GNSS Agency Moves to Prague

The European Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Agency is the first EU regulatory body to move its headquarters to the Czech Republic, after having been provisionally located in Brussels.

The Galileo system is comprised of 18 operational satellites, and will start to provide the first ‘European GPS’ services to EU users from the end of 2014, the Industry Commissioner Antonio Tajani has said. Two satellites will be launched from Kourou, French Guyana, on 28 September. These will be added to the first two satellites, which were launched in October 2012, he said. Six others will follow in 2013 and eight others in 2014. The constellation should grow to 26 satellites by 2015, and 30 in 2020.

The programme will cost five billion euro in 2015, said Tajani’s services.
