Galileo navigation system already counts with 18 satellites
Galileo navigation system has 18 satellites in space
During the day of November 17th 2016, the European Space Agency put into orbit, using the space rocket Ariane 5, a total of four new satellites for the Galileo navigation system, numbered 15, 16, 17 and 18, to become part of the constellation of geopositioning satellites.
You may be wondering why we are telling you this. Well, because it’s really good news for Aureel, since our products will be using the Galileo navigation system to bring an astonishing accuracy for geopositioning, like REEN. This will allow us to track the pace in real time with virtually no error.
Currently, our products and prototypes use GNSS-EGNOS, a complementary service for the GPS and GLONASS networks to provide a better precision and reliability on the received signals, allowing an accuracy under 2 meters.
However, in 2017 we will be able to start using the service of the new Galileo navigation system, and by 2018 all the 24 expected satellites will be operative. Our products will be using the European Union’s global navigation system intended for civilians, Galileo. With an accuracy of less than 1 meter!
Aureel’s products will be perfectly adapted to this new european technology. This way athletes could enjoy and take advantage of the aeroespacial cutting-edge technology in their day to day workouts.
Thanks to this higher accuracy provided by the European Space Agency (ESA) with its set of Galileo satellites, athletes from all over the world will be able to train in a more reliable manner, either because the pace tracked by our products will be more precise, or because of the extra safety by being able to locate someone that is in trouble anywhere in the planet.
If you want more information about the Galileo navigation system you could read it in the European Space Agency ESA’s website by clicking here, where they could give you a way better explanation than us.
That’s it for now! We want to say goodbye with the video of the launching of the Ariane 5 rocket, carrying inside the four new satellites ready to join their in-space brothers. Enjoy! We will keep working.
