Xavier Maufroid DG-TREN - Galileo Unit European Commission

2 SAR Service: SAR/Galileo Service Early Demonstration
Objectives of the Project Position of Project wrt Cospas-Sarsat Project Activities/ Requirements

3 Objectives of the Project
Support the integration of the Galileo Search and Rescue (SAR) service infrastructure into the COSPAS-SARSAT system in coherence with the MEOSAR initiative (MEOSAR Implementation Plan) Demonstrate Early SAR/Galileo services Forward Link Service Return Link Service

4 SAR/Galileo Service Integration into the Cospas-Sarsat System
Return Link Message in L1 SAR signal (406 MHz) 9 Return Message 2 1 8 Transponded SAR signal (1544 MHz) Activated Emergency Beacon Galileo Ground Segment RLSP 6 Return Link Message Request Rescue Operation Beacon location 5 Return Message Authorization 3 7 Beacon location MEO LUT 4 Mission Control Centre (SAR MCC) Rescue Coordination Centre (RCC) “Cospas-Sarsat Domain”

5 Objective #1: Integration of SAR/Galileo Infrastructure into Cospas-Sarsat System
Galileo FOC Programme will procure the SAR/Galileo infrastructure and operation services: Operational MEOLUTs Procurement MEOLUTs hosting sites and operations Procurement Return Link Service Provider (RLSP) Procurement RLSP hosting site and operations Procurement SAR/Galileo infrastructure needs to be integrated within the Cospas-Sarsat system (e.g. MCC network) to ensure operational services (contribute to rescue operations)

6 Objective #2: Early Service Demonstrations
Incremental SAR/Galileo Return Link Demonstration Validation of operational interfaces between the C/S system, SAR/Galileo infrastructure (MEOLUTs, RLSP) and Rescue Coordination Centres (RCCs) SAR/Galileo End-to-End Demonstration Forward and Return Link Services SAR/Galileo Interoperability Demonstration MEOSAR space segment and ground segment interoperability

7 Position of the Project within Cospas-Sarsat MEOSAR Initiative
Cospas-Sarsat MEOSAR Implementation Plan is articulated around a number of phases: Proof of Concept and In Orbit Validation Phase (PoC/ IOV) Demonstration and Evaluation Phase (D&E) Initial Operations Capability Phase (IOC) Full Operations Capability Phase (FOC) EU is present in Cospas-Sarsat MEOSAR programme development: Strong participation in MEOSAR Expert Working Groups Contribution to all phases of the MEOSAR Implementation Plan (currently PoC/IOV)

8 Position of the Project within Cospas-Sarsat MEOSAR Initiative
The project shall support the D&E Phase of the Cospas-Sarsat MEOSAR Implementation Plan Objectives of the D&E Phase: Validation of the technical and operational performances of the MEOSAR system Characterisation of the SAR/Galileo service (Forward and Return Link) contribution to the MEOSAR system Incremental validation with the continuous deployment of the SAR/Galileo infrastructure

9 Project Main Activities
Definition of demonstration scenarios/ architecture taking into account the gradual deployment of the SAR/Galileo infrastructure Identification and involvement of main actors of the Cospas-Sarsat programme (MCCs, RCCs) in order to ensure that demonstrations are performed within the suitable operational environment Perform necessary modifications on MCCs interfaces in order to allow the integration of the SAR/Galileo infrastructure (for Return Link service) Perform test campaigns and service demonstrations

10 Project Main Requirements
Selection of SAR Partners in the project team Alignment with Cospas-Sarsat MEOSAR implementation plan Alignment with SAR/Galileo infrastructure procurement in the Galileo FOC Programme

11 Conclusions Search and Rescue (SAR) will be one of the first services offered by Galileo as this service can be offered as soon as a few numbers of Galileo satellites are deployed (4 IOV satellites deployed in 2010) Expectations are high for this project to become a first “show case” of the Galileo services
