and its spin-offs are expected to create a huge market for equipment and
services for the private sector.
The commercial case for establishing GALILEO alongside GPS is
that users will be willing to pay for superior services, and users of the Open
Service should prefer a terminal that can provide better coverage and
reliability by receiving both signals.
The United States market for GNSS-based technology and
applications is in full expansion, other regions are only just seeing the
beginning of this tremendous evolution. GALILEO will accelerate the
acceptance of GNSS as a tool for many additional sectors. Higher accuracy
and integrity messages will allow for safety-critical applications. Higher
availability of navigation signals, also indoors or in urban canyons, will
further increase the attractiveness of the technology. GALILEO’s service
framework and infrastructure features such as regional and local elements
will lead to the development of new, innovative applications and services.
