Galileo service to extend Fugro positioning capabilities

Users of Fugro’s G4 satellite correction service will be able to benefit from extended Galileo functionality following the launch of Europe’s satellite navigation system’s ‘initial services’ capability.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Fugro’s G4 service, launched in February 2015, was the first to utilise all available global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) – GPS, GLONASS and BeiDou. The company says that from its launch date the service was prepared for Galileo, and Fugro’s G4 users now have access to almost 80 satellites from the four GNSS systems.

“Fugro has an enviable track record when it comes to delivering the benefits of innovative global navigation systems,” said Anders Haneborg, Fugro’s commercial manager.

“Crucially, we were the first to use all of the existing global navigation systems when we launched our G4 satellite correction service in February 2015. Now G4 service users will be among the first to benefit from the 11 additional satellites available via Galileo’s initial services operations.”{/mprestriction}
