GSA Open Days 2019: Accuracy Matters - Look around you!


GSA Open Days 2019: #AccuracyMatters

The European Space Programmes are closer than you think. Satellites might be an invisible infrastructure spinning many thousand kilometres above our heads, but the services they deliver are more than visible. Look around you! Satellite navigation is used in much of our everyday life and, for all of the services that use satellite navigation, accuracy is of the essence.

Planes land smoothly with precision thanks to EGNOS. Trams, trains and buses #UseGalileo for accurate timing information, tractors use EU satellite-based technology for a greener environment. More than 1 billion Galileo-enabled smartphones are now in your pockets.
