European Global Navigation Satellite Systems (Galileo/EGNOS)
What is Galileo?
Together with the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS), Galileo provides accurate positioning and timing information. Galileo is a programme under civilian control and its data can be used for a broad range of applications. It is autonomous but also interoperable with existing satellite navigation systems. By 2020, the Galileo constellation, consisting of 30 satellites, will reach full operational capability.
