The European Commission (EC) first presented plans for a European
Galileo satellite navigation system in 1999. A four-phase development
is planned with funding from both public and private sectors. Galileo
is designed for both civilian and government purposes, the system will
be controlled and operated by civil management. Galileo will be
composed of: a constellation of 30 satellites; a number of globally
located ground stations; and a ground control and monitoring system -
very similar to the structure, format and layout of GPS. Development of
the system has been underway since 2001.
