First scintillation data from the Galileo Global Navigation Satellite System recorded at SA Antarctic base

Polar travelling in Antarctica may become significantly safer thanks to the DemoGRAPE instrumentation recently deployed at the South African Antarctic base, SANAE IV.

In January 2016 these instruments recorded ionospheric scintillations for the first time along signal paths from the European Galileo GNSS network.
The aim of this international initiative is to improve the accuracy of satellite navigation in the Polar Regions and develop new scientific and technological applications in Antarctica.
