Galileo is the world's first satellite navigation system (GNSS) under civilian control and offers encrypted satellite signals, the so-called Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS). The Galileo PRS signals are specially protected and cannot be interfered with or manipulated. Galileo PRS can be made available to authorities and organisations with security tasks, operators of critical infrastructures and authorised users.
General conditions for the use of Galileo PRS
The GEODE (GalileEO for EU DEfence) project aims to create the framework conditions for the use of Galileo PRS in the military sector. In addition to a specification and standardisation phase, further security modules, receivers and antennas are to be developed and tested in specially created test environments.
