NovAtel Developing Galileo Receivers

NovAtel Inc. has announced a 220,000 euro (US$ 235,400) contract award for the initial development phase of the ground reference receiver for the European Galileo program. Work is to be completed by February 2003.

The contract was awarded by the European Space Agency (ESA).

Galileo is the European Union’s global navigation satellite system, expected to be in operation by 2008, with up to 30 satellites orbiting the earth.

NovAtel and ESA are working toward replacing this interim agreement with a full contract worth 500,000 euros. Work under the additional contract would be completed by the end of 2003.
