Spaceopal takes over maintenance of the European GNSS Service Centre (GSC)
Spaceopal has successfully passed the Maintenance Handover Review (MHOR) for the Level 2 and 3 Maintenance of the European GNSS Service Centre (GSC) in Torrejón de Ardoz (outside Madrid, Spain).
Following this achievement, the responsibility for in-depth troubleshooting and problem resolution of the GSC Ground Infrastructure will be transferred on the 1st of March 2019 from a GSA-held GSC Infrastructure contract to Spaceopal and its Core Team member DLR GfR, responsible in the GSOp industrial organisation also for L2/L3 maintenance activity.
„Taking over this responsibility will allow us to react much quicker to anomalies in a more flexible way, directly improving operations and the service that the European GNSS Agency (GSA) provides to the Galileo end users“, states Christian Hessmann, Engineering Manager at Spaceopal.
After more than 1,5 years of successful GSOp Galileo Service Operations, this milestone marks the beginning of a number of planned Level 2 and 3 Maintenance Handover campaigns to Spaceopal.
