Description

Another pair of Galileo navigation satellites is scheduled for launch by a Soyuz rocket this 24 May from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana, bringing the Galileo system a step closer to operational use.

The European Commission asked ESA to speed up the deployment of the constellation and to increase it’s robustness for delivering initial services.

A total of 12 satellites has been deployed into orbit during the last four years –six in the last year alone.

This A&B Roll gives an overview of Galileo and shows Galileo 13 and 14 in preparation in Kourou.

It includes an interview with Paul Verhoef, ESA Director of the Galileo Programme and Navigation-related Activities
