California, USA, 21 July 2006: Trimble has announced that it has successfully acquired and tracked the L1 BOC (1,1) Galileo GIOVE-A test satellite signal using a combined GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo prototype receiver.

In addition to tracking the test satellite, Trimble has also announced that its Zephyr Geodetic II antenna is compatible with all current or planned GPS and GLONASS frequencies and the planned Galileo signals now. Users can purchase Trimble CORS receivers with the GNSS-ready antenna and be prepared for full GNSS geodetic antenna support when Galileo is available in the future.
