Galileo, le « GPS européen », entre enfin en service, Sciences & Prospectives

jueves, 15 de diciembre de 2016

Allo Bruxelles, ici l'espace. Près de vingt ans après la naissance, en 1999, du projet Galileo, le « GPS européen » est enfin entré en service ce jeudi. Le lancement par Ariane 5 mi-novembre de quatre nouveaux satellites, portant leur total à 18 en orbite, a permis à la constellation européenne d'atteindre la taille nécessaire à son lancement opérationnel. Il reste partiel : le système ne sera pleinement opérationnel qu'en 2020, après la mise en orbite de douze nouveaux satellites.
