GSA to set up Galileo Reference Centre in the Netherlands

Tuesday 31 May 2016 | 13:47 CET | News
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) announced an agreement to establish the Galileo Reference Centre (GRC) in the Dutch town of Noordwijk. In a statement, the agency said the centre's core mission will be to perform independent monitoring of the EU's flagship Galileo navigation system and report on its findings. The GSA said the GRC's first performance monitoring solution, relying above all on contributions from member states, is expected to be in place at the launch of Galileo's Initial Service Provision phase later this year, with the core facility expected to become operational in 2017.
