Galileo OSNMA Public Observation Final Workshop: lessons learned ahead of service declaration

Galileo OSNMA Public Observation Final Workshop: lessons learned ahead of service declaration

After several months of intensive testing and continuous improvement, the Galileo OSNMA Public Observation Test Phase is coming to an end. During this period, receiver manufacturers and application developers from different market segments were able to design their own OSNMA solutions and validate the service’s performance in various scenarios. The feedback provided by involved stakeholders has been key to fine-tuning the data authentication mechanism throughout the testing phase. An updated version of Galileo OSNMA Receiver Guidelines for the Test Phase has been issued in October 2022 and can be downloaded from GSC electronic library

As a conclusion of the Public Observation Test Phase, EUSPA will host a final workshop to gather and get feedback from the community. 

It is taking  place online on 16 February 2023 from 1.00 pm to 5.30 pm

A preliminary agenda for the event can be found here. Participants will be able to present how they implemented  OSNMA , learn key aspects of the service tested and discover what is coming for OSNMA in the next months. In preparation for the service provision phase, the Galileo OSNMA Receiver Guidelines for Service Phase have been published in December 2022. 

EUSPA and EC experts will share the main takeaways of this important phase for the Galileo authentication service. In addition, the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) will present an overview of the results obtained using non nominal test vector scenarios. Key E-GNSS actors will discuss their test results, and specific use cases will be presented by selected market stakeholders. The last part of the workshop will present two different approaches for the implementation of OSNMA in smartphones.
