Safer transport, efficient agriculture, cleaner shipping, more reliable surveying and new innovative applications that help citizens in their daily lives; Galileo will have the power to do it all.
But linking Galileo to user needs requires an all-important cornerstone: the receiver.
Receivers act as a prism, translating navigation signals sent by satellites into a wide array of positioning and timing services.
Many of the leading industry players already have commercial products that are ready to use Galileo.
Today, almost 40% of receiver models on the market are Galileo-enabled and more than 60% of available receivers integrate EGNOS.
Since 2009 the European GNSS Agency has been working closely with chipset and receiver manufacturers, to ensure Galileo will be used to its full potential. This work includes technical workshops, sharing of Galileo updates, co-marketing and management of dedicated funding for receiver development.
