O S P r o g r am m e P h a s e s Exploitation Phase 1) EGNOS Regional Infrastructure & Services 2) Galileo Global Infrastructure & Services

3 | 3 Galileo – An infrastructure 5 TT&C Stations 9 Mission Uplink Stations 3 Control Centres Galileo Sensor Stations Constellation of 30 MEO Satellites Users & Service Providers

4 | 4 Galileo – 5 services Open Access Commercial Safety of Life Search and Rescue Free to air; Mass market; Simple positioning Encrypted; High accuracy; Guaranteed service Open Service + Integrity and Authentication of signal Encrypted; Integrity; Continuous availability Near real-time; Precise; Return link feasible Public Regulated

5 | 5 Galileo – 5 Services Improved Robustness (vsjamming, spoofing) Dual frequency Public Regulated Service Certified & registered beacons EmergenciesAlmost instantaneous reception of emergency calls Exact positioning of emergency beacon Single frequency Search and Rescue Certified receivers Aviation (en route)As OS + Integrity and authentication of signal Continuity and service guaranty Single frequency (Level B) Safety of Life Service Commercial basis Professional markets (e.g., surveying, precision agriculture) Increased accuracy using additional frequencies and signals Additional features under investigation (e.g., data rate capacity) Double frequency Commercial Service Open High end mass market (e.g., car navigation, maritime) As above + increased accuracy with 2 nd frequency Double frequency Open Low end mass market (e.g., LBS, outdoor) Additional satellites for better multi-system coverage (e.g., deep urban) Coding and modulation advances for increased sensitivity and multi-path mitigation Pilot signal for fast acquisition Single frequency Open Service AvailabilityTarget user groupsBenefitsReceiverService

6 | 6 Galileo Implementation Plan Galileo System Testbed v1 Validate critical algorithms Galileo System Testbed v2 Initial Test Satellites In-Orbit Validation 4 satellites plus ground segment Full Operational Capability 27 (+3) Galileo Satellites

7 | 7 GALILEO re-structuring. Year 2007: re-structuring » Implementation funding secured: 3.4 billion (some 4.7 billion $) » European Commission Fully in charge or EU GNSS programme management Owner » European Space Agency Integrator and project manager for Galileo architect

8 | 8 Galileo Test Satellites | 8 EUROPEAN GNSS PROGRAMMES COMMITTEE. Giove-A launched on 28 December 2005 » Securing of Galileo frequencies » Still operating. Giove-B launched on 27 April 2008 » First maser atomic clock ever flown » Implementation of MBOC signal » Working as expected

9 | 9 GALILEO procurement. Contract notice: 1 July EC procurement rules (subject to WTO agreements on trade). Infrastructure in 6 workpackages. Enter the « Competitive Dialogue » phase. Full Operational Capability in 2013

10 | 10 EGNOS becoming operational EGNOS Satellite Footprints EGNOS Service Area

11 | 11 EGNOS Programme Status. EGNOS is already broadcasting signals of excellent quality. Assets will be transferred from ESA to the European Community. EC will contract an operator in April EGNOS will formally enter into operations in spring EGNOS will be certified by Geographical service extension is under study. EC is finalising the procurement and lease of an EGNOS transponder to replace Artemis as of 2011

12 | 12 EGNOS Performance (ECAC) Source: EUROCONTROL

13 | 13 EGNOS Extensions - MEDA MEDA Extension European Processing Area MEDA region falls within the EGNOS European Processing Area Homogeneous extension Extension of EGNOS network (Addition of 4-6 RIMS) EGNOS Central processing

14 | 14 EGNOS Extensions - ACAC Middle-East Regional Extension European Processing Area ACAC region falls outside of EGNOS European Processing Area Regional extension Extension of GPS integrity monitoring Additional ionospheric monitoring

15 | 15 Conclusions EGNOS is in its Operational Validation Phase Open Service in 2009 Safety of Life Service in 2010 Galileo is in its Development Phase Major EU initiative GIOVE-A, GIOVE-B missions on-going Initial 4 satellites around 2010 Full Operational Capability around 2013 It is time to boost the market penetration of the European GNSS on the market
