Galileo is the EU's own global satellite navigation system. It will consist of
30 satellites and their ground infrastructure.
The definition, development and In-Orbit Validation phase were carried out by 
ESA, and co-funded by ESA and the European Commission. This phase created a 
mini constellation of four satellites and a reduced ground segment dedicated 
to validating the overall concept.

The Full Operational Capability phase is fully funded by the European 
Commission. The Commission and ESA have signed a delegation agreement by which
ESA acts as design and procurement agent on behalf of the Commission.
