Galileo GNSS website provides the latest news on Galileo, the Europe’s own Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), consisting of both the satellites in space and their associated ground infrastructure.
We want to serve as a platform to share knowledge, ideas and doubts on GNSS not only for the space community, but also for the general public. Edited by Galileo enthusiast engineers, with European Space Agency (ESA) and European GNSS Agency (GSA) collaboration, we aim to assist you, space professional, looking for new career opportunities (visit #Galileojobs).
To maintain an up-to-date vacancy database, we encourage space industry players to share with us your recruitment needs (contact us HERE).
The Galileo programme, named after the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, is currently being developed by the European Union (EU) and ESA. Since July 1st 2017 the GSA took responsibility for overseeing the operations and service provision, which will give Europe independence in satellite navigation.
Guiding blinds in an unknown city, locate people lost at sea, guiding tractors by satellite for higher crop yields with much less fertilizer, reducing fuel and time consumption on the road thanks to a better traffic management, making flights and landings safer… This is not science fiction, these applications are already being tested now.
Welcome to the Galileo community! 🙂
