Europe has launched the next two satellites in
the Galileo network---its version of the American
Global Positioning System (GPS).
The spacecraft---model numbers five and six---went

Galileo is now finally moving towards full deploy-
ment after years of delay.
The European Space Agency, which is building the
system on behalf of the EU, expects to have a 26-
satellite constellation in orbit by 2017. To that end,
it has just ordered three big Ariane-5 rockets at a
cost of half a billion euros.
Europe s premier launch vehicle can loft four space-
craft at a time, and this should allow for six to eight
satellites to be put in space every 12 months from
"Every spacecraft is, after in-orbit commissioning,
put into operation, and is broadcasting a navigation
signal that is a valid signal for users with a combined
Galileo/GPS receiver; and there are already receivers
on the market that have this capability.
So, you have to see the service as being
increased one by one," explained Esa
Galileo project manager, Javier Bene-
The latest platforms, dubbed Doresa
and Milena in a public competition,
are somewhat different to their four
predecessors, which were used to val-
idate the Galileo technology in orbit.
Formally described as the first Full
Operational Capability (FOC) satellites,
they have been produced by a new
manufacturing consortium, comprising
the German outfit OHB System and
the UK firm SSTL. This pair have been
contracted to supply the next 20 space-
craft as well.
SSTL s role is to integrate all the
Galileo system components inside a
"It s been a high-volume operation,"
said SSTL director John Paffett, "and
we re now turning out a payload every
six weeks. By the middle of next year,
all our payloads will have shipped to
OHB, and it won t be long after that
that all the finished satellites will have
been handed over to Esa."
Esa still has to procure at least four
more satellites to complete a constel-
lation configuration that includes a
number of in-orbit spares.
The EU is investing billions in its
sat-nav project. It believes Galileo will
bring significant returns to European
economies in the form of new busi-
nesses that can exploit precise timing
and location data delivered from orbit.
GPS already underpins a great swathe
of activity, with many uses that are
unseen and therefore largely unrecog-
nised, such as the timing signal s wide-
spread role in synchronising telecom-
munications systems and major
