France: The European Parliament has validated an agreement on cooperation in a civil global navigation satellite system (GNSS) between Ukraine and the European Union. The voting took place at the European Parliament”s plenary session in Strasbourg.

The agreement envisages the creation of ground-based infrastructure – three ranging and integrity monitoring stations (RIMS) in Ukraine under the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) project, which is the ground component of the Galileo European Global Navigation Satellite Systems. It is expected that the coverage of Ukraine with the EGNOS system will increase the accuracy of positioning and air navigation systems, which will help increase the safety of flights and airport operations.
