On 21 August, ESA will launch two more Galileo satellites on a Soyuz rocket from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana.
These satellites mark the beginning of a new phase for Galileo, 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.
