GMV Building Galileo Second Generation Ground Segment
18 September 2023
GMV is developing the ground control segment for the in-orbit validation (IOV) system for Galileo Second Generation satellites (G2G) under a contract signed recently with the European Space Agency (ESA).
The company will continue to work on the G1G and the new G2G contracts simultaneously until the end of 2026, when Galileo’s ground control segment will be unified to manage the full 50-satellites constellation.
The new ground segment to be developed by GMV will provide control and monitoring capabilities for the G2G satellites, and will mark a technological leap forward compared to current systems.
