European GNSS Agency

This body, established in 2004, manages a range of activities relating to Europe's satellite positioning and navigation programmes (including Galileo and EGNOS):

  • preparing for the successful commercialisation and exploitation of the systems, aiming at smooth functioning, seamless service provision and high market penetration
  • ensuring the security accreditation of the system & establishment and operation of the Galileo Security Monitoring Centres

Due to its knowledge, competence and expertise the agency is in a unique position to ensure Europe fully reaps the benefits of EGNOS and Galileo, which has the potential to become a cornerstone of the global radio navigation and positioning system and to contribute in a unique manner to the creation of jobs and economic growth.
