European Global Navigation Satellite Systems (Galileo/EGNOS)

Galileo is the European Union's Global Navigation Satellite System (EGNSS).

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.
