Galileo enters the United Nations Office for Outer Space (UNOOSA) hall of fame !
On June 10th, 2013, the UNOOSA unveiled a newcomer in their permanent exhibit at the Vienna International Center.
While UNOOSA currently has on display three models of satellite navigation systems (GPS (USA), Glonass (Russian Federation) and Beidou (China) ), the European Union, who is a founding Member of the International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (ICG) is now also represented thanks to a mockup of its shining new Galileo Satellite (picture © UNOOSA).
The ICG promotes international cooperation on issues of mutual interest related to civil satellite-based positioning, navigation, timing, and value-added services under the umbrella of the United nations.
