The Galileo High Accuracy Service (HAS) is now available!
The new ground-breaking service of the EU’s positioning system is now available as announced by European Commissioner for Internal Market, Thierry Breton, during the annual European Space Conference in Brussels, Belgium. The entry into service of the Galileo High Accuracy Service (HAS) brings the European Union satellite system to an unprecedented level offering user a sub-meter accuracy over most parts of the globe.
Galileo HAS increases the accuracy of #Galileo to sub-meter levels, becoming the first constellation worldwide able to provide a high-accuracy service globally and directly through the Signal in Space (SiS). The precise corrections provided by the Galileo High Accuracy Service will allow users of the service to reduce the error associated with the orbit and clocks provided through the Galileo Open Service broadcast navigation messages.
This new Galileo service will become a pillar of EU sectorial policies for which precise positioning is needed, and it will as well strengthen sectors where precise navigation is key, like agriculture or drones, also boosting innovation.
As a Core Member of the industrial group led by the Italian-German company SpaceOpal GmbH, Ineco is part of the Galileo Service Operator (GSOp) project at the European GNSS Service Centre (GSC), located at the facilities of the National Institute for Aerospace Technology (INTA) in Torrejón de Ardoz (Spain). Ineco is responsible for the first level operation and maintenance of the systems deployed at the GSC for the provision of its services, as well as the management of the Centre's hosting services.
