Image8 Dic 2016 Galileo satellites 13 and 14 have begun transmitting navigation signals as fully operational members of Europe’s satnav constellation. The two were launched together from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana on 24 May.

11 Nov 2016 Europe’s next four Galileo navigation satellites are together on their dispenser atop the Ariane 5 launcher due to launch them next Thursday from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana.

Having been attached to their dispenser as a combined ‘upper composite’, the four 715 kg satellites were transported to the final assembly building on 31 October.

30 aug 2016 The first Ariane 5 rocket modified to carry four Galileo satellites into orbit has arrived at Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana for a November launch. So far, 14 Galileo satellites have been launched two by two on Soyuz rockets from French Guiana. This inaugural launch by Ariane 5 will boost that number to 18. The MN Colibri roll-on/roll-off ship, built to transport European rocket elements, reached French Guiana’s Pariacabo Port on 22 August. The cargo included Ariane’s cryogenic core stage, its upper stage and payload fairing.

Image24 May 2016 Named for the astronomer who pinpointed Earth’s true position in the Solar System, the Galileo satellite navigation system that will help Europe find its way in the 21st century now has 14 satellites in orbit after today’s double launch.

17 Dec 2015 The pace of deploying Europe’s own satellite navigation system continued to increase with today’s launch of the latest pair of Galileo satellites, doubling the number of satellites in space within nine months.

Galileo 11 and 12 lifted off together at 11:51 GMT (12:51 CET, 08:51 local time) atop a Soyuz rocket from French Guiana.

2 Nov 2015 The next Galileo launch campaign has begun with the arrival of the latest pair of navigation satellites at Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana.

Their arrival is the start of a busy schedule that will culminate with their launch on a Soyuz rocket on 17 December – the third Galileo launch of the year.

The GALILEO Information Centre for Latin America is an initiative of the Directorate General for Enterprise and Industry (DG ENTR) of the European Commission, to promote and raise awareness on the Galileo project and GNSS activities in general in the Latin American (LA) region.

Started in 2005, this new phase of the Centre will develop activities until December 2016 and it is participated by key stakeholders in government, research and industry.

The GALILEO Information Center is funded by the DG ENTR through the LATINO project under grant agreement 84/G/ENT/SAT/13/7028 and it is managed by Pildo Labs
