Why do people need satellites
Satellites in space travel: areas of application, technology and benefits
Satellites for navigation
Not a day goes by that we don't rely on modern satellite navigation. Rides withCar or truck seldom run without “sat nav”. And global shipping traffic is unimaginable without precise positioning. We also use satellite signals in the private sphere. For example, to determine the location or to optimize our daily routine with theSmartphone. And when we do something for our health, many use fitness watches while exercising.
The signals from four satellites are sufficient to determine the exact location. The American GPS was the first global satellite navigation system, which was later followed by the Russian system GLONASS and the Chinese system Beidou ("Big Bear") as well as other regional systems. The European Union is contributing to this with its Galileo satellite navigation system and expanding the availability of interoperability for users. OHB is the main contractor for the development and manufacture of 34 Galileo FOC * satellites, which will be implemented in series production in Bremen based on the automotive industry.
*) The FOC (full operational capability) phase of the Galileo program is being funded by the European Union. The European Commission and the European Space Agency ESA have signed a contract under which ESA acts as the development and sourcing agency on behalf of the Commission. The views expressed here do not necessarily constitute the positions of the European Union and ESA. "Galileo" is a registered trademark owned by the EU and ESA under the OHIM application number 002742237.
*) The phase up to the achievement of the full operational capability (FOC) of the Galileo program is financed by the European Union. The European Commission and the European Space Agency (ESA) have signed a delegation agreement under which ESA acts on behalf of the Commission as the entity responsible for development and procurement. The views expressed here do not necessarily represent the position of the European Union or ESA. Galileo is a registered trademark of the EU and ESA according to OHIM application no. 002742237.
OHB and the European satellite navigation system Galileo
Satellite navigation will become increasingly precise and offer more extensive services. This is what the European navigation system Galileo stands for. In contrast to GPS or GLONASS, Galileo is a civilly controlled project and combines technological lead with high market potential and the greatest possible benefit. For example, for modern traffic planning and logistics, Galileo will deliver high-precision signals with a previously unattained quality and reliability.
