Caption: Galileo navigation satellite. Computer artwork of one of the navigation satellites for the European Galileo network. Earth is seen reflected in some of the solar panels (upper left). Galileo will be a civilian global positioning system (GPS) that will consist of 30 satellites orbiting over 23,000 kilometres above the Earth. Galileo will be more accurate than, and compatible with, the other GPS systems. Applications include car, train and aircraft guidance, rescue services, and road use taxation. It is scheduled to operate from 2008.
