The Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS) is an encrypted navigation service for authorised users and sensitive applications that require high continuity. EUSPA actively contributes to the development of all areas of the PRS user segment to continuously respond to user needs and support a wide and secure use of PRS. In line with this, the Agency has initiated a new procurement procedure for a PRS Signal-in-Space (SIS) Monitoring Tool – PRIMO.
The tender (OJ Contract Notice 2023/S 167-524816) is aimed at designing, developing, deploying, installing, testing, and maintaining two PRIMO tools. The indicative budget for this call is €7.000.000.
The tender documents are available here
The tool (hardware and software) will be able to monitor PRS Signal-in-Space (navigation and security message) that will be used to support PRS operations at the Galileo Security Monitoring Centre (GSMC) sites.
PRIMO is completely independent of the Galileo System, and its use cases include:
- PRS continuity and integrity monitoring,
- Verification of the PRS security message, and
- Radio Frequency monitoring
Informative webinars are scheduled for 12 September and 13 September, both at 15:00 CEST, you can participate by following this link.
Submissions to the call are due 9 October 2023 at 23:59 (Brussels time).
