Galileo goes live!

15th of December 2016

On 15 December 2016, Europe's satellite navigation system Galileo will start offering its initial services to public authorities, businesses and citizens. COREGAL will continue testing activities with latest available satellites.


COREGAL Presentation

30th of September 2016

Technical presentation with first GNSS-R results on static environment available here


ION GNSS+ 2016 Conference

2nd of May 2016

COREGAL paper accepted for oral presentation at the ION GNSS+ 2016 conference in Portland, Oregon, September 14, 2016 in Session B2 "Remote Sensing, Space Applications, Timing, and Clock Technology" .


SARGO Instrument

2nd October 2015

SARGO GNSS-R instrument prototype installed on VTS tower in Lisbon, for continuous recording of GNSS-R data. Learn more about the instrument in http://sargo.deimos.com.pt


ION GNSS+ 2015

14th - 18th September 2015

DEIMOS will present GNSS-R results in ION GNSS 2015 event.  Current status of the SARGO System and the results obtained with SARGO Instrument is presented. GNSS-R observables obtained with Galileo E5 are compared with observables obtained with current GPS L1 signals and Galileo E1, in terms of ranging accuracy . Taking into account the results obtained with Galileo E5, the expected benefits of using Galileo E5 signals for GNSS-R applications in terms accuracy improvement of the estimated sea level are shown. COREGAL leaflets have also been presented at booth 321 in ION GNSS 2015, Tampa Florida, USA.
