FOC satellites 'Galileo 8 and 7' with SV-ID 22 and 26 (FOC satellites) are now transmitting ephemeris on navigation data.

 

Today an IFEN NTR receiver has calculated a position fix with SV-ID 22 first time in combination with three virtual Galileo satellites from GATE on E1 as well as on E5a and E5b. Position accuracy was about 1 meter for E5a and about 4 meters for E1 and E5b.

 

For this test GATE is now synchronized to Galileo System Time from SV-ID 22. Navigation data from SV-ID 22 is currently flagged unhealthy.

 

FOC Satellites SV-ID 22 and 26 have been launched on March 27th, 2015.
