European GNSS Agency (GSA)
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
- other tasks, such as:
- managing satellite navigation research under the EU research programme
- promoting sat nav applications and services
certifying system components.
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.
