GOOSE V2 with NavIC L- and S-band processing

Currently, the Indian navigation system NavIC in S-band is only supported by a few receivers, especially not monitoring receivers. Compared to standard GNSS signals in L-band, supporting NavIC in S-band requires additional hardware to handle the further frequency. This signal path can also be used for the E6 signal from Galileo and thus for the Galileo HAS service. Galileo HAS is a service that enables highly accurate positioning even without additional correction data.

The new receiver developed in the GOOSE-NavIC project can therefore be used both to support the Indian navigation system NavIC and to integrate the Galileo HAS service.

Project Goals

  • Development of a combined L- and S-band antenna
  • Development of a GOOSE V2 quad-frequency receiver
  • Processing of NavIC signals in L5 and S-band
  • Integration of HDDM filters in GOOSE V2 to suppress jamming
  • Preparation of GOOSE V2 for Galileo E6 HAS (quad band: L1/E1, L2, L5/E5 and E6)


The project goal of updating the GOOSE system to a new version (v2) was achieved. An L- and S-band antenna was developed, constructed and tested in the GOOSE-NavIC project.
