With the 11th Soyuz launch from the Guiana Space Center in French Guiana, Arianespace continues to deploy the Galileo constellation for the European Commission and the European Space Agency (ESA). Arianespace has orbited the two latest satellites in the Galileo constellation, the seventh and eighth, for the European Commission, within the scope of a contract with the European Space Agency (ESA). The 11th Soyuz launch from the Guiana Space Center took place on Friday, March 27 at 6:46 pm local time. Arianespace continues to deploy the landmark Galileo project, fulfilling its mission of guaranteeing independent access to space for Europe.

Galileo, an emblematic project for Europe The first infrastructure jointly produced and financed by the European Union, Galileo incorporates the most innovative technologies, developed in Europe for the benefit of its citizens. Galileo will give Europe its own satellite navigation system, offering a host of applications. Under civilian control, it offers a guaranteed, high-precision positioning service, independent from other current systems. Galileo will deploy five services with global coverage, intended for distinct uses: general public, commercial, safety of life, public regulated and search & rescue. The initial services will be operational in 2016. Galileo satellites in the Full Operational Capacity (FOC) series are built in Europe, under prime contractor OHB System (Bremen), with all payloads supplied by SSTL (Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, UK – a 99%-owned subsidiary of Airbus Defence and Space).
