Galileo: EU off-site satellite navigation system on 4 days!

Galileo, the global satellite system of the EU navigation, does not work from 11 July, already for 4 days to date, without any obvious reason. As a result, no satellites are operational until now.

The Galileo satellites are 26 in the set and 24 can not be used. Two of 26 are currently under test, so neither are they functional.

The GSA, the relevant organization of the satellite navigation system, did not say anything about the reason for failure operation of. Of course on Thursday, the first day of the problem, he published in website its a warning for companies and government services using Galileo, that systems may not even be available. Thus, anyone who decided to use the system would also be personally responsible for what arose.

Last Saturday on July 13, he announced it GSA looked more serious. In essence, he said that the satellite system was not working at all and the corresponding signals were not going to be used.

The blow, of course, is great, since Companies and satellite-related services, were forced to find different solutions for their operation. Something quite surprising if you think that Galileo has been out of date service for about 100 hours.

The Galileo satellite system launched 2016, funded by the EU. It was essentially released as an alternative to the Air Force's Global Position System USA (GPS) and the GLONASS of the Russian government. Is provided It's free and so is used by the private sector technology but also by the global academic community.

It is no accident that the shutdown of Galileo was combined with the interruption of prolonged GPS holidays in Israel, Iran, Iraq and Syria at the end of last month. According to Israeli media, the interruption of GPS was due to Russian intervention and not to any other harm.
