Joint press conference by Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC, and Jean-Jacques Dordain, Director-General of ESA, on the take off of the Galileo EU satellites

Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, and Jean-Jacques Dordain Director-General of the European Space Agency (ESA), gave a joint press conference to announce that the launch of the first two operational satellites of the EU's global navigation satellite system will take place on 20 October 2011. This is just the first of a series of launches due to take off from Europe's Space Port in Kourou, French Guiana. The launch of the Galileo satellites at an altitude of 23,600km will lead to the provision of initial satellite navigation services in 2014. Successive launches will complete the constellation by 2019.
