Quotes

"Then the constellation will be gradually deployed with six to eight satellites launched per year" it claimed
"Galileo operates at a technological frontier and provides applications with huge economic potential, supporting the EU objectives of growth and competitiveness" he added
European Commissioner for Industry and Entrepreneurship Ferdinando Nelli Feroci, commented:  "The launch of these two satellites initiates Galileo's full operational capability phase. It gives new impetus to the Galileo programme, a truly European project which has built on EU countries' resources to maximise the benefits for EU citizens. Galileo operates at a technological frontier and provides applications with huge economic potential, supporting the EU objectives of growth and competitiveness. We are particularly glad to also announce that from 2015 onwards the EU will be able to use a European built "Ariane 5" launch system, thanks to a new contract worth €500 million for the EU's space industry.”"
"A steady stream of launches is planned for the next few years, with two Galileo satellites flown per Soyuz launch and four Galileo satellites flown per launch of an Ariane 5 variant currently in preparation."
