Brussels, Belgium: “Galileo was not just created to give Europe independence in navigation but also to ensure that Europe could have a share of the large and growing GNSS market,” advised Gard Ueland, President, Galileo Services. That market is foreseen to grow to 240 billion Euros by 2021.
Ueland cautioned, “However, European GNSS research is in trouble as there is very little support on the national level. Unfortunately GNSS is not high on the European list of priorities.”
Ueland shared his views during a debate on Galileo – its current status and future opportunities, organised by Secure World Foundation (SWF). One can click here to read his full presentation.
