Class GalileoScale

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, TimeScale

    public class GalileoScale
    extends ConstantOffsetTimeScale
    Galileo system time scale.

    By convention, TGST = UTC + 13s at Galileo epoch (1999-08-22T00:00:00Z).

    This is intended to be accessed thanks to TimeScales, so there is no public constructor.

    Galileo System Time and GPS time are very close scales. Without any errors, they should be identical. The offset between these two scales is the GGTO, it depends on the clocks used to realize the time scales. It is of the order of a few tens nanoseconds. This class does not implement this offset, so it is virtually identical to the GPS scale.
