The GIOVE Mission segment, or GIOVE-M, is the name of a project dedicated to the exploitation and experimentation of the GIOVE satellites. The GIOVE Mission is intended to ensure risk mitigation of the In Orbit Validation (IOV) phase of the Galileo positioning system.
GIOVE Mission history
The GIOVE Mission Segment began in October 2005 with the purpose of providing experimental results based on real data to be used for risk mitigation throughout the overall Galileo In Orbit Validation (IOV) phase of the Galileo positioning system.
GIOVE Mission Infrastructure
The GIOVE Mission segment infrastructure has been based on evolution of the Galileo System Test Bed Version 1 (GSTB-V1) infrastructure conceived to process data from the GIOVE-A and GIOVE-B satellites. The GIOVE Mission segment is composed of a central processing facility called the Giove Processing Center (GPC) and a network of thirteen experimental Giove Sensor Stations (GESS).
GIOVE Mission Experimentation
The main objectives of the GIOVE Mission Segment experimentation are in the areas of:
- On-board clock characterisation
- Navigation message generation
- Orbit modelling
- GIOVE mission core infrastructure, ESA press release, 26 February 2007.
- GIOVE System Architecture, GIOVE website.
