Will DJI support Galileo (GNSS) ? According to guys from nolimitdronez, it's possible with software modification.

Say hello to EUs Galileo GNSS system as it is now being introduced on all drones from DJI.
Yes, EU Galileo is a high definition ground tracking system, put in orbit by the European Union.
NLD now offers additional navigation satellites by making your drones GPS receiver capable of understanding the signals from the Galileo satellites system.


Matioupi has proved the theory with a patch to the GO 4 App, awesome job, right there!

The end result = LOTS of satellites for superior stability and precision.

While testing this mod, the drone could use 28 satellites!

That is a pretty rock solid positioning.
(This mod is not ready for release yet)

Great news and looking forward to it being implemented in DJI GO 4! Thank you for sharing it with us.

Galileo isn’t finished yet?...

"Galileo started offering Early Operational Capability (EOC) on 15 December 2016[1], providing initial services with a weak signal, and is expected to reach Full Operational Capability (FOC) in 2019.[11] The complete 30-satellite Galileo system (24 operational and 6 active spares) is expected by 2020."

I don’t see how modifying the go4 app would ever allow the drone to utilize this? The gps unit is on the drone.

Galileo isnt operational yet (2019) and not full capacity until 2020.  Possibly substantially later if the EU use it as a brexit blackmail stick with the UK (who own and run most of their ground stations and control facilities).
By which time you'll all be flying later model drones anyway.

Rather than speech without references :

Galileo initial services have been declared since december 2016 :
https://www.gsa.europa.eu/press- ... ry-initial-services

At time, there are 14 usables satellites in the Sky :
https://www.gsc-europa.eu/system-status/Constellation-Information

4 more are already in the sky since last december and still under commisionning phase (which was planned to last around 6 month) so there should soon be 18 available sats. 4 more will be launched July 25th.

The ublox M8 family GNSS receivers in Spark/Mavic/P4 are capable of GPS+GLO+GAL

Yes I have a patch/method that involves flashing a custom FC + an app side mod that enables Galileo on the birds. Should be public soon.

This leads on a regular basis to 21 to 26 sats reported in the app under open sky environment. usually 2 to 6 more than without. Testing the flight logs clearly shows that GPS count + GLO count < total SV count, and the difference is not "SBAS" (cannot be when difference is 5  or 6). Will be to 2 sats more average in a few days...

It's been operational for a while now:-

there is a channel from app to bird FC, and further forwared to bird GNSS receiver to upload agnss data (assisted gnss, i.e. ephemerids downloaded from the internet used to speed up fixes).

By the way, DJI is using it's own mirror for those data and it's sometime providing very outdated data... basically useless...

Excellent work, thank you for sharing it with us. I know you are a crack in these things. Can the patch be applied to any version of GO 4, or is it a modified GO 4 all together?

Well if you bother to read your own references you'll agree that full operational capacity isnt expected until 2020 and that could be delayed.  Those very references state that.

really, most of them seems to be under U.K. control... (Maybe the Troll one full South, yes, it's real name...)

As far as I know, only the backup control center (indeed a large and critical facility) was supposed to be in London and runned by U.K. Work to relocated it in Spain has already started.

Reason why some maybe operated from the UK is because the UK owns a lot of the technology that goes in to these sats. If the UK doesn't get access to Galileo then there is a good chance the project will get cancelled due to funding.

Fact. Still i couldn't care less either way. Let the rest of the members fund the shortfall in funding and try and complete it.

Well either way - we should have a surfeit of GPS sats in the future as they are an integral part of everything that moves on the ground and in the air. The UK may well build their own system if things go the wrong way with this Brexit shenanigans.

Hello Matioupi,

My name is Holger and I'm from Germany. In our forum
https://www.rc-drohnen-forum.de/ ... 9d5a903057484d4a496
I asked the question if you can also use Galileo with the DJI Mavic Platinum. A user has sent me a reference to the DJI Forum.

Can you tell me the current status of your patch for the GO 4 app and possibly describe how to instal it.

Excuse my english, I wrote this with a translation program. Can you answer in German, if not, then I translate it myself.

Thank you and have a nice Christmas

Holger
