The European GNSS Service Centre has issued Notice Advisories to Galileo Users announcing the completion of a ground segment upgrade and system testing as of 1 April 2015. The three fully operational Galileo satellites (GSAT0101, GSAT0102, and GSAT0103) have been declared available from 1 April 2015 at 00:00 UTC.

  • GSAT0101 (ID:11) payload on PHM clock
  • GSAT0102 (ID:12) payload on RAFS clock
  • GSAT0103 (ID:19) payload on PHM clock
  • GSAT0104 (ID:20) is still considered unavailable as it only transmits an E1 signal.
  • GSAT0201 (ID:18) and GSAT0202 (ID:14), although now in improved orbits, have not been declared available.

Meanwhile, the two recently launched satellites (GSAT0203 and GSAT0204) are slowly drifting to their assigned orbits. They are not yet transmitting standard L-band signals.
