Galileo is a new satellite navigation system being developed by the European Union. It will be a civil, internationally controlled and operated system that will secure the long-term availability of satellite-based navigation services for multi-modal purposes throughout the European region and beyond. This paper reports on the European efforts toward the development of Galileo. The current issues relating to the architecture and development programme of the Galileo system are also presented in the paper.
