The GEO6 project aims at fostering possible novel applications within the scientific UC of GNSS signals, and particularly of GalileoHP G72-102SA Battery.
Galileo (satellite navigation)
Galileo is a satellite navigation system currently being built by the European Union (EU) and European Space Agency (ESA). HP G62-a04EA Battery The €20 billion project is named after the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei. One of the aims of Galileo is to provide a high-precision positioning system upon which European nations can rely, independently from the Russian GLONASS, US GPS, and Chinese Compass systems, which can be disabled in times of war or conflict.

When in operation it will use two ground operations centers near Munich, Germany and in Fucino, Italy.
On 21 October 2011 the first two of four operational satellites were launched to validate the system. The next two will follow in 2012. Once this In-Orbit Validation (IOV) phase has been completed, HP G62-a10EV Batteryadditional satellites will be launched to reach Initial Operational Capability (IOC) around mid-decade. Full completion of the 30 satellites Galileo system (27 operational + 3 active spares) is expected by 2019.
Basic navigation services will be free of charge. Galileo is intended to provide horizontal and vertical positions measurements within 1 meter precision, HP G62-a10SA Batteryand better positioning services at high latitudes than other positioning systems. As a further feature, Galileo will provide a unique global Search and Rescue (SAR) function. Satellites will be equipped with a transponder which will relay distress signals from the user’s transmitter to the Rescue Co-ordination Centre, HP G62-a11SA Batterywhich will then initiate the rescue operation. At the same time, the system will provide a signal to the user, informing them that their situation has been detected and that help is on the way. This latter feature is new and is considered a major upgrade compared to the existing GPS and GLONASS navigation systems, HP G62-a11SE Batterywhich do not provide feedback to the user. The use of basic (low-precision) Galileo services will be free and open to everyone. The high-precision capabilities will be available for paying commercial users and for military use.
