CGI at the heart of Galileo

Delivering secure, reliable, innovative solutions into space

Galileo is Europe’s own satellite navigation system which provides civilian controlled positioning services which are set to achieve meter range accuracy. Once deployed, the Galileo system will comprise 30 satellites; 24 operational and 6 in-orbit spares.  

CGI has been involved in Galileo since 1999 and has secured the ground control and mission segments, created 2 million lines of code and integrated 100 products meeting complex, functional and security requirements. We have also delivered the Galileo satellite constellation control facility that will control all of Galileo's 30 satellites.

Our infographic presents the facts and history of our involvement with Galileo.
