Finding your place

Satellite Navigation refers to a constellation of satellites providing signals from space that
transmit positioning and timing data. Specific receivers use this data to calculate the user's
location.
The wide variety of satellite navigation application fields reflect the manifold opportunities made
possible by this future‐oriented technology: from healthcare and leisure to traffic management
and transport logistics, individuals and entire industries alike can benefit from satellite
navigation.
Galileo is Europe’s Global Satellite Navigation System (GNSS) providing accurate positioning and
timing information on a global level. Under civilian control, the system is autonomous but also
compatible with existing satellite navigation systems. The Galileo constellation currently consists
of 22 satellites and is expected to reach its full operational capability by 2020. The European
programme boosts innovation, contributing to the creation of many new products and services,
creating jobs and allowing Europe to own a greater share of the EUR 175 billion global GNSS
market (Source: GSA Market Report).
