Shortly after the switching on of the test payload carried by a recently launched GPS satellite, scientists from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) succeeded for the first time in the world in receiving the new navigation signal, using the 30-metre antenna at the German Space Operations Center (GSOC) in Weilheim. The scientists conducted a high precision analysis of the signal and proved, independently of the US operator, the additional benefits of the L5 signal
