Contract for operation of Galileo satellites awarded to DLR Gesellschaft für Raumfahrtanwendungen

The European Space Agency (ESA) and Spaceopal GmbH have achieved agreement on the operation of 18 Galileo satellites.

Spaceopal is a joint venture between DLR Gesellschaft für Raumfahrtanwendungen (GfR)mbH and the Italian company Telespazio S.p.A. The operating agreement between Spaceopal and ESA is the fourth of six contracts for the Galileo deployment phase.

The specific tasks will include the control of the satellites, monitoring of receiving equipment deployed worldwide and the on-ground processing of navigation data. These tasks will be performed in the two Galileo Control Centres located in Oberpfaffenhofen and Fucino (Italy) by DLR GfR and Telespazio respectively.

The first satellite launches will take place late next year and a total of 18 satellites will be in orbit by October 2014 for the introduction of the first navigation services. Spaceopal is responsible for the preparation and implementation of overall operations.
