EU, SpaceX finalizing plan to launch Galileo satellites
14 November 2023
The European Union is in the final stages of finalizing a deal with SpaceX to launch four Galileo navigation satellites in 2024.
The final obstacle to completion is negotiating a security agreement to protect sensitive technologies on the satellites.
The launch contract was completed in July, and the European Commission had approved a proposal from the European Space Agency to use the Falcon 9 for the launch.
