This 21 August ESA will launch 2 more Galileo satellites on a Soyuz rocket from  Europe’s spaceport in Kourou.

These satellites mark the beginning of a new phase in the Galileo saga, the deployment phase. This phase will secure the completion of the constellation thanks to accelerated production of satellites and supported by regular launches.

At the same time ESA and the European Union also look toward the future and are preparing the evolution of Galileo.

This video explains what is the future of Satellite Navigation in Europe. It includes an interview with Didier Faivre, Director of Navigation programmes at ESA in English and French.
