Salvaged Galileo performs its first navigation fix
from GPS World
Galileo's fifth satellite — recently salvaged from the wrong orbit to begin navigation testing — has been combined with three predecessors to provide its first position fix. Test receivers at ESA's technical centre in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, and at the Galileo In-Orbit Test station at Redu in Belgium received the signals at 12:48 GMT on Dec. 9 from the quartet of satellites and fixed their horizontal positions to better than two meters.
