The European GNSS Agency (GSA) is working with the European Commission (EC) and the European Space Agency with the support of the EU Member States to define the final characteristics of the future Galileo Commercial Service. Input from industry as well as other actors, such as users and academia, is valuable to define the service and the rationale behind the implementation of the service.

The Galileo Commercial Service, which potentially addresses the authentication and high-precision market segments, will deliver innovative services with improved performance and greater added-value than those obtained through the Open Service.

Consultation participants will be asked to provide a more general perspective about the Commercial Service, as well as validate the main aspects of a preliminary business case developed in cooperation with the EC. Respondents are welcome to propose new ideas and approaches for the service provision, as well as discuss pricing, liability, service level agreements, and required performance levels.

The consultation will be open until the end of September 2012. A final decision on the Commercial Service implementation concept will be reached at the beginning of 2013.
