GALILEO SIGNALS ACQUIRED!

New Galileo Satellites - Experiment on Galileo Signals Acquisition December 12, 2011. Today, the two Galileo IOV satellites started transmitting their payload signals. The NavSAS Researchers were able to acquire and track these E1 signals (PRN 11 from Galileo OS ICD) starting from 14.55 CET, using a fixed rooftop antenna (a professional active antenna, located at ISMB premises in Torino @ latitude = 45°03'54.98767" N, longitude = 7°39'32.28920" E, height = 311.9667 m) the software receiver N-Gene and some MATLAB® routines. On www.navsas.eu you may find the graphical results of this “historical” data acquisition.
