Improved Global Navigation Satellite System

Galileo improves global navigation

Today with the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) system GPS

Today with the augmentation system EGNOS on top of GPS

Future GPS and Galileo

Clearly Galileo will improve our navigation systems, not only in Europe but globally. As with todays GNSS, the American GPS, the north is not covered well enough. Norway is contributing to improve the systems so that we get the necessary accuracy in the vulnerable arctic as well.
