On Tuesday June 18th, the Galileo Service Center in Madrid relayed the first NAGU (Notice Advisory to Galileo Users).
A NAGU is a small text message informing the users about the "bill of health" of the Galileo satellites constellation, such as the one below.
The emission of this first NAGU is a major step in the Galileo deployment as it introduces the delivery of services to users.
It is a joint effort of ESA, GSA and of the EC service teams.
