Galileo is Europe’s Global Satellite Navigation System (GNSS), providing users with improved positioning and timing information.


The project has been running since the launch of the first operational Galileo satellites GSAT0101 and GSAT0102 in October 2011. The latest Full Operational Capability (FOC) satellites were launch in December 2017 and there are currently 22 satellites in orbit.


See the full list of satellites here.
