NAVIS Centre has been officially certified by ESA as one of the first 50 institutions that have acquired position fixes using solely available Galileo satellites, among 3 in Asia (together with Japan and China) and being the only one in South East Asia. The campaign was carried out in March 2013, when all four Galileo satellites travelled over Hanoi, Vietnam.

The position fixes were calculated using NAVISOFT Receiver – a fully software receiver developed by NAVIS Centre, can operate with GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, Beidou. NAVISOFT can either operate in single system mode, GPS+Galileo mode in realtime. The receier is developed on Windows environment.

The recognition is one of the important milestones not only for NAVIS’s Software RX Team, but also for NAVIS Centre itself.

Galileo is a GNSS currently being built by the EU and ESA, for civilian use only. So far, four In-Orbit Validation (IOV) satellites have been launched and operational, named PFM, FM2, FM3 and FM4. For more information on Galileo’s build up, please visit the ESA Navigation website at
