ESOC’s Navigation Support Office generated the first Precise Orbit Determination for FOC Galileo Satellite – GALSAT 202

On Thursday, 19 March 2015, the Navigation Support Office located at the ESA’s European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt (Germany), performed the first Precise Orbit Determination (POD) of the second FOC Galileo Satellite – GALSAT 202. The POD for Galileo 202 was based on the processing of signals in the L-Band, transmitted by the Galileo satellite and received by the Navigation Support Office’s global distributed GNSS sensor station network in conjunction with data from the International GNSS Service (IGS) network of sensor stations, used in the context of the MGEX experiment.
