This work presents recent and ongoing updates to the free and open-source advanced interactive multi-purpose package for processing and analysing Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data, named GNSS-Lab Tool suite (gLAB). The updates have been performed in the framework of two projects funded by the European Space Agency (ESA), namely, the “gLAB upgrade for European Geostationary Navigation Overlay System (EGNOS) Data processing” and “Upgrade of gLAB Tool for Double Frequency Multi-Constellation (DFMC)”. We examine various sets of results obtained with actual data using the Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) corrections and the Differential GNSS (DGNSS) mode. Specifically, we introduce the Global Monitoring System (GMS) that routinely assesses the performance of the SBAS and DGNSS solutions using multiple station networks. That is, the Stanford-ESA integrity diagram, the Worst Integrity Ratio (WIR) maps, continuity risk, among other types of performance monitoring. Lastly, we present the ongoing update to the gLAB tool that focusses on the implementation of multi-frequency and multi-constellation data processing capabilities.
