Abstract: Back in 2012, Mozo et al. [Ref. 1.] presented the results of an experimentation campaign aimed at demonstrating the benefits of using the Galileo signals for real-time Precise Point Positioning (PPP) solutions. Furthermore, magicGNSS, GMV’s suite of GNSS tools and services, was already used to compute one of the first Galileo-only PPP solution in post-processing mode using the four IOV satellites [Ref. 2.]. Now in mid-2016, with 11 Galileo satellites set in orbit and “running”, it is possible not only to analyze more deeply the benefits of processing these satellites to compute a PPP solution, but also to perform real-time Galileo-only PPP with substantially good performances. With the aim of demonstrating the previous statement, GMV has been performing during the last months an extensive experimentation campaign with two main objectives: on the first hand, to evaluate the benefits of introducing the processing of Galileo satellites into a PPP solution and, secondly, to assess the achievable performances for Galileo-only PPP. The purpose of this paper is to present the results of these testing activities and the main conclusions drawn from these results.
