GATEs - Galileo Test and Development Evironment in Germany

Galileo, Europe’s future satellite navigation system, is scheduled to become available with up to 14 of the planned 30 satellites in 2014. These satellites, evenly distributed among three orbits at an altitude of nearly 24,000 kilometers, will provide precise positioning signals more reliably than today.
