EGNOS open service (OS)
Service definition document
The European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) provides an augmentation service to the Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Positioning Service (SPS). Presently, EGNOS augments GPS using the L1 (1575.42 MHz) Coarse/Acquisition (C/A) civilian signal function by providing correction data and integrity information for improving positioning, navigation and timing services over Europe. This version of the “EGNOS OS Service Definition Document” (EGNOS OS SDD) is intended to give information on the EGNOS Open Service (EGNOS OS). The document describes the EGNOS system architecture... and Signal-In-Space (SIS) characteristics, the OS service performance achieved, and provides information on the established technical and organisational framework, at European level, for the provision of this service. It is intended to be of use for receiver manufacturers, GNSS application developers and the final users of the EGNOS OS.
