Galileo: en route to full operational capability

Soon another pair of Galileo satellites launched on top of a Soyuz from Europe spaceport in French Guiana. These satellites the first of the so-called ‘Batch 3’.  They comprise of 12 additional first-generation Galileo satellites commissioned in 2017 to bring the constellation to full operational capability. The satellites used to further expand the constellation up to 38 satellites and act as backups and spares for satellites that reach their end-of-life.

This 11th Galileo launch also marks the 10 year anniversary of the first launch of the Galileo operational satellites.  Ten years later Galileo is the most accurate satellite navigation system in the world.  It is available on every recent smartphone and device. It is also two decades since satellite navigation was first introduced as a completely new activity in the European space sector.
