Galileo Office Opened In Brussels

The European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Commission have opened an office for the Galileo navigation satellite program in Brussels. Galileo is planned to be a next-generation satellite-based navigation and precision timing system. The Program office will coordinate studies currently under way, make preparations for decisions by the management board directing the program, provide technical support to the board and the industrial and scientific teams working on Galileo, and prepare the way for decisions on the transition to the implementation phase.

The definition phase of the Galileo program is being run by the European Commissionís Directorate-General for Energy and Transport, with the European Space Agency as an equal partner in the joint management board and playing a full role in technical development. The new Galileo Program Office will serve as the central source of expertise and permanent point of contact for coordination between the various participants and parts of the program.

The address of the Galileo Programme Office is 24-26 Rue De Mot, Brussels, Belgium.
