The final operational configuration of Galileo will consist of 30 satellites (24 in service, and six cold-redundant spares).

The Galileo Competence Centre is dedicated to the further development of the European navigation satellite system, Galileo. Together with the scientific institutes and facilities of DLR, it will analyse the performance and capabilities of Galileo and other existing systems, and develop, test and validate new ideas and promising technologies, culminating in the deployment of next generation products in close cooperation with industry.

Our goal is to support Europe by providing the best possible navigation technologies in order to achieve an optimal outcome for the users.

The Galileo Competence Center has been founded on June 28th, 2019.
