NovAtel Inc. has been awarded part of a nearly $670,000 contract from the Canadian Space Agency to establish sites in Canada to monitor the Galileo GIOVE test satellites. Galileo is the European Union's global navigation satellite system. The work includes a parallel cooperative effort to integrate the NovAtel Galileo Test Receiver (GTR), developed for the CSA, into the GIOVE-A Galileo Experimental Sensor Station (GESS), to upgrade the GTR capabilities and to field these GESS stations in Canada.
