Project Galileo, a joint initiative of the EU and European Space Agency (ESA), has gone live, with global connectivity supplier HUBER+SUHNER on-board. The Switzerland-based company is supplying radio frequency components to the project, and following an extensive testing period and 17 years of development, the Galileo system went live with the aim to supply the world’s most accurate satellite navigation technology. Galileo provides better positioning navigation, unique accuracy, and faster detection of emergency beacon signals, helping rescue teams when every minute matters. Users around the world can now access a highly accurate, guaranteed global positioning service under civilian control. HUBER+SUHNER currently supplies more than 4,500 radio frequency components to Thales Alenia Space in Italy for a number of the Galileo satellites, which use HUBER+SUHNER adapters to connect the antennas to the active satellite components.
