In the last few years, the so-called flyby anomaly has been widely discussed, but remains still an illusive topic. This is due to the harsh conditions experienced during an Earth flyby as well as due to the limited data available. In this work, we assess the possibility of confirming and characterizing this anomaly by resorting to the scientific capabilities of the future Galileo constellation.
