Impact of SISMA computation algorithm on user integrity performance

Abstract : The European satellite navigation system GALILEO will provide radionavigation signals for a variety of applications. Safety Of Life users will get a safe navigation service through ranging signals carrying integrity information. The Galileo Integrity Baseline algorithm includes the transmission of three parameters allowing users to monitor their integrity level. These parameters are the Signal-In-Space Accuracy (SISA: prediction of the minimum standard deviation of a Gaussian distribution overbounding the Signal-In-Space error in the fault-free case), the Signal-In-Space Monitoring Accuracy (SISMA: minimum standard deviation of a Gaussian distribution overbounding the difference between Signal- In-Space error and its estimation by ground control stations) and the Integrity Flag, which accounts for satellite status (it can be set to 'OK', 'DON'T USE' or 'NOT MONITORED'). These parameters are part of the input of the user integrity algorithm, which computes user integrity risk at the alert limit and compares it to the Integrity Risk requirement corresponding to user's phase of flight. The work presented in this paper studies the influence of the algorithm used for computation of SISMA on user integrity and system availability. The algorithms used to compute SISMA are the reference Least-Squares and several robust methods, designed to reject wrong measurements and decrease ground system False Alarm rate (fault-free satellites flagged 'DON'T USE').
