The main objective of the activity is to setup the Pilot GNSS Science Service Center at ESAC as a first step towards the consolidation of a worldwide reference GNSS Scientific Archive, through the provision of GNSS products and services in an environment that fosters GNSS Science research in Europe, and notably the use of Galileo (and EGNOS) by the scientific community.It aims at integrating information and processing assets from all different GNSS domains into a single Science Exploitation Platform based on SEPP, to deliver advanced information and analysis services.The ESAC IGS Global Data Centre represents the foundation stone to build on a GNSS Science Service Center with innovative services.Therefore, it is expected that the initial set of assets to be integrated in the Pilot GSSC will be focused on the ones available from International GNSS Service. As part of this activity, a higher level of cooperation between ESA and IGS will be pursued with an assessment of additional activities that could be performed by the GSSC in the contextof IGS.
