The European GNSS Service Centre (GSC) has published “Galileo E6-B/C Codes Technical Note” on the GSC web portal. The GSC is part of the European GNSS Agency (GSA).

The document contains the Galileo E6-B and E6-C codes specifications, including primary and secondary codes and their assignment to satellites, which is necessary for manufacturers who are developing Galileo E6-B/C enabled receivers.

The technical note represents the first step for these forthcoming Galileo services: high-accuracy service (HAS) and commercial authentication service (CAS) on E6-B/C signal.

A PDF of the document is available here.
