Galileo GNSS blog provides the latest news on Galileo, the European Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). 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. This blog is edited by Galileo enthusiast engineers with European Space Agency (ESA) and European GNSS Agency (GSA) collaboration. The Galileo programme, named after the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, is currently being developed by the European Union (EU) and ESA, and 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! 🙂
