7.4       GALILEO


Support to the European global satellite navigation system (Galileo) and
EGNOS

The activities related to Galileo will be implemented by the GNSS Supervisory Authority that
has been established by Council Regulation1. All information relating to research activities is
available on the website2.

The European Global Navigation Satellite System, encompasses Galileo and EGNOS, and
provides a worldwide positioning and timing infrastructure

New satellite navigation applications are being developed everyday, covering numerous
sectors of the world economy. The expected global market in products and services will likely
reach EUR 400 billions in 2020. The activities will give European industries the right
opportunities to acquire the knowledge and expertise required in a strong international
competing environment. Small and Medium Enterprises are key players for innovation in this
sector.

The European infrastructure is being implemented in an incremental way. The overall GNSS
performances will gradually improve, allowing the smooth development of receiver
technologies and applications. The set of activities will follow the incremental build up of the
infrastructure, i.e. EGNOS in 2009, four satellites for in orbit validation in 2011, and the full
30-satellites constellation in 2013. The activities will build on existing infrastructure
elements, including ground-based test and verification facilities.

The “Evolution programme” of the European Space Agency will maintain the technology at
the state-of-the-art level. The activities within European GNSS Supervisory Authority and
European Space Agency will be coordinated.

The European GNSS, as a global navigation system, has a strong international dimension. All
activities will fully take into consideration the cooperation frame established with partner
countries in order to promote the use of the European Navigation system worldwide.

The following research areas will be implemented by the European GNSS Supervisory
Authority, through calls with specific topics.

For doing so, an amount of EUR 40 million should be transferred to the European GNNS
Supervisory Authority, for the year 2008.
The present document provides the topics deemed to be open in 2008. However, some of them
are closely linked with several topics open in the first call in 2007. The evaluation of the first
